The Wachowski Brothers are dropping the “Brothers,” because one of the boys, Larry, will now be a girl, Lana.
Ms. Wachowski, who worked with brother Andy to bring us The Matrix franchise, began taking hormones a few years ago and, from the looks of it, they’re working. Go, girl!
While it’s great to have such a prominent, powerful person bringing trans issues to the forefront, Lana says she won’t do press until after the release of Speed Racer, according to Rated-M:
[Lana] will actually speak to the press about this for the first time, but not until after the Speed Racer film is out. The current feeling is that his sex change could hurt the family image the Speed Racer film is going for.
It is also expected that Andy will do all the press for the Speed Racer film, with Larry/Lana staying in the background for the above reason.
Once they’ve raked in their movie dough, the siblings will reportedly sit down with Dateline.
