It seems that Pandora could be getting a new addition. James Cameron’s four Avatar sequels have been in the works for quite some time. Recently, a new video revealed an unexpected visitor to the movies’ set. Yesterday, Vin Diesel, the ‘The Fast and the Furious’ franchise actor, shared a post to Instagram of him and the director. Cameron hilariously joked that he’ll have to erase Diesel’s memory for what he’s seen. Meanwhile, Diesel hinted that working with the director is a dream come true.
Vin Diesel in Conversation with James Cameron
“Okay, so here we are on the set of Avatar 2, 3, 4, and 5. It’s top secret, it’s like the Manhattan Project. My old buddy Vin, and we’re actually gonna give him the flashy thing from Men in Black when he leaves here so he has no memory whatsoever,” Cameron easily joked.
Diesel latter added, “You never saw this!”
“But I’ll tell you, it’s long overdue. There is one person in Hollywood I’ve always wanted to work with and learn from,” he said pointing to Cameron.
Though there is no official word whether the actor has joined the franchise or not, but the video hints that he could at least be making some sort of cameo appearance. As of now, none of the four Avatar sequels are listed in Diesel’s “upcoming projects” on IMDb. But that doesn’t mean fans won’t be seeing him pop up in Pandora.
This is especially true when you consider Diesel’s post’s caption:
“And the journey continues… #Blessed #Grateful #Avatar,” he wrote. This could mean that he is just grateful for getting to see the set, but we suspect there is more to it than that!
Reactions on Social Media
Many fans were quick to comment on the post, clearly excited about the possibility of seeing Diesel in the films.
“Just going to say that the talent and fun you bring to any project you take part in makes it a must-see on my list!” @marten_broadcloake wrote.
