Tom Hanks, Halle Berry, Natalie Portman wanted for Tykwer’s ‘Cloud Atlas’
HollywoodNews.com: Where has “Run Lola Run” director Tom Tykwer been? Rumor is that he’s been working on an adaptation of David Mitchell’s novel “Cloud Atlas” and that he wants Tom Hanks to star.
According to Empire Online, Tykwer is also courting Halle Berry, Natalie Portman, Ian McKellen and James McAvoy for the project which he hopes to shoot in spring 2011.
Portman is expected to be an easy fetch since she has worked for “Atlas” producers Wachowski Brothers before on “V for Vendetta.”
“Atlas” is set across thousands of years and focuses on six main protagonists. Tykwer describes it as “Melvillean high-seas drama to California noir and dystopian fantasy.”
Tykwer’s previous thriller “The International” starring Clive Owen and Naomi Watts generated $60 million at the worldwide box office.
