A huge rumor has just hit the internet originating from our friends at Latino-Review. They claim that the Wachowski siblings are planning a brand new trilogy for The Matrix. If that's true, how freakin' amazing would that be?! According to the site,
"We’ve been told that the Wachowskis have already started the writing process with early treatments and outlines already turned into the studio. No word if they will want to direct but my money says 'Claro Que Si!'...
"The derisive ending of the original Matrix trilogy [included] the bearded Architect suggesting that Neo wasn’t the first 'One,' opening the story world for prequels."
There are obviously so many different directions that they could take this story. I just hope whatever they do is better than what they did with those last two Matrix films. It would make sense that the studio would want to make more of these films and expand the franchise. After all, the original trilogy made $1.632 billion for the studio.
There are no details on what the trilogy will be about, but one of the early outlines was about the birth of the Matrix. There's also no word on if anyone from the original films will be back to reprise their roles.
