LOS ANGELES (AP) — James Cameron will be one of the stars of his next big-screen adventure, a chronicle of the expedition on which he has made record-setting ocean dives.
Cameron said he plans a TV special for National Geographic and a 3-D theatrical release on the Deepsea Challenger missions, which included his seven-mile descent to the ocean’s deepest point in the Mariana Trench in the western Pacific. It was the deepest solo dive ever, surpassing the five-mile descent he made a few weeks earlier.
The film could be ready late this year or early next year, depending on how much additional shooting he and his colleagues need to do, Cameron said in a telephone interview Tuesday night, after the premiere of a 3-D version of his 1997 blockbuster “Titanic,” which sails into theaters next week.
“We’re shooting the whole expedition as a 3-D film,” Cameron said from London, where he had rushed for the “Titanic” screening after completing his dive Monday in the one-man sub Deepsea Challenger, which he helped design.
Much of the design effort focused on building small, lightweight digital 3-D cameras that could withstand ocean pressures of 16,000 pounds a square inch, Cameron said.
