Giovanni Ribisi is set to reprise his role of Parker Selfridge in all four of James Cameron’s upcoming “Avatar” sequels at 20th Century Fox.
In the 2009 film, Ribisi’s Selfridge is the head administrator of RDA and effectively the secondary villain of the first film – the man in charge of the Pandora expedition who pushes exploitation of the planet’s key mineral resource of unobtanium.
Production for the follow-ups officially began last month in Manhattan Beach and is said to be the most expensive shoot of its kind with an estimated collective budget expected to top $1 billion.
Cameron and Jon Landau will produce and Cameron wrote the script alongside Josh Friedman, Rick Jaffa, Amanda Silver and Shane Salerno. “Avatar 2” is slated to open on December 18th 2020. Subsequent entries hit 2021, 2024 & 2025.
