When you hear the news that Sigourney Weaver will return for all three Avatar sequels, one thing is striking when you watch Avatar online. Her character died! But, according to James Cameron, that’s not going to let him get in the way of a working relationship that dates back decades.
“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,” Weaver said.
Cameron then addressed the elephant in the room.
“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.”
Weaver may not be “reprising” her Avatar role per se, but she recently said she’d be up for doing more Alien movies!
