Michael Biehn Talks Avatar

Michael Biehn has confirmed to Sci-Fi Wire that he has talked with director James Cameron about a role in his upcoming 3D epic “Avatar”.

The move would mark a reteaming of Biehn with Cameron and Sigourney Weaver, who last starred together in 1986’s “Aliens”.

“I’ve had two very very good meetings with Jim, and they went very well… There have been a lot of other sources that have reported they have sources saying that I’m doing it, but so far I haven’t heard anything from Jim. He hasn’t cast the role yet” says Biehn.

“Avatar” is the story of a wounded ex-marine who is unwillingly sent to settle and exploit a faraway planet. He gets caught up in a battle for survival by the planet’s inhabitants.
