The New ‘Matrix’ Film Might Not Be A Reboot After All
  |  @   |  

Over the weekend, the Internet went crazy when word got out that The Matrix was being rebooted. In all fairness, something like this getting rebooted isn’t at all surprising considering studios want to revive certain successful franchises. But for a film to end the way it did, why even bother rebooting it when there is so much more story left to tell? So Zak Penn, the writer hired to write the next (or newest) chapter of The Matrix, took to Twitter to explain what he will be doing for the franchise.

Find out his thoughts on the matter and his “approach” to it below.

‘The Matrix’ Reboot Being Developed By Warner Bros.
  |  @   |  

It’s being reported that Warner Bros. is in the early stages of developing a reboot of the sci-fi classic The Matrix. What exactly this means is unknown at the moment. It could be a new take on the story we’ve already seen unfold in the original trilogy, which consisted of the aforementioned classic original and its not so memorable sequels The Matrix Reloaded and The Matrix Revolutions. Or perhaps it will be a new movie beginning a new story set in the same universe.

WB already has a writer working on the project and a star in mind, too. Zak Penn, whose credits include X-Men 2, The Incredible Hulk, The Avengers, Steven Spielberg’s upcoming Ready Player One, and creating the TV series Alphas, has been hired to write a treatment for the reboot. While Creed and Fruitvale Station star Michael B. Jordan is being looked at as a potential star, though the report states that it’s still very early in the process and there’s a lot of work to do first.

A new video is making the rounds of a high school student making a PowerPoint presentation in which he argues that Disney ripped off The Matrix in making movies such as The Lion King.

You might already be thinking to yourself “That student is an idiot and most definitely failed their project.” And you would be absolutely right, of course, had it been a real student. The video really comes from an Emerson College comedy group called Chocolate Cake City, as I found out after having watched it thinking the whole time it was notable high school cool kid Clid Samby. The skit is actually presented by Pierce Campion.

You can check out the video below.

This is only for the first movie (though the sequels might be mentioned), which is incredibly popular and the narrator of the videos’ all-time favorite, but as they say, no movie is without sin.
