Jennifer Lawrence to star in 'The Dive'

Actress Jennifer Lawrence will soon be working again with her 'Hunger Games' director Francis Lawrence.

The pair will team up for 'The Dive' - the biopic based on the real life story of freediving married couple Francisco "Pipin" Ferreras and Audrey Mestre, reported The Wrap.

James Cameron is slated to produce the 20th Century Fox film after planning to direct himself at one point.

The film will tell the story of how the pair broke records diving without the use of breathing equipment until Mestre lost her life during a 2002 dive.

The film has gone through years of development with 'Casino Royale's Martin Campbell previously attached to direct.

The screenplay was first written by Laeta Kalogridis before a 2012 rewrite from J Michael Straczynski.

Lawrence, 24, is expected to play Mestre but the role of Ferreras is yet to be cast.
