Hanks and Tykwer Projecting Eggers’ <i>A Hologram For the King</i>

Part of the Cloud Atlas team is getting back together.

While Lana and Andy Wachowski moved on to Jupiter Ascending, their co-director Deadline reports that Tom Tykwer and star Tom Hanks have decided to adapt a different book, this time Dave Eggers’ A Hologram for the King. Eggers is best known for A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius as well as starting renowned indie publisher McSweeney’s.

Here’s the book’s synopsis from publisher Random House:

In a rising Saudi Arabian city, far from weary, recession-scarred America, a struggling businessman named Alan Clay pursues a last-ditch attempt to stave off foreclosure, pay his daughter’s college tuition, and finally do something great. In A Hologram for the King, Dave Eggers takes us around the world to show how one man fights to hold himself and his splintering family together.

Hanks is set to star as Clay in a script penned by Tykwer. The Toms have joined forces to produce the film which doesn’t yet have studio backing at this time.
