Matrix-makers considered Sandra Bullock as the main character Neo

The creators of The Matrix have considered Sandra Bullock as a main character to cast. Before Keanu Reeves was chosen for the role of Neo, mentioned she for the script to rewrite it so that a woman’s main role could play. That reports The Wrap Wednesday.

Producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura would with studio Warner Bros have to fight to the sf film made. A big name for the starring role would be a requirement. Among others, Brad Pitt, Leonardo DiCaprio and Will Smith would have been eligible.

“We started to get desperate,” says Di Bonaventura. “We sought contact with Sandra Bullock and said: ‘we are changing Neo into a woman’.” The producer explains further: “We sent her the script to see if they are interested. If that was the case, we would try to make the change to take effect.”

An agent of Bullock reacts opposite to The Wrap that the actress is the specific state of affairs may not remember, but that she is the right person to play the leading role. Earlier, the actress announced that she was asked for the role of Trinity, and regretted that they who chance to pass had let go. Eventually, Carrie-Anne Moss cast as the tegenspeelster of Reeves.

The Matrix, about rebels fighting against an all-controlling, self-thinking computer system, was in 1999 a worldwide blockbuster. The film won four Oscars, including one for the groundbreaking visual effects. In 2003, the sequels The Matrix Reloaded and The Matrix Revolutions.
