The first trailer for the Tom Tykwer/Wachowski’s collabo, Cloud Atlas, just dropped and the streets ain’t ready. Check it. We’re talking T.Hanx, Halle, Hugo Muthaf*(&in’ Weaving, Big Hugh Grant, and Susan “Dat Ass” Sarandon holding it down as multiple roles in six seperate stories spanning thousands of years, that flow together seamlessly to reinforce the central theme of connectivity. Sheee-ittttttttttttttt.

Based on the novel by David Mitchell.

The Wachowskis‘s upcoming Cloud Atlas sounds like one of the biggest and most ambitious movies to be taken on by a major studio. It’s based on a novel by David Mitchell, and will be directed by both the Wachowskis and Tom Tykwer. In case you haven’t read what it’s about, here it is – and try to imagine what this is going to be like onscreen:

“Mitchell’s 2004 novel follows six storylines that include a 19th century American notary, a poor British musician in the 1930s, a journalist in 1970s California, a vanity press publisher in the early 21st century, a rebellious clone in the near future and a primitive Hawaiian tribesman surviving after the apocalypse. Each actor in the film will be playing multiple roles.”

This is either going to be amazing or terrible. Or, you know, somewhere in between. Anyway, Hugo Weaving has signed on, which is continuing his relationship with the Wachowskis through the Matrix trilogy and V for Vendetta. He’s joining Tom Hanks, along with Halle Berry and Ben Whishaw. So be sure to keep them in your thoughts – they definitely have their work cut out for them. (The Hollywood Reporter)

Wow. This project has some serious potential. The men behind The Matrix (Andy and his transexual bro/sis Lana Wachowski) are working with the director of Run Lola Run (Tom Tykwer) to create a film adaptation of Cloud Atlas, a story that tracks the ramifications of one human’s actions on others in the past, present, and future. It’s complicated, but the Wachowskis and Tykwer have excelled in this nebulous, mind-bending arena before, and they’re not alone in this.

They’ll get some help in front of the camera from scrappy young upstart Tom Hanks, who has signed on to star in the long-gestating project. Filming on the project starts in September, though few other details are known. Deadline cracks this egg of knowledge on us, conveying Cloud Atlas is:

An epic story of humankind in which the actions and consequences of our lives impact one another throughout the past, present and future as one soul is shaped from a murderer into a savior and a single act of kindness ripples out for centuries to inspire a revolution.

I’m just gonna trust the team to make it a really good film, because I have no idea what the hell I just read.
