That's a good guess Sin. :) Everything about this production seems so secretive and it would be nice if the roles would be announced along with casting news. :?

What I find most surprising about the casting of Tom Cruise, is that there's been no official announcement (in the trades). What I love, is that this production just seems to be getting more and more attention because of the A-List actors involved, which of course, is GREAT for Jim's career! :D

Hi Momoko :) thank you very much for your nice words! :) :)

Prominent cast grows (remembers me on Robert Altman? :) )...Um, I´m waiting on Keanu Reeves, Robert Redford, Brad Pitt... :lol:

Thanks for the Halle Berry news,Sue! Nice to know it seems like Halle has recovered from her injury :) I'm sure CA shooting will get back on the track soon.


As for the Tom Cruise...I'm just surprised by HP news.It's so unexpected :lol: Other than HP,there is no site which reports T・Cruise casting.Maybe it must be secret actually?

Some news about our top-secret-project (TSP) from sz-online... :)

Som shoots in Saxon Switzerland (this has nothing to do with "Switzerland", Sächsische Schweiz is an area in East Germany, near Dresden...)

SZ-ONLINE, Monday 10 October 2011

"Cloud Atlas" turning in Saxon Sitzerland

Pirna / Munich. The Saxon Switzerland near Dresden, is currently playing backdrop to a major international production. Will continue until the end of the week where scenes for the film "Cloud Atlas" by the bestselling novel "Cloud Atlas" by David Mitchell filmed, a spokeswoman for the production said the news agency dpa on Monday in Dresden.

Information about the shot exactly where and who is there for the directors Andy and Larry Wachowski ("The Matrix") and Tom Tykwer ("Perfume") stands in front of the camera, "are not handed over." According to a report of "Bild"-Zeitung, however, belongs to Hollywood star Tom Hanks. Among other things, a quarry near Bad Schandau had been cordoned off.

"Cloud Atlas" is an epic story spanning 500 years. In the center stands a chain reaction of a human in the decision 19 Century to the Pacific Ocean is triggered - with unforeseen consequences. The production is supported by the German Film Fund and the Medienboard Berlin-Brandenburg. Besides Hanks since mid-September is also Halle Berry at various locations for the film before the camera.

Been in the Elbe Sandstone Mountains were already part of the film "Inglourious Basterds" (Quentin Tarantino) and "The Reader" (Stephen Daldry) rotated. (Dpa)

Very cool info Sue! Thanks again for being our eyes and ears in that part of the world. :D

I found this video of Bad Schandau on YouTube. http://youtu.be/CBuwU9sGIZM Narrated by a German child, and obviously a tourist video, it was the best depiction I could find of the town and its surroundings. I personally believe that it could possibly be the location of Chateau Zedelghem in 'Letters from Zedelghem' OR perhaps the rock formations are the "quarry" mentioned in the German news report, and are representative of New Zealand in 'The Pacific Journal of Adam Ewing' (Jim's character) where the Maori people live. :) But of course, this is simply speculation... :? Time will tell I guess. :geek:

New Zealand or/and Zedelghem, that can be possible, Dizzy Lizzy :) :)

Btw, in Zedelghem near Brugge in Belgium are several castles (sorry, can only post the link),

this is called Kasteel Baesveld:

and this small one Fleur de Lys (a Hotel)

http://www.booking.com/hotel/be/fleur-de-lys.de.html?label=gog235jc;sid=36ed76897989b76c745d73462b6002c0

and this Kasteel van Loppem

http://www.kasteelvanloppem.be/

If the speculation ist right, I think they don´t shoot in Zedelghem, because Saxon Switzerland is not so far away from Berlin as Belgium and perhaps they can shoot New Zealand scenes, too...

Report from the BILDzeitung: Tom Hanks visits a Museum in Radebeul near Dresden

google translator

Quote:

Hollywood cinema in Saxony
Tom Hanks visited GDR Museum in Radebeul


By Torsten Pauly

Radebeul / Dresden - Hollywood meets DDR! That was absolutely ready for film: U.S. actor Tom Hanks (55, "Forrest Gump") took a break during the filming of "Cloud Atlas" on Tuesday and visited the GDR Museum in spontaneously Radebeul.

The superstar was all calm and relaxed in a journey through the past.

He enthusiastically took over the museum pieces under the microscope, was done from the original racing the GDR sports legend Täve Schur, the legendary Trabant, a typical East German cabinet wall and the famous single-lens reflex camera from Dresden Pentacon factory.

His interest in the history of the GDR is not new. He was a friend of Dean Reed, U.S. musician († 48), who lived many years in the communist state. Hanks secured the rights for the 2004 film version of Reed's biography.

After about 90 minutes of the museum tour was over.

Hanks bought Saxon, according to newspaper nor a baseball cap with the green traffic light man, with a cup of GDR flag and two bottles of Vita Cola, paid good € 36 and disappeared - unnoticed by most visitors - back to the set to Bad Schandau.

There he stands for the most expensive movie ever to be filmed in Germany, in front of the camera - "Cloud Atlas" (originally "Cloud Atlas").

Location for the novel adaptation, which costs around 70 million euros, including the scenic backdrop for Bad Schandau.

Hanks plays in the film, which is also still shot in Babelsberg, the role of a London physician, Dr. Henry Goose. Hollywood beauty Halle Berry (45) is also one of the party.

Whether YOU are also the times shown in the Saxon public?


Heres the link with a photo from Tom Hanks in the museum

Pirna. The most expensive work of German film of all time is currently being built in the Saxon Switzerland. For the film adaptation of novel "Cloud Atlas" (Cloud Atlas) are among other things, Tom Hanks, Halle Berry, Hugo Weaving, Hugh Grant and Susan Sarandon in front of the camera.

Officially there is no confirmation for the film shoot, nor for the stay of the stars in the bathroom Schandauer Elbresidenz hotel.

How cool Sue! We really appreciate any news on this incredibly secretive project and thank you for finding it. :D Obviously due to their fame, Tom Hanks and Halle Berry are getting the most attention surrounding this project. I'm almost glad that Jim is still somewhat anonymous and flying under the radar with the press and paparazzi in Europe (more privacy for him). And as has been mentioned here previously, for those who don't know, Dr. Henry Goose is from the segment in which we know Jim has the lead (The Pacific Journal of Adam Ewing), so he must be around there someplace too. 8-)

Thanks again for all your help Sue. Hopefully there's a Jim spotting soon! After such a huge PR run for One Day, we're spoiled and truly miss seeing him on a daily basis! :geek:

Thanks so much for all the info of Cloud Atlas,Sue! As Liz saying,CA project is very secretive :? (It's understandable though) So the infos you found keep us really heartened :) We really appreciate it.

Totally agree with you,Liz! I truly believe Jim is the future Oscar winner :) But until Jim will win his first Oscar(I'm sure it's not last) ),I really hope Jim's privacy is protested.And right now I'm sure Jim is enjoying CA shooting very much without any invasion of privacy.

>Hopefully there's a Jim spotting soon! After such a huge PR run for One Day, we're spoiled and truly miss seeing him on a daily basis!

I hope so!And I think you are so right,Liz.I miss Jim badly.But I'm sure when we will see CA's Jim's pictures,we will be really happy about it :) (I'm sure it's like we find the water in the desert ;) )
