Rogue Pictures has teamed up with James Cameron to co-write and produce James Cameron's Sanctum, a live-action drama to be shot next spring in high-definition 3-D.

Variety reports that Gary Johnstone will direct the film revolving around a deep-sea diving team headed by a father and son. When the team heads to uncharted depths, a life-threatening crisis occurs.

Cameron is rewriting the script with John Garvin.

Despite the ambitious technology and undersea storyline, the movie will be budgeted in the low $20 millions. Johnstone has collaborated numerous times with Cameron, sharing directing duties on the TV documentary Expedition: Bismarck.
