Colonel Quarith (Stephen Lang) may have died in 'Avatar', but that doesn't mean he won't be seen in the next three sequels.
And we all thought it was impossible for him to come back ...
Stephen Lang, who played the villainous Colonel Quaritch in James Cameron’s Avatar, is set to reprise his role in three upcoming sequels despite (spoiler alert!) having been killed off in the original movie, multiple individuals familiar with the project have told TheWrap.
Lang’s character died when Neytiri (Zoe Saldana) shot him twice through the chest with her father’s bow.
Cameron and his team of screenwriters (Josh Friedman, Rick Jaffa, Amanda Silver, Shane Salerno) will now have to come up with a creative way to explain Quaritch’s return to the sci-fi franchise.
After Avatar, Lang went on to star in Fox’s big-budget series Terra Nova as another ruthless military figure, Commander Taylor. Lately, he has had a recurring role on USA’s In Plain Sight.
Lang, who got his start playing gossip hound Freddy Lounds in Michael Mann’s seminal serial killer movie Manhunter, is represented by Innovative Artists. — Reuters
