Sigourney Weaver told the world that she would be in the Avatar sequels a couple of weeks ago (here) but now it’s been confirmed that she was back for the second movie
The Hollywood Reporter writes that James Cameron confirmed: “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.
“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,” Cameron said in a statement.
She joins previously returning cat memebers Sam Worthington, Zoe Saldana and Stephen Lang.
The first sequel will be released in December 2016, the second and third each a year later.
