The Matrix 4….. Almost

Based on an what is supposedly a ground-breaking novel and series of comic books by William Gibson, who’s work has previously inspired the likes of Johnny Mnemomic, some of the not-so-good later episodes of The X-Files and even managed to write a draft to Alien 3 that absolutely nobody liked, Neuromancer is set to be directed by Joseph Kahn (Torque and…… uhm…… “Toxic” for Britney Spears), with everybody’s favourite plank of dead wood Hayden Christensen taking the lead role. Now for the plot synopsis:

Case (Christensen) was the hottest computer cowboy cruising the information superhighway, jacking his consciousness into cyberspace, soaring through tactile lattices of data and logic, rustling encoded secrets for anyone with the money to buy his skills. Then he double-crossed the wrong people, who caught up with him in a big way — and burned the talent out of his brain, micron by micron. Banished from cyberspace, trapped in the meat of his physical body, Case courted death in the high-tech underworld. Until a shadowy conspiracy offered him a second chance — and a cure — for a price …

Oooh…… A price? What could it be? Not to be sued by The Wachowski Brothers for obvious plagerism? Lets hope so.

  1. But considering the book was published waaay back in 1984 I’m sure if there’s suing to be done it’ll be of the Wachowskis, not by them.
