What up, Wachowskis?

12.07.2009

The webs were aflutter earlier today with rumors that the Wachowski siblings were secretly shooting their next movie. Any truth? Maybe sorta kinda.

The buzz began when author / columnist / Post-owner Arianna Huffington tweeted pics (like the one here) of herself "from the set of the Wachowskis' futuristic movie", alternately noting it involved Iraq "from the perspective of the future", and is apparently set 90 years from now.

This prompted slashfilm to theorize that the MATRIX-makers were already underway on some kind of sci-fi war movie, but CHUD refuted the notion, claiming that it was merely test footage using green screen (obviously) and digital cameras. 

And then Cinematical pondered whether it had something to do with CLOUD ATLAS, a Wachowskis-produced adaptation of the award-winning David Mitchell book that's being directed by Tom Tykwer (THE INTERNATIONAL, RUN LOLA RUN). 

So basically, nobody knows for sure what this is at the moment... except intriguing. More as we hear!

Extra Tidbit: Larry Wachowski is indeed now Lana.

They're adapting Cloud Atlas?

Wow, I was reading Ghostwritten yesterday and thinking about how to adapt it. Cloud Atlas is even tougher! Verrry interested to see how they go about tackling that.

I'm confused

What is so freakish about the Wachowski's? They haven't really made a great movie since the Matrix. I mean I guess Speed Racer was good. Still I don't see anything "freakish".

Whachowski Sisters?

The whole sex change thing really caught me by surprise, I never would have thought...
since one of them is a girl now does that mean they'll be known as the Wachowski sisters from now on?

Why would they both be sisters if one is trans-gender? What other really old news are you out of the loop on.

a future war in iraq would sound like a cool movie idea that will again end up in the toilet because they waste big and refreshing ideas on weak scripts.

I concur. Speed Racer was very underrated. It's kind of fun to not know anything about a project. Simon Pegg was pissed about how a characters name ended up on IMDB and ruined the joke. "Nothing's secret anymore." I walked into The Matrix not having a clue what I would expect and the movie was better for it.

commenting on your profile pic. I'd love to see a prequal to Escape From New York. Where they show Snakes origin, and show what happened to Fresno Bob! That would be awesome!
