Ever since the success of ‘The Matrix’ trilogy, the mention of the name Wachowski can still bring anticipation to movie goers as two producers who can bring excitement to the screen. Since the trilogy, the siblings have produced ‘V for Vendetta’, ‘Ninja Assassins’ and ‘Speed Racer’ (don’t hate, but I actually liked ‘Speed Racer’) and is currently directing ‘Cloud Atlas.’ Now it’s being reported that Andy and Lana Wachowski will be teaming up with Warner Bros. for ‘Jupiter Ascending.’
‘Jupiter Ascending’ is an original idea by the Wachowski siblings who have not produced or directed an action sci-fi film since ‘The Matrix’ trilogy. Since they are the same duo that created ‘The Matrix’, there is quite a buzz going throughout the industry regarding this next film of theirs. Warner Bros. is doing their upmost to keep the script and any additional information about ‘Jupiter Ascending’ under tight security and the only reason anyone knows about the film is because they are currently pitching the project to A-list actors who they hope will lead the cast. Warner Bros. currently has ‘Jupiter Ascending’ in development with a production start date in the early spring of 2012.
Other than that, not much is known about the movie. But if their concept for ‘The Matrix’ is anything to go by, then we are in for a real original sci-fi treat. For someone who is a little tired of reading about remakes and reboots, the news of a movie with originality is enough to put some faith back in the world of movie making.
