There’s a section that gives a brief description about what happened to the survivors. A few of them were quite prolific, leading to more information being available.

There is tons of stuff to make movies about.
Only 30 people were lost on the Britannic. Of course, she was running empty (i.e. no passengers) when she sunk. If she had been heading the other way, loaded with hospital patients being evacuated back to England, the results would have been catastrophic.

I'd go with the Morro Castle myself. It has it all. High society. Poorer classes. The suspicious death of the captain right before the fire. A big storm. A fire that sweeps the vessel. Allegations that the fire was due to arson. Bravery. Cowardice. It'd make a great movie.

No to Titanic 2 even if from different people's accounts.
same ship, same ending. Kind of like politics and media. Same rants, same opinions.

Titanic 2!

That's pretty funny. Maybe if it is a zombie movie it might work.

Actually with Tarantino recently doing alternate fantasy endings to historical events he could remake it: just missing the iceberg but with Jack fighting one of the German Kaiser's spies on it, then barely scrambling back onto the ship while the spy drifts out to sea on the berg. Then everybody falls in love as the ship steams into NY harbor with fireworks over Lady Liberty while Jack & Rose kiss. I like the zombie idea better.

Bingo. And with a tentpole movie easily being a 2-300 million investment these days, people look after a reasonably certain ROI. Hollywood is like a dancer who talks about artistic expression and avant-garde ballet, yet mysteriously always seem to pay her bills with singles.

Those profits generate the $s that get spread around into more speculative ventures. After all, the less a film's budget the greater then the potential proportional return on the investment.
SO true. Every studio dreams of landing the Paranormal Activity deal.

Are you in the biz? That right there is an elevator pitch if I ever heard one.

Remember, Rose is a totally fictional character, which removes the restraint of the real-life history of Molly Brown and other documented historical people. In the film, we see Rose grow through Jack's advice; from a protected young high society lady living in a birdcage, into an independent woman who wants to ride horses astride, fly an aircraft, "spit like a man," and otherwise experience the life that lies ahead of everybody at that age. As the photos on her nightstand at the end of Titanic demonstrate she did.

I think a biographical film of the character Rose Dawson would be fascinating, and would make a good sequel to the original movie. Only thing is, the subsequent film should not carry Titanic in the title. In other words, no Titanic II: Rose's Boogaloo; but rather something like The Story of Rose Dawson or Rose Dawson: Her Life through Moving Pictures. Make it clear in the marketing that this Rose Dawson is the same as Titanic's Rose Dawson, and it's about her years between the actual sinking and the Titanic movie, and I think you'd have a success.
I would love a movie about Rose's post-Titanic life! The photo montage of her that they scrolled though at the end of Titanic showed that she had a lot of interesting experiences. I'd like to know more about the husband she eventually married and had a family with. I'd like to see the fall of her abusive ex-fiancee when the stock market crashed. I'd like to know how her mother fared after Rose rejected their meal ticket, if she lost her place in society, whether or not she and Rose were estranged or if she dropped the facade of wealth and propriety to have a real relationship with her daughter...

I suppose they could do a prequel. The story of the building of the Titanic, up to the launch with all the hoopla about how safe the ship was. The construction is a story of horrible mistakes and greed. A good writer could do a lot with that.

Or how about a horror movie? The ghosts of the people drowned on Titanic come to the surface and haunt ships and chase sailors around like zombies. The movie could have lots of explosions.

They pretty much killed the idea of a sequel by killing off the main character (the ship)

How about this one. Rose becomes a nurse in WW1 and serves about the hospital ship Britannic. There she meets a wounded young solder whom she recognizes as Jack but he swears he's someone else and never met her. Then the Britannic strikes a mine and sinks but she survives again. Two alternate endings -- the young soldier saves her and he survives for them to get married and live happily ever after (ha ha) or the young soldier saves her but sacrifices his life to do it ... who was he? And for fun, when she's helped out of the lifeboat, we see Jack/soldier reaching out to give her a hand up.
