Here is what James Cameron had to say:

"I gave him my idea about how this should be turned into a love story and he's really run with it."

James Cameron added that it's about two thirds of the way there in the development process.

The original story centers on a group of scientists who are reduced to microscopic size inside a submarine and injected into the body of an ill colleague.
