James Cameron has confirmed that actress Sigourney Weaver will appear in his next three “Avatar” films.
Considering Weaver’s character Grace Augustine died in the first film, how will she return? Cameron says she’ll be playing another character:
“Sigourney and I have a long creative history, dating back to 1985 when we made Aliens. We’re good friends who’ve always worked well together, so it just feels right that she’s coming back for the Avatar sequels.
Her character of Grace Augustine, as fans know, died in the first movie, so she’s playing a different and in many ways more challenging character in the upcoming films. We’re both looking forward to this new creative challenge, the latest chapter in our long and continuing collaboration.”
Cameron is prepping production ahead of shooting on all three films starting later this year.
