Well it's about time we got a different perspective on this event!
All we ever see is the ship going down!
A 12-part, $28 million British mini-series is currently in development called Titanic: Blood & Steel, and unlike its many predecessors, will chronicle the famed ship's actual construction, which took place in Belfast, Ireland in the early 1900s. Although it has yet to pick up U.S. distribution, it's garnering quite the cast, which includes Kevin Zegers, Chris Noth, Derek Joacobi, and Neve Campbell!
Apparently, Zegers will portray a meallurgist who discovers some serious flaws in the quality of the metal being used to build the Titanic, and Noth will play financier J.P. Morgan. Meanwhile, Jacobi will take the role of Lord William Pirrie, the chairman of the the company behind the Titanic, and Campbell will be a reporter covering its maiden voyage!
And like we said, given the amount of projects out there about the ship, we're excited to see a lesser known aspect of its tragic story!
