Avatar made $2.7 billion worldwide back in 2009, so the question of sequels was not if but when. Director James Cameron has certainly been taking his time, working with different sets of writers to hash out three scripts that will shoot back-to-back-to-back. They were supposed to begin filming early this year, but that has been delayed. One of the only things we know about the new movies is that much of the cast, including Sigourney Weaver, will be back. Considering that Weaver’s character, Dr. Grace Augustine, dies near the end of Avatar, we’ve had some questions about how this is going to happen, and she has now come forward and revealed that she is playing a very different part in the new installments.
Weaver is currently stumping for Neill Blomkamp’s robot drama Chappie, as well as fielding questions about his much discussed Alien movie. But that’s not all she has to talk about, and during an appearance in the U.K. on The Jonathan Ross Show, she revealed a small bit of how she fits into Avatar 2.
