Last week, Kate Winslet finally spoke the words we’d all been waiting to hear since 1997: Rose
probably definitely could’ve saved Jack at the end of Titanic. While the James Cameron blockbuster has come and gone — much like the main protagonists’ short-lived love affair — history may just be able to rewrite itself come 2018.
Two years from now, a replica of the Titanic is scheduled to set sail. The ship, which is being brought to fruition by Australian tycoon Clive Palmer, is said to look nearly identical to the ill-fated original, which sunk to the bottom of the Atlantic in 1912 after hitting an iceberg.
To keep up with current maritime requirements and trends, Titanic 2.0 will come outfitted with modern-day features, such as a welded, not riveted, hull, as the Belfast Telegraph reports.
“The new Titanic will of course have modern evacuation procedures, satellite controls, digital navigation and radar systems and all those things you’d expect on a 21st century ship,” said James McDonald, the global marketing director of Blue Star Line, Palmer’s company.
Additionally, Titanic II will boast nine floors and 840 cabins, along with Turkish baths, multiple gyms, and a swimming pool. Here’s hoping the updated ship will also include a much happier ending for Rose and Jack. (Alternatively, we could also just wait and see if Bernie Sanders and Larry David will do a Titanic sequel someday.)
