Director James Cameron must have a real fascination for diving. He not only spent his 56th birthday in a Russian deep sea submersible to reach the bottom of Lake Baikal in Siberia, the deepest freshwater lake in the world, but also intends to explore the Mariana Trench, the deepest point of the oceans (10.9km down in the western Pacific), as part of his research for a sequel to Avatar.

And from what I heard it will be fitted with 3D cameras. I wouldn’t be surprised if some of the footage he is going bring back from the Mariana Tench ends up in Avatar 2.
