Sigourney Weaver to star as new character in Avatar sequels

0

I suppose it is a movie with aliens

While we've all been hotly chomping on the bit wondering if Sigourney Weaver will ever appear in the Alien prequels kicked off with Prometheus it appears she is going to be continuing on in an entirely different alien franchise. The actress will be playing a new character in the Avatar sequels (you may remember she died in the first one). Cameron says that won't be stopping her from returning.

“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.” 

As we all probably guessed she most likely didn't really die, but instead became part of nature or something like that. Seems logical, right? Whatever. If it isn't Ripley I'm not that excited about it.
