New details on the Wachowskis’ CN9 arise
The more we hear about this film, the more I think it may be a return to form for this dynamic duo.
According to Deadline, we now know that the upcoming Wachowski sibing-directed, hard-R gay romance Iraq War film, formerly known as CN9, is now called COBALT NEURAL 9, and that the pair are also apparently looking for actors to fill the cast.
However, the two are being so secretive about the film, so much so, that those auditioning are not even getting a chance to actually see the script, which has apparently (and thanks to The Playlist for this hilarious fact) sparked a tweet from former acquisition executive at Canal +, that reads “Cobalt Neural 9: Worst screenplay ever!” While I don’t know if this is actually the same script, as the tweet was from May, but one has to think that only so many films could have the same title.
Overall, I’m super excited for this film, because I have to say, I may not like a lot of their recent work, but films like BOUND and the first MATRIX film have proven that these two are massively talented filmmakers. Here’s hoping this one proves that again.
