Sigourney Weaver over reden 4 Avatar sequels

Sigourney Weaver over reden 4 Avatar sequelsSigourney Weaver sprak tegenover Entertainment Weekly over haar terugkeer in de rol van wetenschapper Dr. Grace Augustine in de vier aankomende Avatar sequels van James Cameron. Ze ging specifiek in op het gegeven waarom het zo belangrijk is dar er vier films komen. Weaver zei:

“There’s a very good reason why it turned out to be four sequels. Having read all four of them, I think they’re absolutely extraordinary and worth the wait. These films are very much about the peril of this beautiful planet, and [James Cameron] is continuing the same themes of greed and callousness of the corporations and plight of the indigenous people. At this point after a long and very satisfying career — I can’t believe it’s been 40 years, but anyway — I’m very excited to be able to work on these four stories. I can really, really appreciate it.”

Pre-productie van de vier films is op dit moment gaande in Nieuw Zeeland en de opnames zullen officieel beginnen op 25 september. Weaver voegde toe:

“It’s the most ambitious project by far I’ve ever been involved in, and the most moving, the most astonishing, beautiful. I think all of us who get to be a part of it are just in awe when we see the artwork. It’s just incredible to be living now when we can bring this kind of film experience to the public. Because I think as much as ‘Avatar’ changed what people want in a film experience, this goes a hundred times farther.”

De vier vervolgen staan gepland voor 18 december 2020, 17 december 2021, 20 december 2024 en 19 december 2025. Hoofdrollen in de sequels worden gespeeld door Zoe SaldanaSam WorthingtonSigourney WeaverStephen Lang en Joel David Moore. Nieuwe castleden zijn Cliff Curtis en Oona Chaplin.
