James Cameron has finally settled on a home for his Lightstorm Entertainment production company. The director and his business partner Jon Landau recently announced that the MBS Media Campus, formerly known as Manhattan Beach Studios, will serve as the setting for filming the next to “Avatar” sequels.

The five-year lease includes 115,000-square-feet of soundstage and production office space on the 22-acre campus. The studio’s commitment to environmental design was also integral in attracting Cameron – who intends to make the production of the film carbon neutral. According to the owners, MBS features “an aggressive water conservation program, eco-friendly paints and cleaning products, sustainable café and craft services practices and a number of programs to promote greener transportation by its employees.”

Not content with just standard greening, Cameron is also footing the bill on a full-blown solar array said to “provide all the electricity needed for the “Avatar” films.” The $5M in improvements will also features like a gym for employees and a private screening room for the director.

Off the top of my head, if the “Avatar” sequels really do go solar, they will be the first big-budget Hollywood film to have walked that road – as well as donating a proceeds of box office receipts to green charities.
