James Cameron plans to film an adaptation of Charles Pellegrino’s The Last Train From Hiroshima: The Survivors Look Back. The work is dedicated to the memory of the survivors of the atomic bombing of the Japanese cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki during World War II. The director spoke about this in a new interview for the Los Angeles Times.
“Our world is more dangerous than we thought. I think a movie about Hiroshima would be more relevant now than ever. It will remind viewers what nuclear weapons can do to other people,” Cameron said.
The director first expressed his desire to make a film based on Pellegrino’s book in 2010. It was then planned that Tsutomu Yamaguchi, the only person known to have witnessed the explosions in both Hiroshima and Nagasaki, would take part in the development of the project. , but, unfortunately, he passed away in the same 2010.
Now Cameron intends to revive the project. He said in an interview that he would take a break before filming “Avatar 4” and spend his spare time shooting a movie about Hiroshima. Other future image details are currently unknown.
Previously, James Cameron became the first director with three films to gross more than $2 billion. Mark managed to get to the new picture “Avatar: The Path of Water.” We talk about it in more detail here.
