This week trans filmmaker Lana Wachowski made her first big public appearance since transitioning to discuss her next mega-blockbuster, Cloud Atlas, starring Halle Berry, Susan Sarandon and Tom Hanks.
Formerly known as Larry, Lana and her brother, Andy, shepherded one of the most popular sci-fi franchises of the early 2000s with the Maxtrix trilogy. She also co-directed the iconic lesbian film Bound and wrote the script for V for Vendetta (The less said about Speed Racer the better.)
Here the siblings and director Tom Tykwer discuss Atlas, based on the novels by David Mitchell and set for a release later this year.
Future projects for the Wachowskis include a modern adaptation of Robin Hood, and the sci-fi feature Jupiter Ascending. Sadly their gay romance/conspiracy thriller, CN-9, failed to find financing.
I wish her my best. I am a fan of most of her movies. There is no greater piece of mind than living your personal truth.
I think it’s great to finally meet her this way.
and I think she looks totally awesome. love it. she does seem a bit shy. I hope she breaks out of her shell a bit more. I think she probably has tons of amazing things to tell us.
go girl! u made our community proud again
She looks great and I love their films, esp. Bound and the V For Vendetta adaptation was pretty good.
Cloud Atlas sounds interesting (and ambitious).
Good for you! You go girl!
Good for her. This movie looks fantastic… and how amazing is her hair?
More power to her, but the hair…she looks like she got attacked by the Kool-aid man.
I won't grow up
Good for her. But uhh….you might wanna re-think the hair, ’cause girlfriend, ooo no!
