Mirren to star in TV drama about Titanic?

London: Dame Helen Mirren is reportedly set to star in a 12-million-pound TV drama about the sinking of the ‘Titanic’.

The ITV1 mini-series, written by Downtown Abbey’s Julian Fellowes, will take fans on a “heart-wrenching journey” to mark 100 years since the liner’s demise, reports a tabloid.

Along with Helen Mirren , 65, who also appeared in a 1979 TV drama called SOS Titanic, Atonement star Romola Garai is said to be in talks for the four-part series.

Filming will start later in the spring and be based in Hungary. It is scheduled for release in April 2012.
