Zoe Saldana says she'll be working on the 'Avatar' sequels for ''at least eight or nine months''.

The 'Colombiana' actress - who is pregnant with twins with her husband Marco Perego - has revealed that the upcoming follow-ups to the 2009 blockbuster will be filmed one after the other in California.

She said: ''We're going to be shooting mainly in Los Angeles and that will make things easier for me since I live there.

''Because we're doing the sequels back-to-back, it's going to take at least eight or nine months to finish them.''

Saldana starred as Neytiri in the first instalment of the adventure fantasy and is to reprise her role in the upcoming sequels, which are to be released in 2016 and 2017 respectively, and she claims the director is nearing the completion of her and her co-stars' - Sam Worthington and Sigourney Weaver's - scripts.

Speaking to the Daily Mirror newspaper, she added: ''James Cameron is still working on the final drafts of the script and then everyone in the cast will get the call.''

The 'Guardians of the Galaxy' star also spoke about the types of characters she likes to portray and confessed she wouldn't feel comfortable appearing in a film as simply someone's love interest.

The 36-year-old beauty explained: ''I could never play just the girlfriend kind of role where, as a woman, you're there just as an afterthought to the male character.

''I've always held out to play dynamic and forceful women, and it's worked out very well for me.''
