It’s been a few weeks since we had any news on Cloud Atlas, an adventurous, centuries-spanning adaptation to be directed by The Wachoswkis (Bound, The Matrix, Speed Racer) and Tom Tykwer (Run Lola Run, Perfume: The Story of a Murderer). We heard that Tom Hanks was on board and now we hear that Hugo Weaving and Ben Whishaw have joined the production as well.
Weaving (fresh from peeling his scalp off in Captain America) of course has ample experience of the Wachowskis, across three Matrix films and their work as producers on V for Vendetta. Whishaw meanwhile worked with Tykwer on the afore-mentioned Perfume, so it looks like the directors are bringing the gang back together.
Weaving and Whishaw are each said to be on board in significant roles, with shooting scheduled to begin this coming Autumn and seasoned screen stars Susan Sarandon and Jim Broadbent will be on board too. »
