Halle Berry On Cloud Atlas Set

Movie Set: Halle Berry as Luisa Rey

David Mitchell’s novel, Cloud Atlas is being filmed with a star-studded cast–Tom Hanks, Halle Berry, Susan Sarandon, and Hugo Weaving (Agent Smith and Elrond). The Wachowski brothers of Matrix fame are doing the directing. So far, the rumor mill says the tab on the move is 150 million dollars. Who would’ve thought Cloud Atlas was filmable. The novel is a literary work of architectural genius. Six stories (or twelve), spanning centuries, are stacked one on top the other in the form of a palindrome. Whether the Wachowskis are right for the movie or not, Cloud Atlas is by itself an ambitious work of fiction destined for an epic fail or success in the box office. The British author of the novel he has said that he is being cautiously optimistic about the outcome of the movie.
