Hollywood actor Hugo Weaving is set to appear on the big screen with Tom Hanks, Halle Berry and Hugh Grant in the movie Cloud Atlas but he believes that some people will find the movie rather difficult to watch.
Weaving explained to Vulture, “It makes it a hard movie to accept and to watch, because it's out of their experience and therefore it's wrong. So I suspect that will be the main problem for some people - because it's unusual, it's like, 'Ehhh that didn't work for me because I've never seen it before and I wanted it to be like this. Why couldn't they do that?'”
He added, "But what I think is great about it is that it's actually quite revolutionary in its structure. It's quite playful yet it's a very serious film. It manages to incorporate all these elements amazingly well, but I think for some people it will be too much."
Hugo also admitted he was a fan of the book before he even knew about the movie. He continued, I heard they were working on the script, so when Andy (Wachowski) rang and said, ‘There's a script coming for you and these are the roles we want you to play,’ I knew what those roles were. I knew the story and the book. So it was an easy script to read, and a wonderful adaptation of a complex, wonderful novel. I said yes quite quickly.”
Cloud Atlas is set to be released on 26 October in the US and 22 March, 2013 in the UK.
