Jon Landau, producer of the 1997 'Titanic', is "looking forward" to seeing Julian Fellowes' TV interpretation of the epic tale

Jon Landau is "looking forward" to seeing Julian Fellowes' TV interpretation of 'Titanic'.

The producer of the 1997 Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet movie thinks Julian's new approach to the sinking of the infamous ship for ITV1 - which debuted last Sunday (25.03.12) - is "fascinating", as the 'Downton Abbey' creator is a "very talented writer".

He told BANG Showbiz: "I look forward to seeing it, absolutely. I think he [Julian] is a very talented writer; I look forward to seeing what they come up with.

"I understand it's a rational approach to things and I think that's fascinating."

Jon - who will see the movie version of 'Titanic' re-released in a state of the art 3D format on April 6 - explained it doesn't matter how many different versions there are of the epic tale, as 'Titanic' will always be popular with audiences as an "old-fashioned, simple story".

He added: "'Titanic' is an old-fashioned, simple story. It's a love story; we all aspire to find true love in our lives, whatever that means for us.

"We all want that, Jack and Rose found that and they found that across classes, in a class-structured society."

'Titanic 3D' hits cinemas on April 6.
