Matrix Reboot in Development Stage

Warner Bros. is reportedly in the early stages of developing a reboot of the iconic sci-fi franchise The Matrix. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the Wachowski siblings--who wrote and directed the original  trilogy--are not involved and their future engagement with the project  has not been determined. 

Sources close to the relaunch tell the outlet  that Zak Penn is in talks to write a treatment and that Michael B.  Jordan is being eyed at the potential star. While Joel Silver--who  produced the original trilogy--is said to have approached the studio  about the idea of a new film, he sold his interest in all his movies to  the studio in 2012 for about $30 million.
