Avatar 2 is adding to its cast!
The Crazy Rich Asians star is currently starring in CBS’ Star Trek: Discovery. She’s previously worked on the Oscar-winning film Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, Tomorrow Never Dies and Memoirs of a Geisha.
Cameron, 64, has four Avatar sequels in the works, the second of which will be released in December 2020.
While the plot for the highly-anticipated sequel remains largely under wraps, Cameron gave a few tidbits about what to expect in a new interview with Empire in February.
Cameron revealed the sequel takes plays a few years after the original left off and Jake (Worthington) and Neytiri (Saldana) are still together and have an 8-year-old daughter.
And the director said that one “critical” scene is about an argument between the two main stars that is witnessed by their daughter.
“There’s a three-page argument scene between Jake and Neytiri, a marital dispute, very, very critical to the storyline,” Cameron told Empire. “I wound up shooting it all from the point of view of the eight-year-old hiding under the structure and peeking in.”

The director also opened up about reuniting with his Titanic star Winslet in a February interview with Vulture, saying the actress “was a phenomenal collaborator and just so gung-ho” about preparing for her role as Ronal, a free-diving member of the Pandoran race, in Avatar 2.
“She was a dream to work with — not the pain in the a— that she was the first time,” he joked. “No, she was a dream on Titanic as well.”
Avatar 2 is scheduled for release in December 2020.
