Director Martin Campbell has taken the reigns from James Cameron on 20th Century Fox tragic love story, The Dive. J. Michael Straczynski is writing the script for the studio.

The project is a tragic love story of freediver Francisco Ferraras and his wife Audrey Mestre. It follows two pre-eminent free-divers who, with but a breath of air in their lungs, plunged to unimaginable depths before swimming back to the surface. Audrey Mestre died during an attempt to better her world record to 557.7 feet.

The director most recently worked on Green Lantern and Edge of Darkness. James Cameron is producing the film with his Lightstorm team.

This project is still in early development.
