‘Avatar 2’ Footage Shooting At Bottom of Ocean


James Cameron is looking to go where no director has gone before in order to get footage for ‘Avatar 2’. Cameron looks to go to the bottom of the sea, seven miles below sea level, to shoot sequences at the bottom of the Challenger Deep in the Mariana Trench east of the Philippines. This is the deepest point in the world’s oceans, and only two other people have gone there: explorers Jacques Piccard and Don Walsh.

Cameron has commissioned a bespoke submarine, built of high-tech, man-made composite materials and powered by electric motors, which will be capable of surviving the tremendous pressures at a depth of seven miles. He will go there in the sub to shoot 3D footage to be incorporated into ‘Avatar 2’. Cameron plans for ‘Avatar 2’ to explore the oceans and exotic sea life of the alien world Pandora. The design of the submarine that he will need is not completely clear, but it will likely resemble the $4 million Deep Flight Challenger commissioned by the late American aviator and explorer Steve Fossett in 2007.
