The Titanic Director of the 1997 Titanic Movie romantic disaster film was James Cameron with the Titanic Movie Cast including lead actors,  Leonardo Di Caprio and Kate Winslet

In making Titanic the movie, James Cameron's inspiration for the film was predicated on his fascination with shipwrecks; he wanted to convey the emotional message of the tragedy and felt that a love story interspersed with the human loss would be essential to achieving this. 

Production on the film began in 1995, when Cameron shot footage of the actual Titanic wreck. 

The film was partially funded by Paramount Pictures and 20th Century Fox, and, at the time, was the most expensive film ever made, with an estimated budget of $200 million.

Upon its release on December 19, 1997, the film achieved critical and commercial success. Nominated for fourteen Academy Awards, it won eleven, including the awards for Best Picture and Best Director for James Cameron Titanic.
