Halle Berry making Wachowskis' Cloud Atlas in 2011

“They have a really amazing idea”

Halle Berry

Halle Berry is in negotiations to join the Wachowski brothers’ next movie project, Cloud Atlas.

She would be added to a fantastic cast list that is reported to also include Tom Hanks and Natalie Portman, as well as the rumoured likes of Ian McKellen and James McAvoy.

“I’m going to do a movie probably in the summer with the Wachowskis,” Halle said at the 42nd NAACP Image Awards. “A really interesting movie [that is] sort of [like] what they did for The Matrix.

“They have another really amazing idea that’s sort of gonna stretch our brains even further. And so I’m really excited about that, and that’s probably gonna be in the summer. And that’s with Tom Hanks and Natalie Portman.”

Cloud Atlas will be an adaptation of David Mitchell’s twisty, surreal novel, written for the screen by Run Lola Run’s Tom Twyker. The story follows the six interconnecting storylines of six different people, including a voyager in 1850, a disinherited composter and a high-powered journalist.
