A HOLOGRAM FOR THE KING is an upcoming comedy-drama film directed and written by Tom Tykwer (Run Lola Run, Perfume: The Story of a Murderer, Cloud Atlas), based on the 2012 novel of the same name written by Dave Eggers. It stars Tom Hanks, Tom Skerritt, Sarita Choudhury, Alexander Black, and Ben Whishaw.
In the film, cultures collide when an American businessman (Hanks) is sent to Saudi Arabia to close what he hopes will be the deal of a lifetime. Baffled by local customs and stymied by an opaque bureaucracy, he eventually finds his footing with the help of a wise-cracking taxi driver (Black) and a beautiful Saudi doctor (Choudhury).
