Every once in a while we get a movie that marks the world so indelibly that it can never be touched again. In 1999, The matrix became this movie. Written and directed by Lana and Lilly Wachowski, the sci-fi epic tackled giant and complex themes about the nature of reality, presenting us with an intriguing tale of heroism and self-discovery. And while we thought the property had been buried after the disappointing trilogy up close, Matrix revolutions, back in 2003, there’s been a lot of talk lately about Warner Bros. wanting to revisit it.
Indeed, we’ve heard that the studio is playing with ideas for sequels, prequels, spinoffs, or even a total reboot, and just yesterday the news broke that Michael B. Jordan would be at the forefront. of this new project. But what form will that take and how exactly does WB plan to continue the franchise?
Well, things are still a bit hazy, but sources close to We Got This Covered can confirm that the film will be a prequel, with Jordan playing a young Morpheus. As for the plot, we don’t have any details yet, but the movie will apparently show us how things got as they were in the original trilogy and how The Matrix was born.
Truth be told, such an idea is not a terrible suggestion. After all, The matrix spawned a whole reality filled with resistance societies, captive humans and digital beings. And while we’ve seen a lot of what this intriguing future looks like, going back in time to find out what led to it all and how it happened would be fascinating.
Whichever option they end up choosing, one thing is for sure, it will be quite difficult to create an end product that will appeal to all fans. When it comes to something as iconic and influential as The matrix, Warner Bros. will have to walk very, very carefully, that’s for sure.
