Hugh Grant boards “Cloud Atlas”


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Hugh Grant is the latest name added to the adaptation of “Cloud Atlas,” which will be co-directed by Tom Tykwer and the Wachowski siblings, Andy and Lana. He’ll join Tom Hanks, Halle Berry, Jim Sturgess, Jim Broadbent, Susan Sarandon and Hugo Weaving in a sprawling story that centers around multiple characters in multiple eras.

Shooting on the adaptation “will take place in Glasgow, Scotland — which recently played host to Brad Pitt starrer ‘World War Z,’ Spain and Germany, with two full units working simultaneously,” THR reports.

Warner Bros. will release the film domestically, while Focus will pick it up globally.

As the trade reports, Grant has been busy testifying against News of the World in the high-profile phone-hacking scandal that plagued Britain and caused the downfall of the Rupert Murdoch-owned news organization. He has been working on and off since 2004, appearing in rom-coms like “Music and Lyrics” and “Did You Hear About the Morgans?”

THR also says “Cloud Atlas” is “one of the biggest projects ever to be produced out of Germany,” having so far received nearly $3 million in production financing from various German film subsidy bodies.
