Actor Billy Zane told ITV's Nina Nannar that he was not surprised that Titanic had managed to make a comeback after 15 years. Zane said that director James Cameron had always been a 'visionary' and was planning to convert the film into 3D 'years ago'.
Director James Cameron told ITV News' Nina Nannar that he had wanted to convert Titanic into 3D all the way back in 1997, when the film was originally released. But he began tests to convert the film only when the technology became available in 2005.
Actress Kate Winslet has said that acting in Titanic was pivotal to her career, at the red carpet 3D re-launch of the film. She said the film "opened doors to opportunities that would not have been there".
James Cameron says "I would have made Titanic in 3D in 1997 had the technology existed. I love 3D" he says and "I had always planned to update Titanic". James Cameron then went onto say:
"I showed part of Titanic 3D to Leonardo di Caprio who just laughed out loud at how young he looked!"
Kate Winslet tells me the original Titanic of 1997 simply changed everything for her. She said "I had done a few films, but this made me world famous all of a sudden".
Kate Winslet says people have asked her whether we should be here on this red carpet, but "we should remember the terrible true life events of 100 years ago and should never forget about it".
