The Matrix Is Getting A Reboot
And you need to see who's lined up to star...
Dig out your trenchcoat and wraparound shades because Warner Bros. is set to feed us all a red pill and take us further down the rabbit hole… that’s right, they’re going to reboot The Matrix!
As you might expect, details are extremely hazy at this stage, but we do know that occasional X-Men screenwriter Zak Penn has been tasked with writing an early screenplay. Just what story he’ll be telling remains to be seen, although early rumblings suggest some sort of Star Wars Episode VII-esque deepening of the story, rather than a straight-up remake.
At this point, no comment has been made by original directors, the Wachowski siblings, although the studio is thought to be keen to get their approval, if not their direct involvement. As for Keanu Reeves? Well, he’s said he’d be open to the idea, but only if the Wachowskis were on board to write and direct.
Assuming Keanu isn’t involved, Warner are thought to be eyeing Michael B Jordan to head up the project, which we can probably all agree would be excellent. Morpheus prequel, anyone? See you in the ticket line….
