Kate Winslet Reunites With James Cameron For AVATAR Sequels
Kate Winslet has joined the cast of James Cameron's Avatar sequels! This is actually really cool news. I've been a fan of the actress since I first saw her in Peter Jackson's Heavenly Creatures. I also loved her in Titanic, which, as you know, is the film she worked with Cameron on. The two have apparently been wanting to work together since and they finally decided that these upcoming Avatar films would be the right time and project for them. When talking to Deadline, Jackson said:
"Kate and I have been looking for something to do together for 20 years, since our collaboration on Titanic, which was one of the most rewarding of my career. I can’t wait to see her bring the character of Ronal to life."
There's no word on who this character Ronal is, how many of the films that she'll be in, or if she's a human or Na'vi. But, that is the name of her character. Are you happy to hear that Winslet and Cameron are working together again after all these years?
Winslet will join returning stars Sam Worthington, Zoe Saldana, Joel David Moore, Stephen Lang, Matt Gerald and Sigourney Weaver. Cliff Curtis and Oona Chaplin are also joining the sequels along with Stephen Lang as Colonel Miles Quaritch.
The current release dates for the upcoming sequels are as follows: Avatar 2 will hit theaters on December 18, 2020, Avatar 3 will be released on December 17, 2021, Avatar 4 opens on December 20, 2024, and Avatar 5 is scheduled to be released on December 19, 2025.
