No, we're not talking about Titanic II, a totally real straight-to-video sequel to the 1997 mega-ultra-super-blockbuster. And that's why Titanic II is set to take its maiden voyage in 2022.

According to a news from Bloomberg, work has been resumed on the Titanic project by Blue Star Line, the Australian company working on recreating a better and improved version of the ill-fated Titanic with modern safety standards and new technology. When it's completed, it will boast the same layout, as well as the same number of passengers (2,400) and crew (900).

Blue Star Line's chairman, Clive Palmer said, "The ship will follow the original journey, carrying passengers from Southampton to NY, but she will also circumnavigate the globe, inspiring and enchanting people while attracting unrivaled attention, intrigue and mystery in every port she visits".

The original Titanic sank in the North Atlantic Ocean on April 15, 1912, after sideswiping an iceberg while traveling from Southampton to NY.
