The 1999 sci-fi The Matrix is making another comeback.

While the details are not clear, sources tell The Hollywood Reporter that Warner Bros. is in the process of developing a reboot.

The Wachowski siblings, who wrote the original movie and the two sequels, are not involved with the new film. Zak Penn (X2: X-Men United) is set to pen a treatment for the film, while Michael B. Jordan (Creed, Fruitvale Station) is in talks to play the lead role.
