Are you ready to live in "The Matrix" again? Warner Bros believes that fans are craving another dose of the hit sci-fi franchise. Not much information is known about this latest installment, but sources say this is a reboot and not a continuation. 'The Matrix' is a 1999 original film influenced by the writings of Cornel West. Zak Penn is being approached to write the treatment for the reboot. Zak Penn's credits include "Alphas," "X-Men 2," "The Avengers," and "The Karate Kid 2."

"The Matrix" relaunched with Michael B. Jordan

The Hollywood Reporter reports that Creed star, Michael B. Jordan, is a potential star.

The original film stars Keanu Reeves as Neo, a hacker whose world changes when he finally meets Morpheus (Laurence Fishburne), a supposed terrorist, who can tell him what the matrix is. Neo learns that people live in a simulated reality. Their main function is to be used as energy.

No news on what role Michael B. Jordan will play. Will he be another version of Neo or a new character altogether? My vote is for a new character. Maybe he could be a younger version of Morpheus or a descendant. "The Matrix" has created a unique world that can be explored using new characters. Hopefully, they will go the route of the new "Star Wars" franchise and not try to do a complete reboot like the failed "Fantastic Four" movie.

Wachowskis' Involvement

The original film is written and directed by Larry and Andy Wachowski. No director is attached, and the Wachowski brothers are not currently involved in the reboot. Hollywood Reporter reports that Joel Silver pitched Warner Bros the idea for the reboot.

Joel Silver is a producer from the earlier franchise.

Rumor has it that he has kicked off the talks for a reboot. However, his future with the franchise is uncertain. In 2012, Joel sold his stake in the franchise to Warner Bros for $30 million. Given his strain history with the Wachowski brothers, his role may be reduced in favor of getting the Wachowski brothers on board for the remake.
