More Details On Titanic Mini-Series! Helen Mirren Considering Role!

| Filed under: TV NewsHelen Mirren


Wow! Maybe they really are trying to give James Cameron a run for his money!

It was announced yesterday that writer Julian Fellowes was working on a four-hour mini-series based on the 1912 sinking of the Titanic - to air on ABC, the UK's ITV, Canada's Global TV, and Australia's Channel 7, amongst many others - and now, it appears that Helen Mirren and Atonement's Romola Garai are circling roles in the project!

Although no information has been revealed about their potential characters, the drama is being described as a "heart-wrenching journey" and will include "multi-arc action, mystery, and romantic plotlines."

Filming is to begin this spring, with the premiere next year, as to mark the 100-year anniversary of the luxury liner's sinking.

Wowza. We have to admit, if it's done correctly, this could be a truly touching tribute to all those who lost their lives that devastating night.

What do U think?? Is a Titanic mini-series a good idea??

    Four hours does NOT make a mini-series. It makes either a 4 hour special or a 2 part special.

    Helen Mirren starred in the film Caligula, with Malcolm MacDowell. It was the first full length porn film.

    I've never understood the appeal of Cameron's Titanic. I saw it at the theatre and have never watched it again. It was painfully long and not very interesting. So good thing they're going to make it again. If you want guys to watch, then you'll need to toss is some ninjas or semething.
