Sigourney Weaver To Return In The 3 ‘Avatar’ Sequels: “She’s Playing A Different & In Many Ways More Challenging Character”
James Cameron and 20th Century Fox have officially announced that Sigourney Weaver will return in the three ‘Avatar’ sequels, which are scheduled to begin production later this year. Weaver joins previously announced cast returnees Sam Worthington, Zoë Saldana and Stephen Lang. Cameron had the following to say about Weaver returning, “Sigourney and I have a long creative history, dating back to 1985 when we made ‘Aliens.’ We’re good friends who’ve always worked well together, so it just feels right that she’s coming back for the ‘Avatar’ sequels. Her character of Grace Augustine, as fans know, died in the first movie, so she’s playing a different and in many ways more challenging character in the upcoming films. We’re both looking forward to this new creative challenge, the latest chapter in our long and continuing collaboration.”

With Joel and Ethan Coen following their critically acclaimed ‘Inside Llewyn Davis’ with the long-in-development ‘Hail Caesar,’ a new report brings word that Josh Brolin is set to co-star with George Clooney in the film. Clooney has worked with the Coens on a number of films, including ‘O Brother Where Art Thou,’ ‘Intolerable Cruelty’ and ‘Burn After Reading,’ while Brolin worked with them on ‘True Grit’ and ‘No Country for Old Men’ – one of my favorite films of all-time.
‘Hail Caesar’ is said to be about a fixer in Hollywood circa 1950s who works for the studios to protect the stars of the day. George Clooney has been attached to ‘Hail Caesar’ for a while, so perhaps he’s playing the fixer? There’s currently no details about who Josh Brolin will be playing in the film.
