Yeah I would think the story is played out. On board ship romance. Ship strikes iceberg and sinks. One lover lives, the other dies.


ETA: Ohhhhh, a redux in more modern times. A 'history' repeats itself thing. Magical. Think it while stray from the original story line? Role reversal maybe for the lovers.

To be fair it says that it's a new ship that follows the same journey.

They're taking a cue from the old seriees "The Love Boat"...the ships that sank every week!

Titanic II...Return if the Bismarck, coming this fall.

Its not a sequel.

The boat in the movie is "Titanic II", so thats the movie title.

Totally gay.

Its already out! Direct to DVD that is. Global warming (plot) must have killed it.





ETA: more good news. It was such a success that there's another in the pipe line.

Shane Van Dyke has confirmed that Asylum is prepping Titanic 3

Titanic II is a 2010 direct-to-DVD disaster written, directed by, and starring Shane Van Dyke.

Hey it appears the director is just following a time proven method to success. Kind of pushing it from the idea of original material though, in an OCD kind of way:

disaster films


Origins
Disaster themes are almost as old as the film medium itself. One of the earliest was Fire! (1901) made by James Williamson of England. The silent film portrayed a burning house and the firemen who arrive to quench the flames and rescue the inhabitants.[2] Origins of the genre can also be found in Night and Ice (1912), about the sinking of the Titanic; Atlantis (1913), also about the Titanic; Noah's Ark (1928), the Biblical story of the great flood; Deluge (1933), about tidal waves devastating New York City; King Kong (1933), with a gigantic gorilla rampaging through New York City; and The Last Days of Pompeii (1935), dealing with the Mount Vesuvius volcanic eruption in 79 AD.[3]

John Ford's The Hurricane (1937) concluded with the striking sequence of a tropical cyclone ripping through a fictional South Pacific island. The drama San Francisco (1936) depicted the historic 1906 San Francisco earthquake, while In Old Chicago (1937) recreated The Great Chicago Fire which burned through the city in 1871.[3] Carol Reed's 1939 film, The Stars Look Down, examines a catastrophe at a coal mine in North-East England.

Inspired by the end of World War II and the beginning of the Atomic Age, Science fiction films of the 1950s, including When Worlds Collide (1953), The War of the Worlds (1953) and Godzilla, King of the Monsters! (1956), routinely used world disasters as plot elements. This trend would continue with The Deadly Mantis (1957), The Day the Earth Caught Fire (1961) and Crack in the World (1965).[4] As in the silent film era, the sinking of the Titanic would continue to be a popular disaster with filmmakers and audiences alike. Clifton Webb and Barbara Stanwyck starred in the 1953 20th Century Fox production Titanic, followed by the highly-regarded British film A Night to Remember in 1958. The British action/adventure film The Last Voyage (1960), while not about the Titanic disaster but a predecessor to The Poseidon Adventure, starred Robert Stack as a man desperately attempting to save his wife (Dorothy Malone) and child trapped in a sinking ocean liner. The film, concluding with the dramatic sinking of the ship, was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Visual Effects.[5][4]

in 1997, James Cameron produced, wrote and directed the most recent version of the epic story, Titanic. The film combined romance with special effects and was a huge success, becoming the highest-grossing film (which it remained for twelve years) with over $1.8 billion worldwide[23], and winning 11 Academy Awards including Best Picture and Best Director[24]

effects of possible global warming force an island of ice in the Arctic to collapse,


Christ... another global warming farce.
Link Posted: 9/13/2010 5:10:38 AM EDT
global warming, tsunami etc....

another way to put more guilt on people inclined to take it on them....
Link Posted: 9/13/2010 5:11:51 AM EDT
Why do I have the feeling that this is going to be just like the Matrix...

A film that should have been left well enough alone after the very first one.

oh dear god. The first one was atrocious enough.
Link Posted: 9/13/2010 6:33:18 AM EDT
The Wikipedia entry says they're working on a 3!

I guess that will take place in April, 2112.

The ship doesn't sink, it just gets taken over by the Solar Federation.

Steamy hot and naked Kate Winslet was the best part.

They did Raise the Titanic in 1980 from a book by Clive Kussler so what more is there to entertain us with that is Titanic related?
