‘Titanic’ rises in 3D release in 2012

Avatar director James Cameron and Fox Studios will be re-releasing his previous record-breaking blockbuster of all-time, Titanic, to celebrate the 100 anniversary of the infamous ship's sail, according to the Los Angeles Times. [ Date correction in headline]

The release of the film is planned to mark the occasion of the RMS Titanic setting sail from England on April 10, 1912.

Despite the controversy over the lack of quality of some 3D conversion, Cameron will turn his 1997 film to 3D.

In March, the director criticized the process, telling industry blog Deadline Hollywood, "Now, you've got people quickly converting movies from 2D to 3D, which is not what we did. They're expecting the same result, when in fact they will probably work against the adoption of 3D because they'll be putting out an inferior product."

Since the director spent years inventing new cameras to shoot Avatar in 3D, he is not likely to do a cheap and easy 3D version of Titanic. He has got two years to perfect it.
