Really high end flatbed scanners will be able to scan your  11 x14 prints in a 
single pass. I believe that he
Scitex Eversmart has a 12" x 17" scanning bed, and has an optical resolution of 
5000 dpi, if not that high,
certainly over 3000 dpi.

Although I think a direct scan of your original film on a very high end scanner 
might give you better
results.  There is a difference of opinion, but either a flatbed or drum 
scanner can give really good results,
your choice might be dictated by the condition (scratches etc.) and tonal range 
of your original film.
