Fox’s FX has acquired the broadcast television and basic cable right to the $1 billion sensation that is avatar from sibling Twentieth Century Fox according to reports.   Though no financial details were disclosed the LA Times forecasts the rights at north of $25 million.

It wasn’t made clear when the film would air (or even whether it would wind up actually debuting on FX rather than FOX)  but the multi-year window could begin as early as 2012.

Avatar has grossed more than $350 million in the  U.S. and  more than $1 billion internationally.
