Jacques Cousteau 3D Biopic Planned

Jerome Salles (“Largo Witch”) will direct a $37 million 3D biopic of French oceanographer and filmmaker Jacques-Yves Cousteau reports Variety

No-one has yet been cast as Cousteau in what’s being described as an “adventure film featuring many underwater scenes” according to producer Nathalie Gastaldo.

Laurent Turner (“The Inner Circle”) adapted the biography “Capitaine de la Calypso” penned by Cousteau’s colleague of four decades Albert Falco.
