Asylum Pictures - the studio that brought you Mega Pirhana and Mega Shark vs. Giant Octopus and then wouldn't let you return them - released the poster for their latest classic today, Titanic 2.


On the 100th anniversary of the original voyage, a modern luxury liner christened "Titanic 2," follows the path of its namesake. But when a tsunami hurls an ice berg into the new ship's path, the passengers and crew must fight to avoid a similar fate.

And as the poster warns, lightning is striking twice. Stupid, stupid lighting. That's another Titanic sorta-sequel being made by Megamonolith Pictures - a studio that also enjoys the prefix "mega" - posted this casting call on New York's Craigslist yesterday:

Megamonolith Pictures is holding an open casting call for TITANIC 2: MERMAID SAVIORS, a sequel to the Academy Award-winning 1997 blockbuster TITANIC, on July 1st and 2nd. The film begins moments after the sinking of the Titanic. All who have drowned are brought back to life by a futuristic race of mermaids, called the Mantocks, who welcome the humans to their underwater paradise. Soon after, JACK DAWSON is elected king of the underwater humans. DAWSON requests that all humans be returned above water, a request that is denied by KING MANTROCK. The humans are slowly brainwashed into worshiping their mermaid saviors. Meanwhile, the sunken TITANIC has become a haunted underwater wasteland inhabited by RAGGARO and his band of mermaid pirates. Will the humans ever free themselves from their mermaid slavery? Will the mermaid pirates wage war on Mantock?

All actors seeking consideration must reply to this post with:

1.) A headshot
2.) A few short paragraphs on why they’re qualified for MERMAID SAVIORS.

Actors with mermaid and under water acting experience are highly desirable.

Be on the lookout in 2023 for the unauthorized Avatar sequels. I hear they have werewolves in them!
