Vin Diesel has hinted that he is the latest addition to James Cameron's upcoming Avatar sequel crew. Diesel took to his Instagram page stating that he always wanted to work with the celebrated filmmaker. ''It's long overdue, there is one person in Hollywood I've always wanted to work with and learn from, and so, all things come, I guess, to those that wait," he said.
Playing along, the ace director in the video jested, ''We're actually going to give him the flashy thing from 'Men In Black' when he leaves here so he has no memory whatsoever of what he's seen.''
''And the journey continues... #Blessed #Grateful #Avatar," Diesel captioned the video.
2009’s Avatar focused on the human led Resources Development Administration (RDA) attempting to mine Pandora for unobtanium, a hugely valuable mineral coming out as the world's highest-grossing film of all time.
The James Cameron fantasy movie featured Sam Worthington in the role of disabled former marine Jake Sully, who falls in love with a Na'vi woman played by Zoe Saldana and is drawn into a battle for the survival of her world and his human world when the RDA threatens to destroy it.
Avatar 2 is slated to hit theaters December 18, 2020, with Avatar 3 following in December 17, 2021.
