Jennifer Lawrence and Francis Lawrence Reteaming For The James Cameron-produced Film, 'The Dive'

19 January 2015 12:04 PM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Actress Jennifer Lawrence and Director Francis Lawrence are joining forces again for The Dive, a film that will be produced by James Cameron. Both Lawrences have previously worked together in Catching Fire and Mockinjay, parts 1 & 2, which are part of the popular Hunger Games franchise.

The Dive tells the tragic true story of freedivers and married couple Francisco “Pippin” Ferraras and his wife Audrey Mestre, who competed to dive as deep as possible with a single breath of air. Mestre tragically died while attempting to beat her own record of 557.7 feet. Ferraras paid her a tribute by diving the same depth, an attempt that was filmed by Cameron.

Dana Stevens have penned the most recent draft of the script. Stay tuned for additional details.

The Dive doesn’t have a release date yet.

Jennifer Lawrence and Director Francis Lawrence Are the Latest to Take Over James Cameron’s The Dive

17 January 2015 7:00 AM, PST | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

In the fall of 2003, James Cameron filmed the record-breaking “no limits” free dive of Pipin Ferreras, which was a special event commemorating the death of Ferreras’s wife, Audrey Mestre. A year earlier, she drowned attempting the same feat of reaching a depth of 170 meters (557.7 feet) while holding her breath. During the press conference for the 2003 dive, Cameron confirmed earlier reports from that summer that he would be making a movie about the couple, and it would wind up being based on Ferreras’s 2004 memoir, “The Dive: A Story of Love and Obsession.” More than a decade later, Cameron has been focusing his directorial interests on the Avatar movies, but he’s continued developing the project with other filmmakers coming on board to take the helm. Martin Campbell (Casino Royale) became attached back in 2012, and now Francis Lawrence is the latest substitution, according to The Wrap. He also has an actress joining him for the role »

Jennifer Lawrence Takes ‘The Dive’ For James Cameron

17 January 2015 4:30 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Jennifer Lawrence is reteaming with her Hunger Games director and namesake Francis Lawrence for a tale that may quite literally leave you gasping for breath.

The Dive is a movie version of the life of couple Francisco “Pipin” Ferreras and Audrey Mestre. They submerged themselves for daredevil free-dives to see who could last the longest underwater on one puff of sweet, sweet oxygen. Appropriately enough the producer is James Cameron, who’s no stranger to deep sea antics. The Abyss famously depicted experiments in breathing below the surface, not to mention his fictional and actual exploration of the wreck of the Titanic.

Cameron co-produces with Rae Sanchini via Lightstorm Entertainment, alongside Barry Josephson. The script is by Dana Stevens. Lawrence certainly likes to mix it up a bit as the project likely follows her Magic Mop creator biopic Joy, co-starring Robert De Niro.

Oscar Snub of the Year: No 'Lego Movie' in Animated Feature

15 January 2015 6:56 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

With the possible exception of Ava DuVernay losing out on a Best Direction nomination for "Selma," the most shocking snub of the 2014 Oscar nominations was "The Lego Movie" not picking up a nomination in the Best Animated Feature category. The five movies chosen instead in that category were "Big Hero 6," "The Boxtrolls," "How to Train Your Dragon 2," "Song of the Sea," and "The Tale of Princess Kaguya." The Oscars faked out "Lego" fans with false hope during nominations by revealing Best Original Song category first and nominating the film's standout tune "Everything is Awesome!!!" It would be the film's only nomination. Twitter responded with some fierce dissent, and "Lego" writer/director Phil Lord began the proceedings with polite acceptance: It's okay. Made my own! pic.twitter.com/kgyu1GRHGR — philip lord (@philiplord) January 15, 2015 tbh lego movie probably got snubbed because it stars lego people of color pic.twitter. »
