What Does This Career Move Mean For Hugo Weaving?

Star of The Matrix and The Lord of the Rings Trilogies, V for Vendetta and Priscilla, Queen of the Desert, Hugo Weaving, has announced that he will play six roles in the upcoming Science Fiction epic, Cloud Atlas.

Blogsite, Slashfilm reports that the film will feature Weaving in as many as six roles in the movie, which is an adaptation of a novel by author, David Mitchell.

Run Lola Run director, Tom Tykwer and The Matrix movie-maker, Andy Wachowski are directing the film. All the major actors, including Tom Cruise and Halle Berry are set to play multiple roles.

The book has multiple plots and characters, which are interconnected. This excites me as now I can see if certain actors can perform multiple roles and use their acting chops.

Hugo Weaving has played wise characters like Elrond in The Lord of the Rings series and V in V for Vendetta. Do you think he will upstage the other stars in Cloud Atlas?
