Tom Hanks has signed on to star in Cloud Atlas, an adaptation of David Mitchell’s 2004 novel, according to a representative for the Wachowskis, the siblings behind The Matrix series who are set to write and co-direct with Run Lola Run director Tom Tykwer. Mitchell’s trippy book interconnects multiple stories, one set in the South Pacific during the 19th Century, another in Belgium in the 1930s, another in post-apocalyptic 21st century England. According to Deadline, shooting is scheduled to begin in September.
