Following the previous confirmed returns of several other familiar faces, it’s now been revealed that Giovanni Ribisi is another who will be back for James Cameron’s four Avatar sequels.
As per Deadline, the My Name is Earl and Sneaky Pete actor will be returning as Parker Selfridge, the head of the RDA outfit who were looking to exploit Pandora for its unobtanium.
Ribisi joins other returning names in Sam Worthington, Zoe Saldana, Sigourney Weaver, Joel David Moore and Stephen Lang – with Lang’s Colonel Quaritch confirmed to be the ‘big bad’ of all four sequels despite the character being killed off at the end of Cameron’s first Avatar. In terms of new additions, the sequels have brought in Kate Winslet, Cliff Curtis, Oona Chaplin and Jack Champion so far.
With filming now officially underway on the first two sequels, the current plan is for Avatar 2 to be released on December 18th, 2020, Avatar 3 for December 17th, 2021, Avatar 4 for December 20th, 2024, and then Avatar 5 to finally wrap things up on December 19th, 2025.
