One of the reasons James Cameron cast Kate Winslet in at least one of his four upcoming Avatar sequels was the actress’ ability to hold her breath underwater for about seven minutes, the kind of talent he wanted all of the film’s actors to work on. How long do you think Vin Diesel can hold his breath?
Diesel and Cameron appeared together in a video posted to Instagram announcing the star’s impending arrival to the world of Pandora; unsurprisingly, the nature of his role has yet to be described. Diesel explained that Cameron’s a director he’s always wanted to work with, and Cameron, for his part, seemed quite stoked to be in Diesel’s presence.
Your guess is as good as anyone’s as to what, but in space, it seems as if production’s chugging along smoothly.
Avatar 2 is slated to hit theatres December, 2020, with Avatar 3 following in December, 2021.
