After the box-office failure of Speed Racer, it’s only logical that the Wachowski brothers would make their next project something more overtly commercial. Like, maybe, a movie about “Iraq from the perspective of the future” starring Arianna Huffington. That’s how the HuffPo founder described on Twitter the film whose set she was visiting yesterday. “Do u want to know what I’ll look like in 90 years?” she tweeted. “Here’s a shot from the set of the Wachowskis’ futuristic movie.” (See above). Nobody knows what they were shooting, though speculation is that it was a screen test for the Wachowskis’ adaptation of David Mitchell’s postapocalyptic novel Cloud Atlas. Looks awesome to us. After the jump, Twitpics of Huffington with the Wachowskis, Andy and Lana (she used to be Larry).
This is Arianna and the Wachowskis after the shoot:
