Director Martin Campbell Takes on James Cameron’s The Dive

Movie News

After the mega-success of James Cameron’s “Avatar”, it seems Mr. Cameron hasn’t had much time to focus on several of his other projects, considering he also has to now focus on “Avatar 2″, but no matter. While Cameron won’t be directing his next film, “The Dive”, it looks like “Green Lantern” director Martin Campbell will be taking his spot.

Deadline is reporting that 20th Century Fox has Campbell to direct and J. Michael Straczynski (“Changeling”) to write “The Dive”, the true, tragic love story of freediver Francisco “Pipin” Ferraras and his wife Audrey Mestre.

Originally, when Cameron was still attached to the pic, he had rehired Laeta Kalogridis, who wrote the forthcoming “Battle Angel Alita” for the filmmaker, to adapt the story.

Based on true events, the film tells the story of two pre-eminent free-divers who, with but a breath of air in their lungs, plunged to unimaginable depths before swimming back to the surface. Mestre died during an attempt to better her world record to 557.7 feet. From a submersible, Cameron filmed Ferraras as he did a tribute dive in memory of his late wife, plunging to the depth that cost her life.
