Jim Sturgess Joins 'Cloud Atlas'; Star Joins Tom Hanks, Halle Berry And Others In Decade-Spanning Film

Though his last decade-spanning movie was kind of a flop, that's not stopping dreamy Jim Sturgess from participating in another film that quickly flips through time.

In fact, he's upping the ante.

Sturgess is joining the cast of another book adaptation (this time by David Mitchell), "Cloud Atlas," which divides epic tales of underwater adventure and sci-fi dystopias into six centuries.

Here, though, there's a bit more star power than even Miss Hathaway can muster. Sturgess will star alongside Tom Hanks, Hugo Weaving, Ben Whishaw, Halle Berry, Susan Sarandon, Jim Broadbent and Bae Doona.

The actor told Playlist that, despite the undertaking, he's up to the challenge.

“I think it’s going to be bonkers, it’s either going to work or it’s not. I’m really excited to see if we can pull it off..."

Here's hoping!
