A new film is being made on OceanGate Titan submersible tragedy that happened in 2023. MindRiot Entertainment and producer E Brian Dobbins are behind the movie.
The film is the first of its kind and is based on a real event. Justin MacGregor and Jonathan Keasey are writing the script. MindRiot Entertainment had already made a series called “Salvaged” about OceanGate’s mission director, Kyle Bingham. There was also a documentary called “Titanic Sub: Lost at Sea” shown on Channel 5 shortly after the Titan submersible tragedy.
Jonathan Keasey, who is both a writer and filmmaker, says the film will honor those involved in the submersible tragedy and their families. But it will also talk about the way media works today.
Keasey says that truth is very important, and the world deserves to know the truth all the time. He says life isn’t simple, and there are many nuances.
The Titan submersible went missing while exploring the Titanic wreckage in the Atlantic Ocean. It lost contact with its mother ship just one hour and forty-five minutes into the dive. The five people on board were Hamish Harding, Paul-Henry Nargeolot, Stockton Rush, Shahzada Dawood, and his son Suleman. They were feared dead because the submersible ran out of oxygen.
Four days later, a robot found pieces of the submersible near the original Titanic wreckage. It’s believed that the Titan submersible imploded there. The new movie will tell this story and talk about how the media works today.
Earlier, renowned filmmaker James Cameron, known for his epic works such as “Titanic” and his exploration of the depths of the ocean, recently took to social media to debunk rumors surrounding his involvement in an OceanGate film project. The speculation arose following the tragic incident involving the OceanGate submersible, which claimed the lives of five individuals on board. Cameron, a respected expert in deep-sea exploration, firmly stated that he has no intention of pursuing such a project.
