The recent Titan sub-tragedy caught everyone’s attention. Five people on board a Titan sub to explore the Titanic wreckage were presumed dead. After the disaster, James Camero commented on it. As per new reports, the acclaimed filmmaker is ready to make a drama series based on the tragedy.
The Sun reported a streaming service got in touch with the renowned director, who also happens to be an avid diver and has been down to the fatal cruise ship’s wreck 30 times.

With reports of the filmmaker on board to make the show, Matt Damon is in talks to head the show. The actor previously rejected the offer of Cameron to be part of Avatar because of scheduling conflicts. It might be Damon’s second chance to be directed by the Oscar-winning director

The Avatar director was the brain behind the 1997 motion picture Titanic. The film had a successful run. It gave a human touch to the tragedy. The director would be a perfect choice to do the same for the lost souls of the Titan expedition.
The outlet said,

“The Titan disaster is already being looked at as a major series for one of the world’s biggest streamers — and James is first choice for director. It is a subject close to his heart.”

The source added,

“He told the story of the Titanic so compassionately it feels like a natural step for him to take this on. Retracing the steps of those on board the Titan is a massive undertaking but there would be a lot of time, money and resources dedicated to it.”

Along with Damon star of the romcom The Big Sick, Kumail Nanjiani, may also be featured in the yet-to-be-confirmed project.

Since he first went scuba diving as a teenager in Canada, James Cameron has been a fan of water exploration. His love for the deep sea encouraged him to direct films like The Abyss and Titanic. The interesting fact is the filmmaker agreed to write a movie on the Titanic because he wanted to study the ship’s ruins.

Cameron is a deep-sea exploration expert who has made 33 dives to the Titanic wreck. He became the first person to complete the journey alone in 2012 when he also arrived at the Challenger Deep, the Mariana Trench’s deepest point, and spent more than three hours exploring the ocean floor. He has used a portion of his enormous $700 million net worth for dives in the deep sea.

The director even commented on the Titan sub-tragedy when the US Coast Guard announced that the vessel they lost contact with had suffered a catastrophic implosion and that all five passengers onboard were dead.
