An intriguing bit of news passed onto me by Jamie Bautista, that is now circulating.
It seems that Paramount Pictures and director M. Night Shyamalan have signed a deal with Nickelodeon to produce three live-action films based on the critically-acclaimed and mega-popular animated series Avatar: The Last Airbender. Not much information yet other than this. There's no telling how deeply Avatar creators Bryan Konietzko and Michael Dante DiMartino will be involved in this venture. At the very least, it's pretty intriguing. With the series as far along as it is right now, perhaps these films will tell the further adventures of the Avatar? Let the speculation begin, I guess. Will the Avatar films be slightly spooky or have a big twist at the end? Will M. Night do another one of his infamous cameos?
For now though, I'm on an Avatar fast... no word yet on the Third Season. I'm keeping my eyes, ears and fingers peeled on the Web for any sign. We'll just have to see.
