Tom Hanks has been confirmed to star in the adaptation of Cloud Atlas for directors Andy Wachowski, Lana Wachowski, and Tom Tykwer.

We first reported about Tom Hanks' potential involvement in Cloud Atlas back in June 2010. Actress Halle Berry revealed in November that she was a part of the cast, along with Natalie Portman and Tom Hanks. It seems that Tom Hanks is the only confirmed cast member at this time. Hugo Weaving is also allegedly a part of the cast.

Andy Wachowski, Lana Wachowski, and Tom Tykwer will direct Cloud Atlas from a script they will all co-write. The movie is based on the David Mitchell novel of the same name, which takes a look at how six separate stories and characters are all connected together.
