Step 1 would be to remove the plastic panel with the trunk and gas levers and see if the cable let go from the lever end or the latch end. If it's at the lever end you just lucked out, and should be able to grab it with a set of pliers to pop the trunk.

If it broke or came loose at the latch end you've got a bigger problem on your hands...
