This is an out of nowhere reboot. Apparently, Warner Bros. is in talks to reboot The Matrix and Zak Penn is in line to write the script with Michael B. Jordan eyed to star.
They could go two ways with this. Either Jordan is a young Morpheus in a prequel type movie, or he is going to be the next Neo.
It does seem a bit soon for a reboot, so we’re just going to have to see where they are going with this.
