It’s been 20 years since the release of Titanic which launched Kate Winslet and Leonardo DiCaprio into stardom, earning Winslet a Best Actress Oscar nomination.

So it’s very fitting that Winslet and Titanic director James Cameron are teaming up again, this time on the sequel to Cameron’s science fiction Avatar.

It’s not clear how many of the four upcoming films Winslet will appear in, but it’s been confirmed that she will play a character called Ronal in the film due to premiere in 2020.

It’s been rumoured that the two have been in discussion for a follow-up collaboration to Titanic ever since it premiered two decades ago.

Winslet has spoken out multiple times since the film's release, discussing the harrowing elements of shooting Titanic, including a bout of flu she contracted after drifting in cold water for hours to film that iconic end scene in the film.

 “He has a temper like you wouldn't believe. As it was, the actors got off lightly. I think Jim knew he couldn't shout at us the way he did to his crew because our performances would be no good,” Winslet told the Los Angeles Times in 1998, according to the Telegraph. “He’s a really tough nut to crack—there were times I was genuinely frightened of him.” And time, apparently, did little to numb Winslet’s less-than-flattering recollections of shooting the film: During Titanic’s 2012 re-release, she told MTV the theme song made her “feel like throwing up.”

Now that it's been 20 years, they must be ready to try again.
