INTERVIEW: Gail Simone Guides 'Blockbuster Update' of Red Sonja, Vampirella and Dejah Thoris
Filming on the Andy Wachowski, Lana Wachowski and Tom Tykwer joint effort known as Cloud Atlas wrapped in December, and the Wachowskis already started casting for their next film Jupiter Ascending. However, there’s still the matter of Cloud Atlas‘ theatrical release. According to Warner Bros. and The Hollywood Reporter, the date now has been set for Oct. 26.
Based on David Mitchell’s book of the same name, the film will jump around in time featuring actors playing different roles in the different eras. Hugh Grant plays six villains, for instance. Grant is joined by an all-star cast that includes Tom Hanks, Halle Berry, Susan Sarandon, Hugo Weaving, Jim Broadbent and Ben Whishaw. The Wachowskis and Tykwer worked on the script together and shot different sections of the film at different times.
