The hopes of major Hollywood studios were dashed today as the Queen Mary II arrived safely in New York after a safe and uneventful maiden voyage.
Hollywood insiders report that millions of dollars had already been spent planning the movie, "The Queen Mary II" a love story beginning in the summer of 1912 shortly after the sinking of the Titanic tracking the lives of two Titanic survivors and their children, one of whom grew up to become captain of the QM2.
Hopes soared on Sunday as heavy seas and winds of up to 70mph hindered the ships passage, but resulted in no disasters of Titanic proportions.
Dirk Wolworth, a reporter for E-Online commented,
"In the movie business, opportunities like this come along very seldom. The film would have effectively been Titanic 2 and would have had enormous box office potential with options of course for a subsequent Raising the Queen Mary II sequel. A lot of dreams have gone down the toilet this morning".
Owners of the QM2, Cunard, refused to comment.
