We all know that the groundbreaking Wachowski Brothers are finally following up their "Matrix" trilogy with "Speed Racer," the Emile Hirsch flick that will zoom into theaters in June. Now, the Brothers are making plans to reunite with one of their favorite actors for the movie after that one.
Taiwanese action star Collin Chou, best known in the U.S. for playing Seraph in "Matrix Revolutions" and "Matrix "Reloaded," revealed to MTV News that he has signed on to a top-secret project the trippy filmmakers hope to begin after "Speed Racer."
The high-kicking Chou will soon be seen opposite Jackie Chan and Jet Li, appearing as the villainous Jade War Lord in April 18's damn fine kung fu flick "The Forbidden Kingdom." Following that film's release, Chou will continue talking with the Wachowskis as they develop their unnamed script with him in mind.
The inclusion of Chou, a veteran of more than thirty martial arts films, would seem to indicate that the Wachowskis are hoping to get back to the stylized fighting and wire work that made "Matrix" a powerhouse sci-fi series. Chou insisted that he wasn't allowed to reveal any further details, but keep checking in as we'll bring you more in the months to come.
