Sigourney Weaver will return for ‘Avatar’ sequels

But the 'Aliens' actress is still unsure of 'Ghostbusters 3'

Sigourney Weaver has revealed that she will return for the Avatar sequels, despite her character, Dr Grace Augustine, not making it to the final credits of the first film.

Speaking to Coming Soon, she explained that the film’s creator has said the door is well and truly open:

Don’t worry, I will be back. Jim Cameron says no one ever dies in science fiction. He’s told me the stories for the next two movies, and I have to say that they’re absolutely wonderful and there’s a real treat in store.

The sequels to Avatar – the most successful movie of all time – have no confirmed start date for shooting. However, Weaver, reiterated that the ‘Avatar 2’ and ‘Avatar 3’ will be shot back-to-back.

In other sequel news, the actress spoke about the status of the Ghostbusters follow-up with muted enthusiasm.

With no final script written, the woman who once was Dana Barrett, said simply, “We already did two wonderful films and, if we have to let this one go, that’s fine.”


Sigourney Weaver can be seen alongside Twilight star, Taylor Lautner, in Abduction, due for release in the UK on September 28.
