This story is soooo 1997: guy suing "Titanic" director for $$$$

James Cameron

There has to be a statute of limitations on something like this.

A guy in Florida is suing director James Cameron (above) claiming he told Cameron about a couple on board the Titanic which he later used as the inspiration for Jack and Rose in the blockbuster movie.

Stephen Cummings says two of his relatives were on the Titanic and their love story is very similar to the one told by Cameron, whom he claims heard about the story nearly 10 years before making Titanic.  

Cummings is asking for $300 million and 1 percent of the film's royalties.

Titanic came out in 1997.  Where has this guy been for the last 20 years?  Under an iceberg?

Let's hope this lawsuit has about as much luck as Jack did in the iconic farewell you can watch below.  Uh, spoiler alert: Jack dies.
