When Landau decided to leave Fox and return to producing, he received offers from three directors to work with him. He decided to make a film with Cameron, which later proved to be ‘Titanic’ (1997).

Jon Landau oversaw the 100-day construction of Fox Baja Studios, a 40-acre seaside property located in Rosarito Beach, Mexico. They had to change the entire production schedule of the film after discovering that it was taking too long to build the film’s major outdoor locations.
