October 26th will see the big screen adaptation of the Cloud Atlas novel brought together by The Wachowskis and Tom Tykwer.
Details on the movie are slim - I haven't read the novel - but it's described as an epic sci-fi tale that spands a thousand years with the cast portraying numerous characters.
And EW gives us our first look at Tom Hanks, Halle Berry, Ben Whishaw, and Jim Broadbent, with the movie also starring Hugh Grant, Hugo Weaving, James D’Arcy, Jim Sturgess, and Susan Sarandon.
...a sci-fi story of a man (Tom Hanks) who meets an emissary from an advanced civilization (Halle Berry), and a darkly comic yarn about a composer (Jim Broadbent) and his apprentice (Ben Whishaw). “We thought about these individual characters as aspects of larger characters,” Lana Wachowski says. “Their lives are interwoven over one big story that takes place over a thousand years.”
