Warner Bros. is in the early stages of developing a reboot of 1999 sci-fi classic The Matrix, according to Hollywood Reporter sources.

Widely considered one of the most original films in cinematic history (not to mention its influence on contemporary style), The Matrix became an overnight classic thanks to its then-dazzling special effects and solid performances from Keanu Reeves, Laurence Fishburne and Carrie-Anne Moss.

Hollywood Reporter says there is potential interest in Creed star Michael B. Jordan for the lead role in the reboot, but that the studio is some way off concrete casting decisions.  What we do know is that the Wachowski siblings, who wrote and directed the original and its two sequels, are not involved — at least not yet.

Instead, Zak Penn is said to be currently in talks to write it. Penn is best known for his script work on several superhero movies, including on X-Men: The Last Stand, The Avengers and Elektra.
