'Titanic' Going 3D Next Year

20th Century Fox/Paramount Pictures(NEW YORK) -- James Cameron is giving another film the 3D treatment.

The director who pioneered modern 3D filmmaking techniques with his IMAX documentary Ghosts of the Abyss and global blockbuster Avatar, is giving his 1997 Oscar-winning film Titanic a 3D makeover.

The epic romance starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet will be re-released worldwide in 3D on April 6, 2012 -- four days before the 100th anniversary of the Titanic setting sail on the ill-fated maiden voyage that inspired the movie.

In a statement, Cameron said, "There's a whole generation that's never seen Titanic as it was meant to be seen, on the big screen.  And this will be Titanic as you've never seen it before, digitally re-mastered...and painstakingly converted to 3D.  With the emotional power intact and the images more powerful than ever, this will be an epic experience for fans and newcomers alike."
