Two decades since she starred as Rose in Titanic, Kate Winslet is now reuniting with director James Cameron for the Avatar sequels, it is learnt.
Cameron kicked off production on the four films to be shot in blocks of two last week and now Winslet is joining the cast to play a charater called Ronal.
“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. “I can’t wait to see her bring the character of Ronal to life,” he added.
There are no details about what the character will be up to in the new movies, but she’ll appear along with the likes of Sam Worthington, Zoe Saldana, Sigourney Weaver and Cliff Curtis, plus the new, younger cast members who were revealed recently.
The first of the Avatar follow-ups will debut on 18 December 2020. Winslet will be back on our screens in The Mountain Between Us that will release this Friday.
