The New 'Matrix' Movie Could Feature Young Morpheus

The New 'Matrix' Movie Could Feature Young Morpheus

The Matrix reboot is reportedly not going to be a remake of the original film – rather, it will expand on the Matrix universe.

Screenwriter Zak Penn, who was reportedly involved in the project, recently took to Twitter to shut down the rumors.

“All I can say at this point is no one could or should REBOOT the Matrix,” he wrote. “People who know Animatrix and the comics understand. Can’t comment yet except to say that the words ‘reboot’ and ‘remake’ were from an article. Let’s stop responding to inaccurate news. If I were going to recast Keanu Reeves, I would cast Keanu Reeves. Do I want to see more stories set in the universe of the matrix? Yes. Because it’s a brilliant idea that generates great stories.”

“WB is not interested in rebooting The Matrix, but rather in exploring expanded universe concepts,” Birth.Movies.Death reported. “And according to two independent sources we’ve spoken with, one idea that’s gained a lot of support is a prequel film starring Michael B. Jordan as a young Morpheus. Our understanding is that a Morpheus film has long been a concept favored by the folks at Warner Bros. The studio has established a writer’s room (a sure-fire sign that WB is gunning for multiple films/franchises), and our further understanding is that this Morpheus idea is one of several being kicked around.”

    I have made 104 thousand dollars in 2016 by doing an on-line job and I was able to do it by wor­king in my own time for 3 or sometimes more hrs on daily basis. I followed a money making model I came across online and I am so amazed that i made such great money. It’s really user-friendly a­­n­­d I’m so blessed that i discovered it.

    I am 100 percent here for an expanded universe. MBJ as a young Morpheus sounds great. Sign the young man, let’s do this.

    So very uninterested in a Matrix Reboot. Come up with something fresh and new Hollywood!! Stop making remakes and reboots, not needed.
