True Blue 'Avatar' Star Opens Up About Sequel

"We've been discussing that with Jim," Sam Worthington told Moviefone from the set of his new film, 'Man on a Ledge.' "He had some ideas he told us, while we were filming, which were really cool and out there."
The 34-year-old Aussie actor (he was born in England but raised down under) explained the work Cameron's doing to recreate Pandora: "At the moment, he's still writing what he calls 'The Bible' and detailing the world. Once he's detailed the world -- more so than it's already detailed in his big brain, anyway -- then, he said he can write the script, and we can go explore the world. Things like going underwater....going in the floating mountains."
And what's in store for his character, Jake Sully, the Marine who adapts to an 'avatar' body and helps defend an alien moon with his Na'vi love (Zoe Saldana)?
"I always joked and said that they were married, and Jake Sully got lazy, and Netiri kicked his butt," Worthington said. "But there is something to [the notion of being] in a genetically-engineered body now, which he is. Is there a "use by" date on it? I don't know. What's the new dilemma? Is it just humans coming back, or is something even bigger than can threaten them, threaten the world? We can look at our world again, and see that we know we're hurting the environment, and we know we can do things about it. But what else are we doing that's wrong...?"
Worthington has certainly been doing something right in his career, as the former bricklayer has a full slate of films coming up, including 'The Debt' (co-starring Helen Mirren) which premiered at this year's Toronto film fest, and 'Man on a Ledge' (co-starring Kyra Sedgwick) hitting theaters in 2012.
