James Cameron goes from Avatar to Hiroshima (Next film to be about American nuclear attack)
Guardian UK ^ | 1-8-10

When Tsutomu Yamaguchi, a survivor of the 1945 atomic bomb blasts that brought the second world war to an end, died on Monday at the age of 93, the mayor of Nagasaki said that his death marked the loss of "a precious storyteller". Now, however, it appears that Yamaguchi's story may yet reach a whole new audience – courtesy of a big-budget film by Avatar director James Cameron.

Cameron is believed to have met with Yamaguchi on 22 December during a brief promotional trip to Japan. Today, Variety reports that Cameron has bought the film rights to The Last Train to Hiroshima: The Survivors Look Back, a non-fiction book by Charles Pellegrino which is published in the US on 19 January.

Pundits are speculating that the film-maker could be eyeing it as a potential directorial project for himself. The historical subject matter would certainly be a change

Maybe for his next film, he can make a 3d thriller about the Freedom Train, or the Trail of Tears.

Funny, but when I saw Avatar (in 3D) this afternoon, my final thought was...

Wait until the humans nuke your blue punk-asses from orbit.

How about a film that tells the story of the Imperial Japanese Army and their murderous atrocities throughout China, Indo-China and the Phillipines during the 30’s and 40’s?

He could start by collecting his info in Nanjing China...

I heard that at Pearl Harbor, we viciously depleted the ammo stores of MANY Japanese zeros. The USS Arizona is also well-known to have destroyed a number of torpedoes.

Is there no end of treachery of the US military?

How about making a movie about what would’ve happened to America if the Axis would’ve won WWII? Oh, Shindler’s List was already done.

Most Americans remain blissfully unaware of the shoddy, rickety worksmanship of the Bridge over the River Kwai —there was LOTS of under-the-breath swearing against Japanese foremanship.

MAKE THE RECORD CLEAR, CAMERON..!! Make things RIGHT!

Cameron on “The Alamo”: Texan religious extremists with apocalyptic visions burn themselves to death in their compound as the forces of Santa Anna look on outside, bewildered and helpless to render aid.

Or in Harbin where the infamous Unit 731 did human vivisections without anesthetic and other barbarous experiments germ warfare experiments:

Cameron is a hack.

His second wife, Gale Anne Hurd, produced The Terminator, The Abyss, Aliens, and T2.

After their divorce, everything Cameron has touched has sucked. Coincidence? I don’t think so.

I hope Mike from Wisconsin does an epic YouTube critique on Avatar...like Jorge Lucas, Cameron deserves a righteous skewering.
