'The Matrix' gets reloaded with Warner Bros. reboot

'The Matrix' gets reloaded with Warner Bros. reboot

According to The Hollywood Reporter, a reboot of "The Matrix" is in the early stages of development at Warner Bros.

Sources have revealed that Creed star Michael B Jordan is someone the studio is looking at.

While it is still clearly very early doors, here at T3 Towers we feel a little apprehensive about this reboot.

With the most recent film in the series, 2003's "The Matrix Revolutions", hitting theaters almost 15 years ago, the possible return raises the question if viewers want more of the series.

The original films revolve around a dystopian future where reality is off-kilter for most humans because they dwell in a simulated reality called "the Matrix". And, more importantly, can it do so and deliver an entertaining and fresh approach? I'm sorry but by the time we' gotten around to The Matrix Revolutions we were all a bit tired/confused/petrified that the Matrix is actually a real thing.

Rebooting The Matrix with the same ole trope of a man-any man-leading the charge would do little to excite moviegoers to give it a try. Well, that's still obviously up in the air, but the actor has previously been quoted in saying that he would up for a return to the role of Neo if the Wachowskis were involved.

Last month Keanu Reeves (who plays Neo) told Yahoo Music that he'd only do another Matrix film if the Wachowskis were on board too. Especially "bullet time" effects and the blue and red pills.

But a major element from the reboot is now missing, as the creators of the original films, Lilly and Lana Wachowski, are reportedly not involved.

However, as creators of the franchise, it is speculated that Warner Bros. would at least want to get their blessing before moving forward with the reboot. The Matrix was written and directed by the Wachowski siblings, and produced by Joel Silver. But it does seem as though a fresh take on The Matrix is edging closer. Keanu Reeves has said their involvement is necessary for his participation in any new "Matrix" movie.
