James Cameron’s “Hiroshima” Vaporised?

Publication of Charles Pellegrino’s non-fiction tome “The Last Train from Hiroshima”, which had been optioned for a possible film by “Avatar” director James Cameron, has been halted over concerns of its accuracy reports The Associated Press.

Publisher Henry Holt and Company said in a statement yesterday that Pellegrino wasn’t able to answer questions on the text including whether two men mentioned within it even existed.

The author has come under scrutiny which complicates things for Cameron as Pellegrino served as an advisor on “Avatar”. The ‘Hiroshima’ film deal now looks to be on shaky ground.
