The classic film has been remastered in 4K and is being prepped for Blu-ray in the new year.
"We've done a wet-gate 4K scan of the original negative, and it's going to look insanely good. We're going to do an authoring pass in the DI for Blu-ray and HDR at the same time", said Cameron.
'The Abyss' is about a civilian oil rig crew recruited to conduct a search and rescue effort when a nuclear submarine mysteriously sinks. One diver (Ed Harris) soon finds himself on a spectacular odyssey 25,000 feet below the ocean's surface where he confronts a mysterious being that has the power to change the world or destroy it. Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio and Michael Biehn co-star.
