The director, an ocean enthusiast, reveals that he will be going 5,200 feet below Russia's Lake Baikal, the world's largest and oldest lake. He says his plans are definite "unless it's bad weather, in which case I'll be getting drunk with the Russian crew in the port."

Cameron is currently building a submarine in Australia that will reportedly be able to take him 36,000 feet below the ocean's surface. He is also working on an underwater 3-D camera that he says may be used for the Avatar sequel.
