Prepare yourself for more blue-faced new age ponderings - this time at 36,000 feet beneath the waves.

Last month it was reported that James Cameron was planning to set the sequel to Avatar under the sea. Now, it appears that not only is he going to film at the deepest point of the Pacific Ocean, but he's building a unique vessel to do so.

Cameron has commissioned a team of engineers to build a two-seater sub with built-in 3D cameras so he can film footage for use in the sequel, due in 2014.

According to the man himself, the vessel is "half completed in Australia" and he hopes to start his journey to the depths sometime next month. It's doubtful that he'll actually take any actors down there with him although Cameron is planning to film their scenes underwater.

As he told MTV last month, "I think what we should do there is - because we'll have to have characters that are in and under the water - is that we should actually capture them underwater," also promising that the underwater locations would be "equally rich and diverse and crazy and imaginative" as the scenery from the original film.

There are also rumours that Cameron will shoot two Avatar sequels back-to-back, as he told MTV: "That is something that makes a lot of sense, given the nature of these productions,"
