The Matrix Reboot In The Works!!
Warner Bros. is working on a reboot of the film series The Matrix!
The Matrix is a 1999 science fiction film written and directed by The Wachowskis, starring Keanu Reeves, Laurence Fishburne, Carrie-Anne Moss, Hugo Weaving, and Joe Pantoliano. It depicts a dystopian future in which reality as perceived by most humans is actually a simulated reality called “the Matrix”, created by sentient machines to subdue the human population, while their bodies’ heat and electrical activity are used as an energy source. Computer programmer “Neo” learns this truth and is drawn into a rebellion against the machines, which involves other people who have been freed from the “dream world.”
Reportedly, Warner Bros. has expressed interest in having Creed actor Michael B. Jordan star in the reboot, with Zak Penn in talks to write a treatment. The original film has made nearly $500 million worldwide to date, and spawned two sequels, The Matrix Reloaded and The Matrix Revolutions.
