According to The Hollywood Reporter, Warner Bros. has started work on in some way rebooting The Matrix, the 1999 film that first warned us that a feeling of déjà vu would accompany the cruel meddling of a bunch of guys in suits.
As of this point, Matrix masterminds the Wachowskis are apparently not even involved in this project. The studio currently just has a treatment being written by Zak Penn, the writer whose experience in black leather-encased action is limited to the second and third X-Men films. But, while no other talent is attached, Warner does preemptively have a star in mind: Michael B. Jordan. We’ll have to wait and see if that means the Creed star has been typecast as “son of enjoyable supporting character from wildly popular franchise telling a white underdog story across increasingly poor films.”
