The Australian actor, who played the lead male role in the blockbuster, has reportedly signed up for Avatar 2 but says there is no set date for production to start.
"We've talked about the sequel but Jim does what he wants to do," Worthington said, referring to Cameron.
"That's the thing. He'll do the sequel when it's a challenge for him. He doesn't have to do it for the money and he's not going to be told what to do.

"And when he does it, it's exciting for an audience. That's who he makes movies for.
"I think he's kind of waiting and digesting the movie so he can unleash a movie that takes Avatar and explodes it and expands it even better."
Cameron announced there would be two sequels to the Oscar-winning film in 2010.
In an interview he gave some idea of what his audience can expect when the films eventually make it on to the big screen.
"Part of my focus in the second film is in creating a different environment – a different setting within Pandora," he said.
"And I'm going to be focusing on the ocean on Pandora, which will be equally rich and diverse and crazy and imaginative, but it just won't be a rainforest.
"I'm not saying we won't see what we've already seen; we'll see more of that as well."
