I noted earlier this week, when Japanese man who survived both Hiroshima and Nagasaki atomic bombings, died that James Cameron had journeyed to meet him just last month for a possible film project. Now, amazingly, comes word from Variety that Cameron has bought film rights to upcoming book on the survivors, possibly to direct himself.
Not exactly a commercial, Hollywood subject but one I have covered for, oh, nearly 30 years, including going to Japan to interview dozens of survivors -- and write book with Robert Jay Lifton, Hiroshima in America (see left rail on this blog). Amazing if this goes forward.
