The Wachowskis next sci-fi action flick is Jupiter Ascending

Oct. 20, 2011by: Paul Tassi

Lana and Andy Wachowski are currently wrapping up CLOUD ATLAS, and now we know what they’re planning on doing next.

They’re reportedly heading back to what they’ve done best, and have come up with a new original creation in the form of the sci-fi action flick JUPITER ASCENDING. Outside of that title, almost no details about the project or know, other than it will try to get them back to their MATRIX roots, and production will begin this spring.

They’re currently hunting for an A-list star for the lead, and lord knows they have plenty to choose from in their recent cast of CLOUD ATLAS which stars Tom Hanks, Jim Sturgess, Hugh Grant, Hugo Weaving and Halle Berry. And I haven’t seen Keanu up to a whole lot recently other than eating sandwiches on benches.

Before the announcement of JUPITER ASCENDING, they were shopping around a script about a gay relationship between US soldier and an Iraqi, but it couldn’t find financing. I’m guessing this new film may be a tad more exciting.

Extra Tidbit: As part of a rev share deal, Keanu Reeves reportedly earned close to $200M for starring in THE MATRIX trilogy.

Will be good to see something from them again, it's been a while. I really hope they can recapture some of that magic they once had from The Matrix. They really had huge potential for The Matrix to be the modern Star Wars and just kind of let it slip, so I'd like to see them give it another stab.

Keanu was just in a comedy called Henry's Crime about a bank robbery. Pretty good movie. Go check it out.

But... they are... finished. I think you're mixing up that internet fan rumor from earlier in the year with fact. If they did intend to tack on some superfluous sequels, they would've done so already. In fact, they already made a compromise with Reloaded and REvolutions. They initially envisioned the trilogy as a prequel and sequel, but the studios told them to make the Animatrix then split the sequel in two.

a gay relationship between US soldier and an Iraqi...ACTUALLY does sound exciting, but more exciting if it was a a Sci-Fi-gay relationship between US soldier and an Iraqi

It was a sci-fi flick which was supposed to take place like 100 years in the future. They actually filmed portions of it on their own dime, including scenes with Arianna Huffington and Jesse Ventura with a 3rd eye prosthetic. Guess studios weren't ready for Brokeback Dune.

Really hope a synopsis would be released anytime soon. The title sounds interesting enough to see what goes on.

Yeah I remember that and he also rolled up on a set one day with a truck full of brand-new Harley Davidson motorcycles for each of the stunt crew guys.

He also donated tons of it, at least $80 million, to below the line costume and special effects teams who worked on the Matrix films.

Files this under 'I'll believe it when I see it'. Hopefully that's just a working title since it sounds really generic.

Re: Tidbit

Probably explains why he dresses like a bum and chills on benches eating sandwiches. He isn't Sad Keanu, he's "I have fuck you money so I'm gonna sit on this goddamn bench and eat this delicious fucking sandwich with any emotional range I can muster on my face at my own damn convenience so fuck you" Keanu.
