The last time Tom Hanks teamed up with Tom Tykwer, it was alongside The Wachowskis for an adaptation of David Mitchell's acclaimed "Cloud Atlas." Well, Hanks clearly liked working with Tykwer, and now the fruits of their second collaboration, also based on a well-received novel, are finally seeing the light.

THR has debuted the first image from "A Hologram For The King," based on the book by Dave Eggers. Hanks is the biggest name in the cast that features Sarita Choudhury, Omar Elba, Tracey Fairaway, David Menkin and Tom Skerritt, with the dramedy following a desperate American salesman who heads to Saudi Arabia to land a lucrative IT contract. Presumably cultures will clash, and this seemingly fish-out-of-water tale looks perfect for Hanks' sensibility so we're curious to see how it turns out.

No word yet on release dates or anything like that, so this image will have to suffice for now.
