It's official - Sigourney Weaver's in Avatar

As TF Reported oh, ages ago, Sigourney Weaver is set to reunite with James Cameron for his Avatar project – the first time the pair have worked together since Aliens.

The fact that both Cameron and Weaver are notoriously, um, difficult to work with, suggests the script has to be something of a corker if they’re prepared to put up with each other again.

It may also interest you to know that Wes Studi, Peter Mensah, Joel David Moore, CCH Pounder and Lez Alonzo have also signed on. But probably not, because you’ve only heard of half of them.

Still, the thought of James and Sigourney back together sends shivers down our spines. Summer 2009 suddenly seems like a hell of a long way away...
