To coincide with the twenty year anniversary of the Titanic, director James Cameron announced a one-hour documentary special, Titanic: 20th Anniversary, will be airing on National Geographic.
In a statement to fans, Cameron explained that he will be revisiting the Titanic and assessing the tragic night the ship sunk.
“When I wrote the film, and when I set out to direct it, I wanted every detail to be as accurate as I could make it, and every harrowing moment of the ship’s final hours accounted for,” said Cameron in a statement. “I was creating a living history; I had to get it right out of respect for the many who died and for their legacy. But did I really get it right? Now, with National Geographic and with the latest research, science and technology, I’m going to reassess.”
Due to premiere in December, Cameron also promises an inside look at what it was like making the film which stars Kate Winslet and Leonardo Dicaprio.
Titanic was the highest grossing film of all-time before being surpassed by the James' own Avatar.
