Last week a rumor from a less-than-reputable site ignited the internet with the rumor that Warner Brothers wanted to start up a new Matrix trilogy. Part of the rumor says the Wachowski siblings have already begun the writing process, and that right there is a huge red flag that this whole thing is made up BS just to get website hits from uninformed people.
Back when Cloud Atlas was being released, the Wachowskis made multiple comments to international press that really spells out their hatred for sequels and reboots. Here are the comments via Google Translate.
LW: Yes, today, movies are reduced to simple products. Everyone wonders how such a project cost, how he reported during his first weekend. It is a negation of art, soul. If we made this analogy with the Exchange, it is because the studios are now managed by huge corporations. They make decisions based on that economic models. That is why we only see JAMES BOND 12 19 TWILIGHT, THE HOBBIT or 6 SPIDER-MAN 24 …
LW: rebooted, yes! All because the public and majors prefer products originality.
LANA W.: Of course we want our investors to pay back the money, otherwise there is a day at the movies, only the 27 “Twilight” series and the 99th Bond film.
Andy Wachowski: In Hollywood products are made. Not more. And repeating the same products. Exactly which they believe that the public wants it. How boring.
Lana Wachowski: James Bond is such an example. Always the same, with minor changes. And if even a few more changes to come, all the talk already of restart. Oh look, the new Q, how funny!
Lana Wachowski: But it’s just the eternal recurrence of the same thing. Take the “Twilight” series. Now comes another “The Hobbit” after the “Lord of the Rings.” Batman, Spiderman … In all this, it’s all about products, not about content or even visions.
Based on these comments, if you think they’re writing three more Matrix movies then I have an already-built Millennium Falcon set to sell you.
