James Cameron Options “Hiroshima” Story

James Cameron has optioned Charles Pellegrino’s upcoming nonfiction novel “The Last Train From Hiroshima” reports Variety.

The book describes the events and aftermath of two days in August when nuclear devices detonated over Japan changed life on Earth forever. The book uses accounts from survivors and new archaeological evidence to create an illustrated narrative showing exactly what happened in Hiroshima and Nagasaki and why.

Cameron visited Tsutomu Yamaguchi, one of the last survivors of the U.S. bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, during a promo tour in Japan last month. Yamaguchi died this week aged 93.
