Halle Berry offered role of Post-Apocalyptic heroine in Cloud Atlas
Halle Berry is in talks to take on a role in the Wachowski brothers next project Cloud Atlas. The movie is based on the hugely successful dystopian novel of the same name. If you’ve not read the book I highly recommend it, you can grab a copy or read the reviews here
Described as: “An epic story of humankind in which the actions and consequences of our lives impact one another throughout the past, present and future as 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 book contains six loosely interconnected narratives, each influenced by the actions of the past.
The movie will be set over different time periods with different interweaving stories, Berry is set to take on the role of Meronym, the main character in the books post-apocalyptic segment of the story.
Halle Berry won’t be the only A-list star attached to this movie, as Tom Hanks and James McAvoy have also been offered roles in the film. Hanks has been offered the role of Dr. Henry Goose and McAvoy the role of his friend and lawyer Adam Ewing.
It’ll be interesting to see what the Wachowski Brothers will do with a story that is as perplexing as it is brilliant, I’m not quite sure how this will translate on to the big screen, but judging by their previous work I expect it will be a cinematic experience of epic proportions.
