While COBALT NEURAL 9 waits around, it looks like the Wachowski's and Tom Tykwer (RUN LOLA RUN) will be moving forward with the adaptation of CLOUD ATLAS.

Focus Features International has signed on to handle international sales and distribution of the film overseas. Warner Bros. will take care of distribution in the US. The rights will be sold at the upcoming Cannes Film Festival.

Here's a synopsis of the film courtesy of Deadline:

"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 savior and a single act of kindness ripples out for centuries to inspire a revolution."

This project has been rumored for awhile with the Wachowski's and Tykwer writing and co-directing. Several stars have also been rumored to be attached: Halle Berry, James McAvoy, Ian McKellan, and Natalie Portman. Shooting will start in September.

I really hope that this is a hit for the Wachowski's. Despite all the crud they've produced since The Matrix trilogy, they are a talented couple of directors and producers. Hopefully that talent can shine through in these projects.

TRUST IN THE WACHOWSKIS

looks good... but Colbalt Neural 9 sounds like it could be fucking amazing! Can't wait to see that one finally shape up, though all you homophobes will probably get all squirley and say it sucks.

If done right, then I think they could have something special on their hands.
