The studio behind the original post-apocalyptic sci-fi thriller, Warner Bros.is set to relaunch the franchise, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Penn is widely known for his writing roles in popular movies like The Avengers and X-Men: The Last Stand, while Jordan starred most recently in Fantastic Four and Creed. There are even rumors of attachingCreed star Michael B. Jordan.

Thus far, the original Wachowski siblings who directed the original are not involved in the project, but they could potentially become part of it later on. Neither are any of the original actors, including Keanu Reeves - who played the original Neo in the trilogy - Laurence Fishburne or Carrie-Anne Moss.

While it is still clearly very early doors, here at T3 Towers we feel a little apprehensive about this reboot. It seems just like a choice between the blue pill or the red pill.

Some elements within Warner Bros. are reported to be cautious about the idea of a reboot, believing The Matrix may have attained something of an untouchable status since it first blew audiences away in 1999.

A large part of the success of the Matrix has been attributed to the Wachowskis, and Warner has been wary of making any reboot that did not include them.

There was a mini Matrix cast reunion at the John Wick 2 premiere with all three main stars attending, so it's possible they may be enticed back.

With the Wachowskis not being now involved, that doesn't look promising for Reeves to be in it either.

Though they could, of course, get involved in some capacity in the future, they aren't now attached as directors for the new project. "And then we'd see what the story is, but yeah, I dunno, that'd be weird, but why not?"

The former freedom fighters posed together, just over 13 years after the final installment of The Matrix series, The Matrix Revolutions, premiered.
