James Cameron Movie on Japan Atom Bombings in the Idea Mill

Tsutomu Yamaguchi (left), the only person officially recognized as the only survivor of the two atomic bombs that were dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki in Japan was visited by film director James Cameron in the hospital before he died. He was 93. Yamaguchi was on a business trip on August 6, 1945, when the first bomb was dropped in Hiroshima. He suffered serious burns on his body. He went home to his hometown in Nagasaki and the next bomb was dropped there three days after Hiroshima. The city government of Nagasaki mourned him as their precious storyteller.

Cameron was reportedly considering making a movie about the bomb droppings. If we consider Cameron's style, the movie's story may revolve around common people in a tense drama that takes place amidst the bigger historical backdrop of the Second World War. Unlike in the Titanic tragedy where people knew what was coming, in this movie, the event would literally be portrayed to drop like a bomb and tragically change the world and people's lives as it did in history. On the other hand, instead of a period drama, the movie may be a documentary.

The movie may involve Yamaguchi's tale. If it goes into production, we may have a bomb disaster movie like Titanic that's unlikely to bomb. It could be another moneymaker and success story for Cameron, who's worked on film projects about World War 2 before like the Discovery Channel Quest documentary special on the sinking of the German DKM Bismarck.
