Nerds around the world are all very curious about the next project to come from the Wachowski Brothers. The men behind the Matrix series have been puzzling Hollywood for months, working on a project known as Cobalt Neural 9 - a project people know little to nothing about. As of now, all that was known was that it was a love story between a U.S. soldier and an Iraqi one, but we've got some more deets that are pretty exciting, including the fact that this love affair is a GAY ONE!
What the what?! Amazeballs! What a great time for this!
We have more details that are very SPOILER heavy, so if you'f rather not know, DON'T READ ON!
Basically, the film takes place 100 years in the future and "digital archeologists" are going through old footage of the time when U.S. occupied Iraq. They come across the story of Butch, a homosexual American Marine who travels to the Middle East to "fuck and kill everything", but then falls in love with an Iraqi. The two meet while Butch is on patrol and it doesn't take long before their romance turns into a raunchy sex scene hidden behind closed burqas.
But here's where it gets REALLY crazy! Of course, they're affair is discovered just as the war really starts to heat up. That's when they convince themselves that the only way they can be together is to "kill the architect of the invasion" - George W. Bush! The movie then turns from romantic tragedy to mission impossible as they try to assassinate Georgie on one of his secret visits to Iraq!
We're told the film will have a very Cloverfield-esque feel to it and could cost the brothers about $20 million to make. We say the brothers, because so far, no studio wants to touch this film and considering how much dough they made off of the Matrix franchise, the brothers could finance it themselves.
It sure would get a lot of attention that's for sure. We'd be interested in seeing it!
Would U? Thoughts?
