James Cameron "Dives" Into (Yet) Another New Project

by | February 27, 2006 | Comments

For a guy who likes to line up a whole lot of projects, filmmaker James Cameron sure doesn’t seem to direct very often. Newly added to his stable of impending projects is "The Dive," a fact-based tale about a pair of the world’s finest freedivers.

Says Variety: "Cameron has tapped Laeta Kalogridis, who is co-writing "Battle Angel" with him, to write "The Dive," the true, tragic love story of freediver Francisco "Pipin" Ferraras and his wife Audrey Mestre. He plans to direct the film for 20th Century Fox and Lightstorm Entertainment.

"The Dive" won’t be the next directing effort for Cameron, who hasn’t helmed a feature since the 1997 Oscar-winning "Titanic." Instead, he will next direct a film he’s calling "Project 880," with speculation rife that it is either "Avatar" or "Battle Angel."

"Dive," which would begin after that project, will tell 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."
