RUMOR: The Matrix reboot is actually a prequel!

According to several new reports, the Matrix reboot that Warner Bros. announced earlier this month may actually take the form of a Morpheus origin story (a role previously played by Laurence Fishburne).

That said, one can draw the conclusion that the casting of Michael B. Jordan (reported earlier this month) hints at the character of a young Morpheus.

In related news, screenwriter Zak Penn (X2, X-Men: The Last Stand) has reportedly been tapped to create a treatment for the new Matrix prequel. He posted to Twitter to clarify some details.

All I can say at this point is no one could or should REBOOT The Matrix. People who know Animatrix and the comics understand. Can’t comment yet except to say that the words “reboot” and “remake” were from an article. Let’s stop responding to inaccurate news.

What do you think of a Morpheus origin story? Will it benefit the Matrix expanded universe? Tell me your thoughts in the comments below!

The reboot solely because they don't have to pay for the rights to a story - they already own them. 
That's why we got those (failed) Spiderman and Fantastic 4 reboots. And why studios that own the rights to TV shows make them into movies. 
 It has nothing to do with creativity or the lack of ideas... If they had lack of ideas they would address thetermpapers.net.it's strictly money and the risk of buying an idea that will fail.
