Avatar actor Sam Worthington was recently on the breakfast show for Australian radio station Nova 96.9 (hat tip to Yahoo!), where he revealed that Avatar 2 will begin shooting by October 2014, with the third and fourth installment filming immediately thereafter; in total, principal photography should amount to about a year in length.
