Oscar winner Jennifer Lawrence and her “The Hunger Games: Mockingjay” director Francis Lawrence are re-teaming for the James Cameron-produced true story tale “The Dive” for Lightstorm Entertainment.
The tragic true story tale deals with Francisco ‘Pipin’ Ferraras and Audrey Mestre, a married couple who competed to travel as deep as possible underwater on a single breath of air.
Lawrence will play Mestre, 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.
Rae Sanchini and Barry Josephson will also produce.
