cloudatlas210x300David Mitchell’s beloved novel is being adapted by director Tom Tykwer, the man behind Run Lola Run.

An interesting cast is being lined up: Tom Hanks, Halle Berry, James McAvoy, Ian McKellen and Natalie Portman have all been offered roles, according to Production Weekly. This seems remarkably star-studded for early negotiations but we’ll watch over the coming week as these names gradually fall away from the project.

The plot of the books sounds ultimately unfilmable: the story spans about 1000 years and follows six different character’s own stories. Portman has been attached to the project on and off for the past year but now seems a bit more invested in the project.

The Wachowski Bros. are set to produce the project but we’re just hoping that they’re not allowed to touch the script. We don’t want another Matrix 1 and 2.
