CLOUD ATLAS looking to hit in October 2012

Featuring directors Tom Tykwer and the pair of Wachowski siblings at the film’s helm, CLOUD ATLAS is, simply put, one of the most talked-about projects currently in production. Toss in a cast that includes Tom Hanks, Hugo Weaving, Ben Wishaw, Halle Berry, Susan Sarandon, and Jim Broadbent, and this thing can’t get here quick enough for most cinephiles.

And now, we may know when the hell we’ll actually get to see the damn thing.

Writer David Mitchell, who penned the novel from which the film draws its name and narrative, recently spoke to The Guardian (via The Playlist) and revealed that the film won’t be too much like the book, saying that “They aren’t attempting merely to film the book, which is why many adaptations come to grief – the novel’s already there, so why spend all that effort on an audiobook with visuals?” And the outlet also reported that those very visuals will be on display sometime in October 2012.

Sure, the Wachowskis may not be who they once were, but Tykwer is still very much at the top of his game, and this is just one of many intriguing projects that WB will be showering upon us come 2012. It may not have the buzz something like a DARK KNIGHT RISES has, but it sure sounds like one hell of a film.
