The Playlist: Tom Hanks, Halle Berry, James McAvoy, Ian McKellen & Natalie Portman All Offered Roles In Tom Tykwer's 'Cloud Atlas'

David Mitchell's Cloud Atlas to be a movie?
Considering how cinematic his novels can be, it's almost surprising that his work is yet to be adapted for the screen. At least it would be, were it not for the immense scope of many of his books. For instance, "Cloud Atlas," the book he's best known for, has six main characters, and spans thousands of years and several genres, and would seem unfilmable to most.
