James Cameron, the director of Titanic, refutes rumors that he will direct a film about the Titan submarine.

James Cameron, the director of Titanic, has denied rumors linking him to a film about the implosion of the Titanic submarine.

According to reports, a streaming network has contacted Mr. Cameron about making a movie about the five men who died last month while the OceanGate submersible was on its mission to investigate the Titanic disaster.

The Hollywood director denied involvement in the film on Saturday, stating, “Usually I don’t respond to objectionable rumors in the media, but I feel compelled to do so now.

I am NOT in negotiations for an OceanGate movie, nor will I ever be.

Cameron, who has visited the renowned ocean liner’s wreckage 33 times, was outspoken last month when the Titan submersible lost contact with tour operator OceanGate Expeditions an hour and 45 minutes into the two-hour descent to the wreckage.

Previously, he told ABC News that he was “struck by the similarity” between the Titan submersible disaster and the Titanic disaster of 1912.

James Cameron, a film director and submersible manufacturer, stated on Thursday that he wished he had raised the alarm earlier about the submersible, citing the risky hull design.

Edward J. Smith, the captain of the Titanic, ordered the ship to sustain a high speed despite iceberg warnings.

Mr. Cameron asserted that both the Titanic and Titan disasters were preceded by ignored warnings, stating, “Here we are again.

“And in the same location. Now, one accident lies adjacent to another wreck for the same damn reason.”

Titan’s wreckage debris was discovered more than four days after communication with the submersible was lost approximately one hour and forty-five minutes into its voyage.

Five main pieces of the submarine were discovered around the Titanic wreckage site, prompting the US Coast Guard to declare that the submarine’s pressure chamber had been destroyed.

British explorer Hamish Harding, father and son Shahzada and Suleman Dawood, OceanGate Expeditions’ chief executive Stockton Rush, and French national Paul-Henri Nargeolet perished aboard the deep-sea vessel.

Later, the submersible’s wreckage was recovered from the ocean floor near the Titanic, and significant pieces of debris were transported to St. John’s, Canada.
