Once upon a time, before "The Matrix," the Wachowski brothers, Larry and Andy, made a lesbian romance thriller called "Bound" starring Meg Tilly and Gina Gershon. It was a fantastic film, and while the lesbianism angle wasn't the main focus, it provided the heart of the film.
Now, I heard that the Wachowskis are going to make a gay-themed film and it's going to focus on a "hard R" homosexual relationship between a U.S. soldier and an Iraqi, Deadline Hollywood exclusively learned.
The film will be shot "reality-TV" style, and apparently, it will start in the near future and then the narrative will go back in time to include the current Iraq war. The Wachowskis wrote the script and they want to direct as well.
This is exciting, but one question -- why don't the Wachowskis just make a thriller about sex reassignment since Larry is supposed to now be known as Lana And honestly? More power to you Lana, or Larry (no official statement has been given about her name change)!
