This just in: James Cameron's post-'Avatar' plans

Your movie just made $1 billion. What's next? Last month, "Avatar" director James Cameron traveled to Japan to research a possible film on nuclear weapons. Our Tokyo-based colleague Blaine Harden reports that on Dec. 22, the Oscar winner visited Tsutomu Yamaguchi, an ailing 93-year-old man who survived the U.S. bombings of Nagasaki and Hiroshima. (Yamaguchi was traveling on business in Hiroshima when the first A-bomb exploded on Aug. 6, 1945, leaving him with serious burns, blasted eardrums and temporary blindness; after he returned home to Nagasaki three days later, the second A-bomb destroyed that city.) The director told a Japanese paper he's not certain he'll make a nukes-themed film -- but if he did, it would be "uncompromising."
