Meet Lana Wachowski

09.04.2007
UPDATE - Fox News has confirmed via SPEED RACER producer Joel Silver that there's no truth to the story that Larry Wachowski is now a woman. Still a tripod. Proceed... I'll keep this story short and sweet. Real sweet. Apparently Larry Wachowski of the Wachowski brothers, has fully completed his sex change. What? You didn't know? Check out this Rolling Stone article, called The Mystery of Larry Wachowski, and it will reveal a lot to you about one of the minds behind THE MATRIX.

Rated-M.com is reporting that Larry is officially now Lana, and that some time after their next film SPEED RACER is released, Lana will speak to the press about this procedure, supposedly to NBC's Dateline. Also, it appears that only Andy Wachowski will be doing press for SPEED RACER, since all the kiddies might not know what to make of Lana. The Wachowskis (notice how I no longer can use the term 'brothers' to describe them) are normally very press shy, so if this Dateline thing is true, then it'll be quite fascinating.

Extra Tidbit: I wonder if it ever got awkward on set? I know I'd be a little nervous.

Too bad

It's too bad that this didn't take place before the Matrix sequels. With a guy and girl working on it maybe they could have made the movie "lovin" a bit more believeable between Carrie and Keanu.

that's nice.

Don't think there is anything wrong with what he wants to do with his life. I think as long as he continues to do what he does best, that's all that is important. It's not like he's publicly making an ass of himself like most of the trash that is celebrity out there now. He keeps his life private and when he makes movies, that's what he focuses on. So I don't think it's really important to question his reputation with his personal life.

What Press?

Not sure I buy Andy Wachowski agreeing to do press for Speed Racer. The Bros. have always been press shy and I doubt they'd break that sentiment.

Great News!

This is good news! We needed more female directors in the industry, especially ones that direct big FX movies!

I agree with, Vulpes_vulpes. This will probably overshadow the films true buzz. Instead we'll here about the sex change that went on behind the scenes. I could careless. If you continue to make great movies you can be whateever you want.

He/she will be like a famous, Ed Wood.

Worked on "Matrix Reloaded"

There were whispers and hints even back then... even so, Larry (or "Larry little" as we used to call him in order to recall which was which... guess no one will have THAT problem anymore!) was cool. He and Andy would play basketball with the crew after wrap and what-not.

Whatever makes her happy. The credit will now have to read: A Film By The Wachowski's.

So what?

They ran a good set, and were nice, although they were of few words.

Anyway. Congrats to Lana.

I guess this makes him (or her, can't tell) the first official transsexual director, right?

Congrats, I guess...

Not if Speed Racer fans come out of the woodwork like flies on shit. What will change is the famous "Wachowski Brothers" credit in directing. It used to be so easy for them to just do that for things like "Bound" and "The Matrix." I mean, even the Coen brothers put their first names in the credits, it's kinda what made me feel like I knew them. I never thought I knew the Wachowski brothers, and now I REALLY don't know them.

Good luck with that guys

Come on now... if this is true then The Wachowskis and the studio behind Speed Racer have to be kidding themselves if they think they can keep all that out of the media when the movie hits just by keeping "Lana" out of the press screenings and interviews and such. I see alot of questions like: Why isn't your brother here? Is it cause he is a she-man? The whole issue will be completely unavoidable and the movie will be over shadowed by it.
