Japan Aftershocks May Stall Cameron’s Avatar Deep-Sea Dive

Japan Aftershocks May Stall Cameron's Avatar Deep-Sea Dive

In the wake of Japan’s 9.0 earthquake, underwater maven James Cameron may have to wait a while before he executes his planned 6.5 mile submersible dive to the bottom of the Mariana Trench off the coast of Japan for the Avatar sequel, reports Slate (via Coming Attractions). Aftershocks are the issue.

Cameron had hoped to check out deep water marine life forms as inspiration for Avatar 2, as well as film down there with 3-D cameras which are under construction in Australia. But this is unlikely to slow down production on the film. And the explorer has already seen more deep ocean life than most humans on the planet (Ghosts of the Abyss).
