Two time Academy award winning American Composer, conductor and orchestrator of film music James Horner has been composing music scores for movies since 1978. His 37 year long career has seen him score the soundtracks for many cult, classic and beloved movies such as Star trek II: the Wrath of Khan and its sequel Star Trek III: the Search for Spock, Braveheart, Apollo 13 and over 100 others, working fequently with top Hollywood directors like Steven Speilberg, Ron Howard, Joe Johnston and John Woo. Horner has worked with Avatar creator, writer and director James Cameron three times since the 1980's in Aliens, Titanic and of course with Avatar, and the composer is set to score the many planned sequels, though a recent quote from Horner has recently been misinterpreted by some websites. Speaking with Hey u Guys Horner said...
Right now, Jim has got four sequels, script-wise, and he’s trying to make it into three. And that’s where his effort is going, right now, to keep it to three sequels. Because he’s got so much going on. How do you keep it from expanding into yet a fourth movie—a fifth movie, I guess, total. He’ll get that sorted out.
Even the source for this news has misread what Horner is saying - James Cameron is known for telling full bodied, expansive storys. The uncut editions of many of his past movies such as Aliens, the Abyss, Terminator 2: Judgment Day, Titanic and of course Avatar are much, much longer than their finely cut theatrical release versions. As such it really comes as no surprise that in the writing process alone Cameron has created so much content that he coud feasibly create a whole other sequel, but that, as Horner clearly states above, is not the case - Cameron intends to keep the franchise down to three more movies, no more.
