Oscar Watch: Cloud Atlas


The Wachowski siblings have teamed up with Run Lola Run director Tom Tywker to bring us the film adaptation of Cloud Atlas. Starring Tom Hanks and Halle Berry, from the novel by David Mitchell, it may be the most expensive  independent film of all time.

The movie, which also includes Susan Sarandon and Hugh Grant, spans different time zones, historical periods and even calls on the actors to portray characters of multiple ethnic groups.

Best known for their direction of the The Matrix films, the Wachowskis  were recently profiled by The New Yorker magazine.

Cloud Atlas will be released on October 26, 2012.

Have you read the book? Looking forward to the movie?
