Warner Bros. Eyeing Whichever Pill Reboots ‘The Matrix’ for Them

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.”
