Wachowskis prepping Jupiter Ascending

Original sci-fi project from The Matrix duo

Lana and Andy Wachowski are set to write and direct an original sci-fi film called Jupiter Ascending
Vigilant movie fans may still remember their little science fiction project The Matrix, which spawned three movies and grossed $1.6bn worldwide. 
Unlucky movie fans may also still remember Speed Racer, which is why it's great to hear they're writing and directing one of their own ideas rather than adapting an existing story. 
Production is scheduled to start in spring 2012 and the pair have until then to agree an A-list star with studio Warner Bros.
With the script and even the concept under wraps for now here's everything we know about the project: Jupiter Ascending
Could this be the top-secret pic they were planning back in 2008, with Matrix Reloaded and Revolutions co-star Collin Chou (he played Seraph) tapped up for a role? 
Only time will tell. 

Glad to see the Wachowski's make a return to original projects? Or will lightening not strike twice? Share your thoughts below.

      What's wrong with Speed Racer? Great kids movie and faithful to the source anime. Don't confuse successful films with good films.

      Speed Racer wasn't a movie, it was a video game.

      I'm probably one of the few who realise how great of a film Speed Racer was. And anyone who I've introduced it too seem to see the same thing too. I think moreso it was sad that it was marketed really obserdly and so failed at the box office and ended up without a sequel.
