So David Mitchell is just one of the best authors out there working today, and his novel Cloud Atlas, which deploys six related stories to travel from the 19th century into an insane future dystopia, is definitely my favorite of his work. They’re going to make a movie out of it, and apparently it’s going to star Tom Hanks (okay) and is going to be directed by Andy and Lana Wachowski (WHAT THE FUCK) who you may remember from all that regrettable Matrix business. This is truly an insane nexus of talent, strange ideas and money, and as correspondent Bailey observes, this means it will either be awesome or terrible. #nomiddleground.
