I have not read the book Cloud Atlas, but from all reports it is a sprawling epic, challenging book. One of those unfilmable books that eventually get turned into a film. With the film being co-directed by the Wachowski brothers, and Tom Tyker we are in for something pretty strange and quite possibly utterly brilliant. But really who knows how it will turn out. Could be Tree of Life level brilliance or Love level nothingness. But with that huge cast of big names, this is probably one worth checking out when the time comes.
