Words like "epic" may not be strong enough for this one.
Matrix directors The Wachowskis must be on cloud 9 after putting together such a wonderful team for their upcoming film, Cloud Atlas.
The film is based on David Mitchell's novel about a series of characters that find their destinies intertwined over thousands of years. So intense!
Here's what previous Wachowski collaborator Natalie Portman had to say about the project:
“I don’t know what’s going on with financing. I read it while doing V for Vendetta and I gave it to the Wachowskis and to Tom Tykwer. Now they’re directing it together, the three of them. I will have some acting role in it if it happens, but probably nothing major.”
Other than Natalie Portman, Halle Berry has also confirmed her involvement with the film. Other actors who have been rumored to be attached to Cloud Atlas include Tom Hanks, Ian McKellen, and James McAvoy.
We're pumped to hear about Tom Tykwer's involvement too! Run Lola Run was pretty damn awesome.
