A View From Cloud Atlas
Shooting for the incredible film adaptation of the science fiction tale, Cloud Atlas, is actually a wrap. Don’t believe us? Well, you may change your tune as soon as you spy with your little eye, a crazy photo of the creative types who are making the movie a reality.
You know the name Wachowski and associate it with the game-changing sci fi neo classic, The Matrix. “Seriously ambitious” and “epic” are the types of words Empire Online used when describing the book and hence the adaptation, too. “Labyrinthine plotting” was another clever turn of phrase for the latest project from Lana and Andy Wachowski who are likely taking a huge risk in making a cinematic version of the David Mitchell story that unfolds spanning different locations and vastly different eras.
In today’s photo you will meet executive producer Uwe Schott, who is in the back row at far left in the nice jeans, followed by the novelist himself, Mr. David Mitchell. He is seated and wearing a light colored shirt. Beside him, in black, is executive producer Philip Lee. The next row of innovators includes producer Stefan Arndt in the glasses, and the central team of director/writers Tom Tykwer, Lana Wachowski and Andy Wachowski. Finall,y to their right, beside the car is producer Grant Hill.
Speaking of the car, can you guess it’s significance. Fans of the novel would have the ability. The photo is littered with symbols from the six wonderfully “interlinking tales” that make up the story. The VW Beetle belongs to courageous journalist Luisa Rey who will be acted by Halle Berry of 1970′s era California. Of course, in the book, the car is orange, not green.
You will also note two Chatham Island stone totems from the Pacific, a piano significant to the young British composure living in 1930′s Belgium, and a futuristic vehicle of some sort belonging to the dystopian vision of Korea in the future. If you look carefully, you’ll even catch the cart that might belong to post-apocalyptic Hawaii. Talk about globally relevant!
The film, starring Hugo Weaving, Halle Berry, Tom Hanks, Hugh Grant and more, is scheduled for a late 2012 premier.
