There’s been rumors for a while now that “The Matrix” trilogy filmmakers Andy and Lana Wachowski have been developing a secret sci-fi war movie and that they shot test footage with author/columnist Arianna Huffington and Jesse Ventura, but nobody was able to figure out what it was.
Now, Deadline New York reports that they are trying get financial backers for the project:
I’m told they are circulating a new script that brings them back to terrain they covered in 1996’s Bound, a heist film with a lesbian romance. This one’s a drama that focuses on a “hard R” homosexual relationship between a U.S. soldier and an Iraqi. It’s a cinema verite-style treatment that begins in the near future and then spans back over years that include the current war in Iraq. I’ve heard the siblings completed the script, want to direct it next, and that it is out to financiers.
We’ll have to wait and see how this one turns out.
