Last week it was announced that Warner Bros. is rebooting The Matrix with a new movie based upon the classic sci-fi action series, with Michael B. Jordan wanted for the lead role.
Writer Zak Penn subsequently took to Twitter to confirm that the new project is not a reboot of the property, and now Birth.Movies.Death is suggesting that it is in fact a prequel based around the character of Morpheus, with Michael B. Jordan lined up for the Laurence Fishburne role.
The site also goes on to claim that Warner Bros. has established a writers room for The Matrix, suggesting the studio is looking at multiple films, and that the Morpheus idea is one of several under consideration.
