Directing siblings the WACHOWSKI brothers are determined to make a children’s movie so their nieces and nephews can finally get to see their work.
Andy and Larry Wachowski are best known for action blockbusters like The Matrix and V For Vendetta, as well as lesbian con movie Bound.
But The Wachowski Brothers are now planning a change of genre to appeal to younger viewers – they’re latest project is family movie Speed Racer, which stars Christina Ricci and Susan Sarandon, and is produced by Joel Silver.
Silver says, “It’s a big family movie – they wanted to make a G-rated movie.
“They said their nephews and nieces would call them and say, ‘Why can’t we see your movies?’ They said maybe we could find a way to do that.
“They think some of the animated movies like Toy Story and Finding Nemo, are very sentimental. They want to make a picture like that, a movie that is not quite so cynical, but can be more fun.”
