Tom Hanks, the Wachowskis and Tom Tykwer? 'Forrest Gump' in 'The Matrix' by way of 'Run Lola Run'?

That just might be the case, since Hanks is set to star in a new movie written and directed by 'The Matrix' trilogy's Andy and Lana Wachowski and 'Lola's Tykwer. According to TheWrap, the film, 'Cloud Atlas,' is based on the bestselling novel by Davis Mitchell, and is "an epic story of humankind in which the actions and consequences of our lives impact one another throughout the past, present and future as one soul is shaped from a murderer into a savior and a single act of kindness ripples out for centuries to inspire a revolution."

'Cloud Atlas,' which begins in the 1900s and moves into the future, is in pre-production and will begin filming in September.
