Michelle Rodriguez has recently explained why she rejected James Cameron’s offer for upcoming Avatar sequel.
Michelle, who play the role of Marine pilot Captain Trudy Chacón in 2009's Avatar, revealed that James wanted to bring her character back from the dead in the new sequel.
“Dude, when I saw Jim recently, he was like, ‘I was thinking, What if Michelle came back? A lot of the other characters came back [in The Way of Water],’” said the actress.
Michelle continued, “I was like, ‘You can't do that – I died as a martyr’.”
The actress told the outlet, “’Jim, I came back in Resident Evil, I wasn't supposed to. I came back in Machete; I wasn't supposed to. I came back with Letty (in the Fast & Furious franchise), I wasn't supposed to’.”
“We can't do a fourth, that would be overkill!” remarked the actress.
Reflecting on all of her characters that came back, Michelle explained, “I guess they don't know what to do with the girl who doesn't have a boyfriend. ‘She doesn't have a boyfriend. Should we keep her alive, or kill her?’”
