After directorship passing back and forth between the two, it looks like the big screen adaptation of sci-fi novel 'Cloud Atlas' will be directed by Tom Tykwerand the Wachowskis.

Sam Rockwell has committed to an undisclosed role in 'Cogan's Trade' alongside Brad Pitt, which will reunited both actors with 'Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford' director Andrew Dominik.
