Well now, this is getting interesting. The Wachowski siblings, responsible for the like-it-or-not Matrix trilogy, and Tom Tykwer have announced their epic adaptation of Cloud Atlas will have a $100-million budget and a cast that now includes Susan Sarandon and Jim Broadbent. They are joined by the previously announced Tom Hanks, Halle Berry, and Hugo Weaving. Sounds awesome, right? The story follows six time-lines through history that are all connected and if you want more go read the book. I’m almost willing to forget and forgive the Wachowski’s for most of the second and third Matrix movies (and all of Speed Racer) in anticipation for this one, but mostly because I imagine it to be nothing but Tom Hanks recreating his favorite scenes from The Matrix.
