Titanic to return to the big screen in 3D

2010-10-02 10:00

Los Angeles – James Cameron’s blockbuster Titanic, the second-biggest earner in film history, will be released in 3D in 2012, a year that will also see a 3D re-release of Star Wars, The Hollywood Reporter said.

The Hollywood Reporter said yesterday that film studios Paramount Pictures, 20th Century Fox and Lightstorm Entertainment were planning on re-releasing Titanic in April 2012, 100 years after the mammoth passenger steamship plunged into the icy waters of the Atlantic Ocean.

That could put it out in theatres around the same time George Lucas’s Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace is due out in 3D, the first in a planned series to do so.

The company in charge of converting Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet’s tragic love story into 3D has not yet been chosen, but the cost is estimated at $10 million to $15 million, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Plans to convert 2D films to 3D have come under heavy criticism in Hollywood after the 3D release of Clash of the Titans was a major flop.
