Right off the heels of the Star Wars franchise reboots, Warner Bros is looking to reboot the iconic 1999 sci-fi thriller The Matrix.
The Avengers writer Zak Penn is in talks to write the treatment and it is not known if the story will rework Neo’s story or create a new story in the Matrix universe. Lana and Lilly Wachowski, the writers and directors of the original film along with the two sequels are not on board as of now. Joel Silver, who produced the original trilogy, came to Warner Bros with the idea of mining another project from the film.
The Matrix, starring Keanu Reeves, Lawrence Fishburne, and Carrie-Ann Moss was a critical and box office success, grossing $460 million worldwide and winning four Academy Awards.
