Syndicated columnist and Huffington Post founder Arianna Huffington set Hollywood atwitter yesterday when she sent out a Tweet saying she was headed to Chicago "to take part in the Wachowskis' movie on iraq [sic] from the perspective of the future."

Over the course of the day, she sent out several more updates from the film's set, including photos of herself on a green screen set in futuristic wardrobe and makeup, and a shot of herself with the filmmakers Andy and Lana (formerly Larry) Wachowski, taken upon the shoot's "wrap."

So, what gives? Aside from their roles as producers of 'Ninja Assasin,' the Wachowskis have been pretty quiet lately. Did they
somehow manage to sneak their next film into production without anyone knowing?

The answer seems to be no. According to Chud,
the Wachowskis are shooting test footage for a few days on the RED digital camera. Cinematical points out that the siblings own the rights to the David Mitchell novel 'Cloud Atlas,' a book which spans several centuries -- from the 19th century South Pacific to a distant post-apocalyptic future -- and speculates that this test footage may be related to that project.

Whether the shoot is connected to 'Cloud Atlas' remains to be seen, but the level of buzz generated by Huffington's posts indicates that audiences are anxious for news of the Wachowski siblings' next project -- and that Huffington, should she be up for a career change, has a promising future as a film publicist.
