Concept Art and First Still Image from The Wachowskis’ Cloud Atlas

29 December 2011 7:31 AM, PST | Reelzchannel.com | See recent ReelzChannel news »

It's been extremely quiet on the Cloud Atlas front since the sci-fi epic co-written and co-directed by Andy and Lana Wachowski (The Matrix) and German filmmaker Tom Tykwer (Run Lola Run, The International) went into production in Glasgow, Scotland, and Potsdam-Babelsberg, Germany, in September. Other than the "spy" photos of Hugo Weaving and Halle Berry on the set in Glasgow, the only thing we've seen or heard about the movie since production began is the production photo featuring the trio of directors that apparently includes several key props from each of the movie's six interconnected storylines. Now, however, Korean movie site HanCinema has posted online two gorgeous pieces of concept art and a still image from the movie that features South Korean actress Doo-na Bae (The Host) as Sonmi-451, a clone living in dystopian Seoul, Korea, in 2144.

'Cloud Atlas' Concept Art Debuts

27 December 2011 5:35 PM, PST | GetTheBigPicture.net | See recent Get The Big Picture news »

The Wachowskis (The Matrix, V for Vendetta) have proven their most daring movie project yet, Cloud Atlas will certainly be visually stunning.  Thanks to Twitch film we now get an opportunity to see  the concept artwork behind this upcoming star-studded film.  The sci-flick due out in October, 2012 took a little heat and was met with skepticism this summer when it was reported actors like Tom Hanks, Halle Berry, Jim Sturgess, Hugo Weaving and Susan Sarandon would be playing characters of different sexes and races.   »

A View From Cloud Atlas

A View From Cloud Atlas

Shooting for the incredible film adaptation of the science fiction tale, Cloud Atlas, is actually a wrap. Don’t believe us? Well, you may change your tune as soon as you spy with your little eye, a crazy photo of the creative types who are making the movie a reality.

You know the name Wachowski and associate it with the game-changing sci fi neo classic, The Matrix. “Seriously ambitious” and “epic” are the types of words Empire Online used when describing the book and hence the adaptation, too. “Labyrinthine plotting” was another clever turn of phrase for the latest project from Lana and Andy Wachowski who are likely taking a huge risk in making a cinematic version of the David Mitchell story that unfolds spanning different locations and vastly different eras.

In today’s photo you will meet executive producer Uwe Schott, who is in »

The Wachowskis, A Grand Piano, A Vw Beetle & A Hover-Bike Star In First Image From 'Cloud Atlas'

22 December 2011 6:21 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

You can tell that 2012 is going to be a strange sort of year when the boldest, riskiest film set for release stars a brace of A-listers, including the traditionally safe-playing likes of Tom Hanks, Hugh Grant and Halle Berry, and is directed by the pair behind one of the biggest franchises of the last couple of decades. But nothing due in the next twelve months seems quite as bonkers, as potentially brilliant and/or disastrous as "Cloud Atlas," the long-awaited adaptation of David Mitchell's brilliant, acclaimed novel, from the Wachowskis ("The Matrix") and Tom Tykwer ("Perfume," "Run Lola Run"). The book spans thousands of years, from an 18th century Pacific expedition to a post-apocalyptic savage land, taking in a 1970s thriller, a 1930s romance and a comedy of manners in the present day along the way, the script runs close to 250 pages, and the cast, which also includes Jim Sturgess, »

First official image released of the recently wrapped Cloud Atlas

22 December 2011 12:59 AM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Posed like a Christmas card from that family down the street no one really likes to make eye contact with, Empire have got their grubby little mitts on the first official image from the people behind the film adaptation of David Mitchell’s Cloud Atlas.

It all looks rather perplexing.

Now as someone who knows nothing whatsoever about the book  - other than it’s affinity for the eclectic – the image pretty much delivers the bewilderment I expected:

Amongst the mayhem at least the people are easily identifiable. In the middle there’s (from right to left) Tom Twyker, Lana Wachowski and Andy Wachowski and there’s author David Mitchell popping a squat behind them. Everyone else hasn’t merited a mention in any press coverage but I can confirm that they look satisfied that the film has finally wrapped. So that’s nice.

Apparently all of the assorted and »

Reeves will co-star in the picture, which stars Tiger Chen as “a young martial artist whose fighting skills brings him to a realm of vast opportunities, and painful choices.” Chen was a member of the martial arts team in The Matrix, but he probably won’t be borrowing Reeves’ patented “Whoa!” in the new film.

15 December 2011 12:22 AM, PST | NextMovie | See recent NextMovie news »

You know Keanu Reeves knows kung fu. Now, he's going to direct kung fu.

We reported a while back that the "Matrix" star was gearing up to make his directorial debut with "Man of Tai Chi," a martial arts film that Reeves himself describes as having "about 40 minutes of fighting." Now that directorial debut has been officially given the green light, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Universal Wants to Help Keanu Reeves Become a Man of Tai Chi

14 December 2011 10:36 PM, PST | Beyond Hollywood | See recent Beyond Hollywood news »

People like to crap all over Keanu Reeves. I’m not one of them. And while I understand why some of you can’t stand the sight of the poor guy — if you paid money to watch “The Lake House” in a darkened theater, I totally get it — I’m of the belief that his strengths outweigh his weaknesses. Hell, I even think that Reeves makes a damn fine action hero. I double dog dare you to watch “Point Break”, “The Matrix”, and “Speed” without changing your tune. Universal Studios, in association with Village Roadshow Pictures Asia, China Film Group, and Wanda Media, will back Reeves’ long-promised actioner “Man of Tai Chi”, an English/Mandarin language kung fu movie which will serve as his directorial debut. Assisting Johnny Mnemonic in this contemporary martial arts flick is Tiger Chen, one of the many talented individuals who helped make “The Matrix” an action classic. »
