— Canadian production company Carnival Produce and its partners have struck a deal to produce a movie based on the life of James Cameron, the studio said.
The movie, titled “Cameron,” is set to be released in 2017.
Carnival and Lionsgate, the company behind “Fantastic Four,” will produce the movie and its “cinematic tie-in” in addition to distributing it.
Cameron is best known for his 1982 blockbuster film “Titanic,” which earned $2.5 billion worldwide.
Cary Arroyo, Carnival’s president and chief executive officer, said in a statement Monday that the “cavaliers” will be the “fiercely talented” team behind the movie, which will be produced by Lionsgate.
Arroyos said the studio will have “a strong partnership” with Cameron and “will be a very proud partner.”
Carnivals co-founder and chairman Peter Lonsdale said the film will have a story about “the greatest adventure of the century” that will take place in a future where global warming is taking a toll on the oceans.
The movie will be directed by Mark Millar, who is best-known for directing the hit feature film “The Polar Express.”
Lionsgate said it will release the movie “later this year.”
Lioness and LionsGate have worked together before, producing the “Pirates of the Caribbean” franchise.
