Jennifer Lawrence Confirmed For ‘The Dive’ With James Cameron Producing | Film News
Casting news has arrived for James Cameron‘s real life drama The Dive, years after the film was initially given the green light. Back in 2012, Cameron gave up directing duties in order to focus on producing the flick, that tells the tragic story of free diving couple Francisco ‘Pipin’ Ferraras and his wife Audrey Mestre, who will be played by The Hunger Games star Jennifer Lawrence. The story will focus on the heartbreaking end to Audrey’s life, when the couple were attempting to break a world record.
The Wrap recently reported that Lawrence will portray Audrey “who died during an attempt to beat her own world record of 557.7 feet. Ferraras paid tribute to his late wife by diving to the same depth in an attempt that was filmed by Cameron”. There isn’t much else to report on the subject, other than the fact that J. Straczynski will be rewriting the draft that Laeta Kalogridis (Avatar) conjured up. I can already tell this one is going to be a weeper.
