James Cameron is really pushing these Avatar sequels. The Oscar-winning director has three follow-ups planned for the 2009 fantasy adventure and used a select choice of words to describe his excitement.

"I can tell you one thing about them, they're gonna be b**chin'," he told Empire magazine. "You will s**t yourself with your mouth wide open."

The director also took time to speak about the movie's frame rate, saying, "My thinking at the time [when he announced the sequels] was that 60 [FPS] might be a better segue to the video market.I'll be plugging into a system that's a little more mature, so it makes sense for me to do 48 frames at this point."

Cameron, 60, is currently working on the scripts for Avatar 2, 3 and 4 in New Zealand having previously met with writers Josh Friedman, Amanda Silver, Shane Salerno and Rick Jaffa to "whiteboard" every scene in every movie, before assigning each writer a movie.

"I knew if I assigned them their scripts ahead of time, they'd tune out every time we were talking about the other movie," he said.

Original stars Sam Worthington and Zoe Saldana are reprising their roles as Jake Sully and Neytiri in the sequel, while Sigourney Weaver is also believed to be returning despite her character Grace seemingly dying in the first movie.
