James Cameron heading back to the Titanic for 2012 TV special

By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: “Titanic” will rise again next year, in various formats.

You probably already know that James Cameron has been hard at work on a 3D conversion for his Oscar-winning epic, which followed young lovers Jack (Leonardo DiCaprio) and Rose (Kate Winslet) aboard the ill-fated ship. The 3D version of Cameron’s “Titanic” reaches theaters on April 6, 2012.

But that’s not Cameron’s only “Titanic” trip planned for next year. THR reports that the Oscar winner will host a two-hour TV special with National Geographic that returns to the bottom of the sea for the director’s final words on the sunken oceanliner.

“He is a freak about the Titanic,” says Michael Cascio, executive VP of programming for National Geographic Channel. “He is obsessed with trying to find out why exactly it sank. He’s actually comparing his research with his film to see what we’ve learned since then and what can advance the story.”

Cascio also said that some information obtained in filming this special could change people’s minds as to why the seemingly “unsinkable” ship actually sank.

“Titanic: Final Word with James Cameron” will air on National Geographic Channel in April, to coincide with Cameron’s 3D release as well as the 100th anniversary of the ship’s tragic end.
