Halle Berry Confirms The Wachowskis' <i>Cloud Atlas</i>

Has Halle Berry revealed the identity of the first movie since Speed Racer from directors the Wachowski brothers? It seems so, and she's also saying that it'll "stretch our brains" more than The Matrix.

The movie in question is Cloud Atlas, an adaptation of the epic history-spanning novel by David Mitchell about six different reincarnations of the same person throughout time. Berry confirmed the project during a promotional appearance for her current movie Frankie and Alice, calling it,

A really interesting movie [that is] sort of [like] what they did for ‘The Matrix,’ they have another really amazing idea that’s sort of gonna stretch our brains even further. And so I’m really excited about that and that’s probably gonna be in the summer. And that’s with Tom Hanks and Natalie Portman.

The Wachowskis have been developing the movie as producers for some time, but whether or not they were going to direct was uncertain; Run Lola Run's Tom Tykwer was, at one point, attached to fill that role, and it's been rumored that he and the brothers will direct different sections of the film. If the movie is to shoot next summer, expect confirmation and more details soon.
