There's more details on the Wachowskis Cobalt Neural 9 and it gets more crazy

09.22.2010

The Wachowskis COBALT NEURAL 9 is a very real thing. But the details almost make it too bizarre to be true.

We know it's a cinema verite-style film set in the future dealing with Iraq, a homosexual romance between two soldiers, and odd cameos. Vulture has new details on the plot and title of the film. I'm going to cut the chase and get right into it since these details are pretty lengthy. Also, this is spoiler heavy. I will give you the warning...

Now.

THERE ARE SPOILERS BELOW. IT'S YOUR FAULT IF YOU READ THEM.

"First, if you don’t understand the title, don’t worry: Our spies who read the screenplay tell us it's gibberish designed to inspire debate as to its meaning; it appears nowhere in the actual script."

"Secondly, part of the film takes place in the future all right — nearly a hundred from now. But its main story is told in Cloverfield-esque flashbacks by digital archeologists sorting through “found footage” from CNN and chips from old digital cameras from the U.S. occupation of Iraq. The heroes are indeed a gay American soldier named (with little irony) "Butch" and an Iraqi soldier turned militant. Butch is endearing, young, and a ravishingly handsome Marine. Our spies tell us that he "just wants to fuck and kill everything" in Iraq — until, that is, he falls in love with the Iraqi."

"The two meet while Butch is on a combat patrol in Iraq during the second Gulf War, and soon enough, the two are engaged in graphically described sex (actual line from the script: "They rut like animals behind this fence") albeit while disguised in burqas. The two soldiers’ relationship blossoms, and Butch begins to get to know his lover's family. But after he inadvertently draws attention to their ancestral home, disaster strikes. This tragedy radicalizes the pair and they become convinced that the only way to rid the world of evil is to kill the architect of the invasion, the then-president of the United States, George W. Bush. And so, during one of the president’s secret sorties to Iraq, they attempt to assassinate him."

It's being said that the Wachowskis are currently working on another project as well, an adaptation of David Mitchell's "Cloud Atlas", with Tom Tykwer (RUN LOLA RUN) scripting. They say that the first one to get financed will be the first one they shoot. Money is on CLOUD ATLAS since it already has major stars interested/attached (Halle Berry, Tom Hanks, James McAvoy, and Natalie Portman). However, ATLAS will have a budget of $80 million while CN9 estimates a budget of $20 million. One rep has already put the can on CN9 saying that it will never get made. But the Wachowskis could very well put their own money on it, therefore letting COBALT NEURAL 9 have it's day.

Extra Tidbit: I'm still sort of stunned. Will we ever see CN9?

This movie won't get made. Two gay soldiers trying to kill the POTUS? Come on, give us aliens or giant robots. Those are more realistic.

They're going to have to do something pretty spectacular to redeem themselves from their recent string of lackluster releases.

A movie about a gay American soldier and a gay Muslim banging each other's bumholes while dressed in burkas?

Finally, something that the right-wing nutters in the East and the West can unite against in one big cluster of nuttiness!

They have one ok movie in Bound and one great movie in The Matrix. After that it has been overindulgent failure. Unfortunately it didn't all fail at the box office. Cause they're still working . . .

Foreshadow Much??

In The Matrix Reloaded, When the Architect remarks: "thus I redesigned it based on your history to more accurately reflect the varying grotesqueries of your nature." look closely at the wall of screens.

When the Architect says "grotesqueries"
...George H.W. Bush AND George W. Bush pop up. Hmmm...

On second thought....

I hope they make this movie! It will undoubtedly be the subject of a future "Awfully Good" column and maybe rid us of the W. siblings once and for all! MUHAHHAHAHA!

this got financing?

This sounds like Bush-bashers slash fic. WTF. That's okay though, I was done with everything Wachowski after Matrix Unloaded and Matrix Regurgitated. They will never get my money again.

Holy fucking shit that was hands down the worst synopsis I've ever read. It sounds like it's Southland Tales bad.

This sounds like

the worst movie of all time, and id feel that way if it was about a heterosexual relationship too...but then again, i guess the plot wouldnt make as much sense. Still, awful

Lost interest already

brokeback mountain in the future.
To me the only good movie they made was the first matrix with part 2 and 3 being mediocre with some very cool scenes and some very unneccessary scenes(( fake cgi fights)
The wachowskis are way overrated.
Maybe they can make a 4th matrix and make it more like the first and really finish the story because the series still have potential.
Everything else not interested.
