Acclaimed filmmaker James Cameron has confirmed that he’ll bring the 3D version of Titanic on the big screen by 2012.

“We’re targeting spring of 2012 for the release (of a 3D version of Titanic), which is the 100th anniversary of the sailing of the ship,” contactmusic.com quoted him as saying.

The movie was released in 1997.

Cameron also revealed that he would put his latest epic film Avatar back into movie theatres by releasing a director’s cut later this year.

“The wild card is that we might be re-releasing the movie this fall. It’s kind of gotten stomped out (in theatres since the release) of Alice in Wonderland. The word we’re getting back from exhibitors is we probably left a couple of hundred million dollars on the table as a result,” he said.

“The question is (that) the appetite (is) still going to be there after the summer glut of movies. We’re going to assess that. We’re talking about may be adding in additional footage and doing something creative,” he added.
