Wow! It takes a lot of balls to try to tackle this topic, especially after what James Cameron managed to produce!
Academy Award winning screenwriter Julian Fellowes has reportedly written a four-hour TV mini-series based on the sinking of the RMS Titanic.
Set to air on ABC, Global TV, and ITV, Titanic will focus on the lives of different characters in various social standing as they attempt to survive the iconic ship's sinking on that fateful day in 1912.
Quinn Taylor, SVP movies miniseries and acquisitions for ABC Network, says:
"The Titanic retained a powerful hold on people around the world for almost 100 years, and this new miniseries will offer a compelling take on this epic, tragic story. We look forward to bringing this remarkable series to our viewers."
Agreed! It really is such an unbelievable and heartbreaking event in our history, and we're sure that Fellowes' take will be a fascinating one.
However, we do have to wonder if people will be disappointed with the results, when compared to James Cameron's Titanic and the amount of money, construction, and special effects the director put into re-building the ship and its actual likeness - not to mention the disaster scenes at the end!
We doubt that a mini-series will have that kind of production value!
But who knows??
What do U think?? Will U tune into the Titanic mini-series??
