It’s a titanic reunion - Kate Winslet is joining the Avatar franchise, reuniting the actor with Titanic director James Cameron.
A spokesperson for 20th Century Fox confirmed the news Tuesday. It was first reported by the online trade publication Deadline.
According to Deadline, Winslet will be playing a character named Ronal, but no word on just how many of the films she’ll be part of. Cameron said that they had been looking to work together again for 20 years.
“Kate and I have been looking for something to do together for 20 years, since our collaboration on Titanic, which was one of the most rewarding of my career,” Cameron said in a statement. “I can’t wait to see her bring the character of Ronal to life.”
Four Avatar sequels are planned to be released in December of 2020, 2021, 2024 and 2025. They’re touted to be the most expensive films ever made, with a combined budget of $1 billion.
