Jennifer Lawrence and James Cameron to team up for "Dive"
Jennifer Lawrence will play real-life diver Audrey Mestre, who competed with her husband Francisco "Pipin" Ferraras to reach the deepest possible depth on one breath of air, in the upcoming film "Dive." She'll be teamed again with "Catching Fire"/"Mockingjay" director Francis Lawrence for the project. James Cameron will produce.
Mestre's story is tragic: She died during an attempt to beat her own record of 557.7 feet. Her husband paid tribute to her memory by attempting the same dive, which James Cameron himself filmed.
J. Michael Straczynski wrote the current iteration of the script. He earned a BAFTA nomination in 2009 for the screenplay to "Changeling."
