More Matrix? Bet on it.
 
It’s still not clear what shape the project will take, but sources tell The Hollywood Reporter that Warner Bros. is in the early stages of developing a relaunch of The Matrix, the iconic 1999 sci-fi movie that is considered one of the most original films in cinematic history, with Zak Penn in talks to write a treatment.
 
Sources say there is potential interest in Michael B. Jordan to star, but much must be done before the project is ready to go. 

At this point, the Wachowski siblings, who wrote and directed the original and its two sequels, are not involved and the nature of their potential engagement with a new version has not been determined. Certainly, Warners would want the two filmmakers to give at minimum a blessing to the nascent project. The studio had no comment.

Joel Silver, who produced the original trilogy, is said to have approached Warners about the idea of mining The Matrix for a potential new film. However, Silver sold his interest in all his movies to the studio in 2012 for about $30 million, according to sources. Warners is said to be leery of including him in any meaningful role, as he not only has a reputation for budget-control issues, but apparently has a strained relationship with the Wachowskis. The siblings hold much more meaning for fans than the producer. Silver's reps did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

I guess the part of Neo will be played by either Chris Pine or Ryan Gosling, right?

 

The article implies they're looking at Michael B. Jordan for the lead.

The Matrix is even the wrong title. It should be called The Cloud!

 

 

"Wake up, Neo, The Cloud has you".

"What is The Cloud?".

 

Tom Hardy for Neo, Tom Hiddleston for Agent Smith, and Morgan Freeman for The Architect.

The series didn't exactly end strong.  Shouldn't be rebooted from scratch but rather some type of continuation.  I don't mind them taking another crack at it.  Give someone else a chance at telling a story in this world, maybe they'll fair better than the Wachowskis did with their own material toward the end.

Of course! They used phone booths! Modern audiences have no idea what those are. And the cellphones they used were massive.

 

Ah, The Matrix's equivalents of the archaic computer screens seen in Alien; technology of the time once again the achilles heel of any application for true cinematic 'timelessness'.
