The Wachowskis Have Another Secret New Project Called 'Hood'?
Um wait what - where did this come from? Heat Vision has just published a very interesting exclusive story stating that the Wachowski Siblings, Andy and Lana, have another secret project in the works that isn't Cobalt Neural 9 or the Cloud Atlas adaptation that Halle Berry was just talking about coming up. So what is it? Apparently it's called Hood and, you guessed it, it's another "modern, urban take on the Robin Hood myth." Didn't we just go through this with Ridley Scott? Apparently they wrote the script and are directing, but how soon, no one knows? As always, Joel Silver is producing the project, and it's "shrouded in secrecy."
So here's all they know about it. Apparently they're looking at actors, including Will Smith, but that's it. They add, vaguely: "While a take on Robin Hood may not be much to go on, knowing the proclivities of the duo, it will undoubtedly have a brand of visual take and their comic book-fused pop art sensitivities." Okay, so that's not much. Will this be sci-fi? Because if so, that might be pretty cool, but we're not sure what the situation is. This is a surprising announcement, right out of left field, so I'm hoping this means good things. I'd love to see the Wachowskis get back with a badass concept. We'll keep you guys updated. Thoughts?
