I've always maintained Titanic was James Cameron's career acme, and it seems even he can't face doing another 3D movie from scratch, after spending 15 years and over $200m making Avatar.
He's told USA Today that they're "targeting spring of 2012 for the release, which is the 100 year anniversary of the sailing of the ship." Sailing of the ship, and sinking of the ship—don't forget all those dead bodies floating in the water that'll be popping out of cinema screens, larger than life. It'll be a 3D monstermash not seen since My Bloody Valentine 3D! And that's not even before we've seen Jack and Rose steaming up a Ford Model T in the hold, or Jack doing a naked portrait of Rose, or even (heaven help us) Rose as an old woman.
Titanic 3D sounds like my worst nightmare come true. [Business Insider]
