About the underwater tragedy of the submarine "Titan", which attracted global attention, a film called "Salvaged" will be made. The film comes from producer E. Brian Dobbins, whose last credit was the horror-comedy The Blackening.

He will collaborate with MindRiot Entertainment, the company that is also making a documentary series about Kyle Bingham, the former mission director of OceanGate, the company behind the submarine, reports N1.

"The Titan tragedy is reminiscent of the Challenger space shuttle disaster in 1986: it is a tragedy I will never forget," said Justin McGregor of the company.

The disaster, which killed all five men on board the submarine after the vessel lost contact with the surface and imploded, made international news in June.

The film will reportedly cover the periods before, during and after the five-day search for the submarine," according to Deadline, as reported by the Guardian.

Co-writer Jonathan Kesey said the film will aim to indict "our non-stop, 24/7 media cycle that condemns and destroys the lives of so many people".

He added:

"Only the truth matters. And the world has the right to know the truth, always, and not the bait shoved down our throats by those looking for their five minutes of fame."

Director James Cameron, behind the classic Titanic, was initially rumored to be making a film based on the tragedy, but he later tweeted that he would never be involved and that the very idea was "offensive".
