James Cameron Says Stephen Lang Will Be Back For ‘Avatar’ Sequels
The Movie God   |  @   |  

Stephen Lang in James Cameron's Avatar

Director James Cameron says Stephen Lang, the actor who played Colonel Miles Quaritch in 2009’s Avatar, will return for the sequels. All three of them, which Cameron plans to shoot together and begin releasing in 2016.

Quaritch is one of the villains in the original movie who leads the private security team tasked with protecting and clearing the way for the company mining valuable natural resources from the moon named Pandora, which causes damage to the lands of the Na’vi, a humanoid species that makes their home on the moon.

If you have not seen Avatar and plan to this would be a good time to stop reading.

For those who have seen Avatar, you know that things didn’t end so well for Col. Quaritch, making his involvement in the sequels a bit unexpected. The one thing we don’t know yet, is how exactly he’ll be involved.

Here’s what Cameron had to say about the announcement:

“Steven was so memorable in the first film, we’re privileged to have him back. I’m not going to say exactly how we’re bringing him back, but it’s a science fiction story, after all. His character will evolve into really unexpected places across the arc of our new three-film saga. I really look forward to working with such a gifted actor, who’s also become a good friend.”

Lang has previously appeared in Terra Nova and the Conan the Barbarian remake more recently, and movies like Tombstone and Gettysburg earlier in his career.

How do you see Quaritch coming back?

    Perhaps they cloned him? Sounds stupid to me, couldn’t Cameron have thought of some new villains?
