Hollywood star Kate Winslet and James Cameron are reuniting for the first time after they collaborated on ‘Titanic’ two decades ago – which remained the top-grossing film of all time until the director’s ‘Avatar’ released in 2009.
Winslet has signed on for a starring role in Avatar sequels, according to reports.
“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 was quoted as saying.
“I can’t wait to see her bring the character of Ronal to life.” He added.
Production for all four planned Avatar sequels is under way in California. The first film is due to release on December 18, 2020. The second sequel will be out on December 17, 2021, followed by Avatar 4 on December 20, 2024 and Avatar 5 on December 19, 2025.
Winslet has a string of movies lined up for release in the upcoming months. ‘The Mountain Between Us’, in which she stars opposite Idris Elba, is out this Friday. The Reader Oscar winner next appears in Woody Allen’s ‘Wonder Wheel’ for Amazon, which opens December 1. She will also star in eOne’s untitled biopic about American photojournalist and war correspondent Elizabeth “Lee” Miller.
