Warner Bros. Is Rebooting The Matrix - We Don't Even Need To Tell You Why This Idea Blows



Matrix fans take a deep breath. Deadline and The Hollywood Reporter are reporting that Warner Bros. is rebooting The Matrix with Michael B. Jordan as Neo.

Although it doesn’t seem so long ago that the Wachowskis’ Matrix films, starring Keanu Reeves and Laurence Fishburne, made waves on screen, it seems a reboot is underway and, according to THR, “is in the early stages”. In the last year we’ve seen and heard rumours of so many reboots, including Duck Tales, The Lion King, Point Break and It. Will the iconic sci-fi action saga be next?

It’s a little hard to accept, but it seems that this project will go ahead without the involvement of the Wachowskis, who wrote and directed the original. It’s also noted that X-Men: The Last Stand author Zak Penn is currently preparing a treatment and there is no confirmation that any of the original cast would return.

The studio has yet to confirm any of the reports officially, but this, of course, has not stopped fans from spinning into a frenzy. It’s not hard to believe that Warner will resurrect the franchise, especially seeing as the original trilogy earned a whopping $1.5 billion worldwide.

During a recent interview, both Keanu Reeves and Laurence Fishbourne expressed their interest in The Matrix 4.

The first Matrix film was released back in 1999 and followed with two successful sequels, The Matrix Reloaded and The Matrix: Revolutions in 2003. The trilogy ended on a bit of a cliffhanger, with many fans pondering on the meaning of the finale. Is Neo dead? Will Neo return? Or is this a completely different story?

If it’s not a reboot but a continuation then it has potential.

Stop them please, The Matrix is one of those movies you leave alone that cow is dry…

When Hollywood shouldn’t white wash a movie they fucking do, when they reboot a movie with a black character where it was previously a white guy, you know Hollywood has become imbeciles. The sudden urge to cast black people instead of white when the previous versions were white people or the books explained they were white is utterly disgusting, and vice versa. They whitewashed Ghost in the Shell when it is clearly a Japanese female protagonist, and now they are blackwashing the Matrix and the new movie The Dark Tower by Stephen King….LEAVE THE MATRIX ALONE! NO ONE WILL BE… Read more »

Andrea Alexia van Tonder I’m so over these reboots. I cannot. I just cannot.

Guest

Wont be supporting this thats for sure. Dark Tower might be the exception as the character has never been on screen even though we all know Roland is white. Edris is a brilliant actor though and even Stephen King said he was blown away by how he played the character of Roland. So for Dark Tower is will chance it but Matrix “Hell No”

Guest

No… just… no……… How about Warner Bros just re-releases the original in cinemas

Guest

Can you repost the hell out of this comment please…..so many movies I’d love to see on the big screen!!!!!! For starters the 1976 version of King Kong with Jeff Bridges!! No cgi bullcrap

Guest

Yes!!!…why mess with perfection!!!

Guest

Seems like a plan

Guest

Batman reboots every half an hour, so why not

Guest

I think people should just relax for a moment, get the feeling they not going to reboot like they did the Ghost busters etc. Oh my God that though gives me shivers. Imagine a gender swap reboot to stick to this new trend. Anyways what I read and what I feel is that they likely to revisit the Matrix universe. If done right can be good. Look at Animatrix short stories, they were awesome. If done right could work.

Nope! Don’t fix what isn’t broken.

Guest

This movie will be a big fail. You can’t remake The Matrix series

Guest

NOT a good idea!!!

Guest

Just like the fantastic 4… Don’t do it… It will flop

Guest

Keanu woke up from our Matrix and studios can t find him to play???

Guest

but why would they do that!? please don’t just don’t!!!

Guest

Ghostbusters and steel magnolias all over again. I hope it’s just a separate plot line and they’re not just making Neo African American just for controversy.

Guest

It would make sense if they do it from a standpoint of the Matrix rebooting ( no pun intended) and the system begins again.

Guest

#LeaveMatrixAlone

Guest

Because we need politically correct versions of all the popular hits, didn’t ya know? Waiting for that African American Terminator: Florida edition…

No, no, and no. And stop changing the races/sexes of characters just for marketing/bs reasons. You want a minority character as the lead, create a new god damn story with them as the lead. Stop changing establishing things.
