- JLaw signed on to biopic "The Dive", Hunger Games director Francis Lawrence will direct
- James Cameron will produce
- based on true story of, "free-divers Francisco “Pipin” Ferreras and his wife Audrey Mestre, who competed to travel as deeply as possible underwater on a single breath of air. Lawrence will play Mestre."
- *SPOILERS??* Mestre "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"
- Dana Stevens wrote the script
- JLaw will be shooting "Joy" (David O Russell) film next month, and is prepping for X Men: Apocalypse
source: variety, thewrap
the scriptwriter makes me wary... she wrote/adapted some badly received rom/coms (Safe Haven, City of Angels, Life or Something Like It)
