James Cameron’s a busy little bee isn’t he?

Not content with taking years to make the upcoming Avatar, he also wants to reissue Titanic in 3D.

To render a 2D movie in 3D takes a lot of time and money but we’re pretty sure that Cameron will think it’s pocket change. After all, Titanic is still the highest grossing film of all time.

The re-release may cost a pretty penny but it’s unlikely that Titanic will sink at the box office in its second outing. Cameron’s production company, Lightstorm Entertainment, have apparently been keen to convert films into 3D and think that Titanic will be done in less than a year

Jon Landau, a Lightstorm partner, has said. “I don’t think it’s too far into the future. We’re pretty far down the road.”

This all comes off the back of the recent news that Toy Story 1 and 2 will be re-released in 3D and the growing popularity of the new format.

But will the small number of 3D capable screens make a dent in the Titanic? We doubt it, Leonardo Di Caprio was 23 when he made the movie and to see him again in all his youthful glory will no doubt be a draw to young girls once again.

StumbleUpon It!
