James Cameron's film about Hiroshima has been put on hold after the book's release came to a standstill.

The Oscar-nominated Avatar director was due to helm the picture but things are up in the air after author Charles Pellegrino, who penned The Last Train From Hiroshima about the Japanese atomic bombing in 1945, "was not able to answer" concerns about his book, reports Variety.

This led publishers Henry Holt and Company to issue a statement stopping production of the book, saying: "It is with deep regret that Henry Holt and Company announces that we will not print, correct or ship copies of Charles Pellegrino's The Last Train From Hiroshima."

James has worked with the writer previously on Avatar and written introductions for two of his books.

Doubts were raised about the book with regard to the existence of two men mentioned in the book, and over the author's past.
