The New MATRIX Project Is Now Said To Be A Prequel That Follows A Young Morpheus
Zak Penn (who most recently wrote Ready Player One for Steven Spielberg), the screenwriter attached to the new Matrix project that's in development at Warner Bros. has taken to Twitter to refute reports that he's scripting a reboot, citing the Animatrix and the Matrix comics for clues as to what the film would look to explore. He also candidly calls descriptions of the project as a reboot or remake as inaccurate.
Earlier this week, reports of a Matrix reboot caused a collective groan on the internet but it seems that initial description was off the mark according to the project's screenwriter, Zak Penn.
In addition, Birth Movies Death, is reporting that WB wants to set up a writers room to create a shared cinematic franchise set in the world of the Matrix that features projects set before, during and after the original Matrix trilogy much the same way that Disney and Lucasfilm are piloting the Star Wars franchise. They add that a new Matrix installment is something that's definitely going to happen and that a prequel following a younger Morpheus is but one of several options currently being weighed.
