Kate Winslet, 'Titanic' director James Cameron to reunite for 'Avatar' sequels

Share

Academy Award-winning actress Kate Winslet has taken a starring role in the "Avatar" sequels.

"Kate and I have sought to do something together for 20 years, since our collaboration on Titanic, which has been one of the most rewarding of my career".

On Tuesday afternoon, Cameron and Winslet announced the actress has joined the upcoming Avatar installment-or installments, for, as Vanity Fair pointed out, it's not clear in how numerous sequels Winslet might appear; the first of four will premiere in 2020-playing a character named Ronal. It's something I think the director is rectifying as most of the cast which worked with him for the first Avatar film are all on board for the sequels and seemingly happy with his nearly obsessive approach to detail.

As for how Kate Winslet's character Ronal fits into that, or if she'll be in all of the Avatar sequels, we have no idea. Yet, Kate Winslet claims she's never been attracted to Leonardo DiCaprio.

Winslet and Cameron previously made box office history with their 1997 film Titanic. But that was a long time ago, and both Winslet and Cameron have tried to downplay any differences they might have had.

Just last month we learned that Cameron had officially started production on the first of his four planned Avatar sequels.

Not much is known about who or what Ronal is, but the original Avatar movie featured the Na'vi, a tribe of humanoid beings indigenous to the planet Pandora, who were most notable for their distinctive blue hue. The first "Avatar", released in 2009, is the highest-grossing worldwide release of all time with $2.7 billion. The film was a global phenomenon, going on to scoop up eleven Oscars (a record later surpassed by The Lord of the Rings: Return of the King). A little three-year break is then in the schedule, before Avatar 4 arrives in theaters on December 20, 2024.
