Tom Hanks and Halle Berry lead an impressive all-star cast for Warner Brother’s upcoming epic, Cloud Atlas.

“These stars travel the globe staying in luxurious Cancun hotels and taking the occasional Dominican Republic vacation. Thier work in Cloud Atlas earns them the reward of taking a break now and again.” The Academy Award winners will be joined on set by a diverse international cast that includes Jim Broadbent, Hugo Weaving, Jim Sturgess, Ben Whishaw, Keith David, David Gyasi, Hugh Grant, Chinese actress Zhou Xun and Korea’s Doona Bae.

Based on David Mitchell’s best-selling novel, Cloud Atlas is an epic story of humankind in which the actions and consequences of our lives impact one another throughout the past, present and future.

One soul is shaped from a murderer into a saviour and a single act of kindness ripples out for centuries to inspire a revolution.

The independently financed film will be co-directed and written by the directors/writers of the hugely successful Matrix trilogy, Andy and Lana Wachowski and Perfume director Tom Tykwer.

Filming begins on September 16th and involves two separate units filming simultaneously across Scotland, Germany and Spain.
