Some details have been revealed regarding the Wachowskis’ next project, Cobalt Neural 9, courtesy of Vulture.
As was previously reported, the film takes place in the near future and deals with a homosexual relationship between a U.S. soldier and an Iraqi. Said to be shot in a Cinéma vérité style, Vulture suggests that much of the film is told through artificial news reports viewed from a narrative point a hundred years in the future.
The American character is Butch, a marine who, after falling in love with the Iraqi character, conspires with him to assassinate President George W. Bush. The framework of the film, then, falls in both the future and the recent past, though apparently within an altered history.
Another point of note is that the title is, apparently, meaningless and that a different one will soon be selected to help maintain the script’s secrecy. Click here to head to Vulture for more details on the enigmatic project.
