Sigourney Weaver to lend voice to Avatar
Today Ubisoft announced that Sigourney Weaver will voice the role of Dr. Grace Augustine for James Cameron's Avatar: The Game.
Weaver's character will be featured in the versions of the game released on Xbox 360 video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, the PS3 computer entertainment system, Wii(TM) system from Nintendo and PC. Other actors from the film that will appear in the game include Michelle Rodriguez, Giovanni Ribisi and Stephen Lang.
Rodriguez's character, Trudy Chacon, functions as the player's chopper pilot throughout the Xbox 360, PLAYSTATION 3 system and PC versions of the game. Ribisi reprises his role as the arrogant Parker Selfridge, appearing exclusively in the Wii version of the game. The film's antagonist, Col. Quaritch, played and voiced by Lang, will appear in the Xbox 360, PLAYSTATION 3 system and PC versions.
"We are very excited to have actors from the film provide voiceover work for the different versions of the video game," said Patrick Naud, executive producer for James Cameron's Avatar: The Game. "Having the characters from the film voiced by the actors that portrayed them appear in the game adds a level of authenticity you just can't get any other way."
