A movie about the OceanGate tragedy in the works (without James Cameron involved)

“I don’t usually respond to offensive rumors in the media, but I should do so now. I’m not in talks about a movie OceanGate, nor will I ever be.” That’s how blunt she was James Cameron on Twitter, when only a few weeks had passed since the accident of the Titan. This submersible, chartered by OceanGatehad begun an exploration around the shipwrecked remains of the Titanic which Cameron himself had apparently warned against, obtaining the mechanical speaker as the mothership lost contact with the Titan.

Cameron has not only directed the film Titanic: He is also an expert scuba diver, who has filmed documentaries in the depths and even made similar voyages. When the death of the five crew members was announced, he did not show much surprise, and in the meantime there seemed to be those in Hollywood who wanted to profit from what happened. The submersible was manned by Hamish Harding, Shahzada Dawood with his son Suleman (19 years old), Paul-Henry Nargeolet and the CEO of OceanGate, Stockton Rush. Contact was lost after an hour and 45 minutes, and days later the remains of the implosion were found.

The five crew members had died instantly. This is the story, and the people of MindRiot Entertainment He wants to take it to the movies. According to Varietythis is the small studio that has launched a film about the ill-fated voyage of the Titanplacing the producer in front E.Brian Dobbins. His name is not unknown in the US, as he has been behind the series Black-ish and a horror comedy that has had a lot of recognition this year, The Blackening. Both are satirical comedies about racism, which can be a bit disconcerting considering the material. Is Dobbins planning to make a comedy?

MindRiot Entertainment has commissioned the writing to Justin MacGregor and Jonathan Keasey. It would be the first feature film dedicated to what happened, but not the first audiovisual production. MindRiot itself has produced Salvageda docuseries dedicated to the OceanGate veteran Kyle Binghamwhile in the United Kingdom Channel 5 has broadcast a documentary, Titanic Sub: Lost at Sea. It is assumed that none of these projects have had the mediation of James Cameron.
