Kate Winslet Joins 'Avatar' Universe With Director James Cameron


Deadline reports that Cameron offered Winslet the role of Ronal, a new character whose exact nature remains unspecified. 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.

Currently, Canadian director James Cameron is working on a potential total of eight movies, virtually simultaneously.

U.S. entertainment trade website Deadline, which first reported the story, says Winslet will play a character called Ronal in the follow-ups to the biggest movie of all time.

Production for the four "Avatar" sequels began in late September, with a reported production budget of over $1 billion, making it the most expensive film series in history.

Kate Winslet has dropped a bombshell onTitanicfans, revealing that she never actually fancied her nineties co-star Leonardo DiCaprio. As for release dates, Avatar 2 is now scheduled for release on December 18, 2020-11 years after the first movie was released in theaters, destroying all box office records including the crown worn by Titanic for the 12 previous years.

People will get into cinemas for a James Cameron flick, but with a whole lot of other films to spend their money on and at least some underlying consensus that Avatar sequels are unnecessary, it's a lot to risk.

Avatar 2 is scheduled for release on December 18, 2020, Avatar 3 on December 17, 2021, Avatar 4 on December 20, 2024, and Avatar 5 on December 19, 2025.

Cameron and Winslet worked together on the 1997 epic film "Titanic".

Winslet joins most of the original cast, including Sam Worthington, Zoe Saldana, Sigourney Weaver, and Scott Lang, along with a number of new, younger faces, as the story focuses on Jake, Neytiri, and their children.

"It's gonna be obviously more like a ten year gap between Avatar and Avatar 2".
