    wow…gee i hope that they look beyond Americas shores for filming locations…
    (Disclaimer, i am Australian, I googled Berks County and it appears to be in the US…)

    They are. Vietnam and Greenland are already scheduled for filming I believe.

    I hope he does some filming here in Reading,PA home of the landmard Pagoda.

    thank God for that

    This would be an awesome place to shoot for Avatar Roku's Temple on the crescent island. Greenland will also be good for the South Pole.

    They are looking to film in an asian looking background but the actors will technically be all white…

    except um Zuko…

    Greenland is where they will shoot for two weeks and then the rest of the movie will be filmed in PA

    I am terribly excited at the prospect of him filming in Berks County. I don't believe there has been a film shot here since “Rabbit, Run” back in 1968 (?). And we have plenty of local talent for extras.

    Yup they're officially coming to Reading! It was in my local newspaper yesterday and I'm just looking for when they're gonna be here. Oh, and I'm just glad that they got someone as awesome as Dev Patel to be Aang – at least the main guy isn't a whitey.

    I love the look of the building. I hope it is prominent in the movie.
