If you make the world’s most successful movie it’s only natural to want to cash in on the success. But Avatar director James Cameron is taking things to a different level by shooting three sequels to the sci-fi fable in one fell swoop.

That’s according to Avatar star Sigourney Weaver, who confirmed that she’s been hired to work on three sequels that will be filmed back to back.

Weaver, who has worked with Cameron since starring in Aliens in 1979, revealed the director’s plans in comments to the entertainment website Showbiz411.com. She said she would be starting work on the project later this year.

There was no word on when the first sequel would hit theatres, though Cameron did say in early 2011 that he hoped to release it at the end of 2015, followed a year later by the second sequel.
