Strange ideas and ambitious artistry, Andy and Lana Wachowski are, if anything, two of the most creative minds in Hollywood.  Their films might not always do well, but the idealism, acute social commentary and visual splendor their works display are to be applauded. It’s always with much excitement and great curiosity to see what these two are up to next.

While we suspect good things await with their upcoming futuristic adventure Jupiter Ascending, we’re a little bit more intrigued with what’s going on with their proposed 10 episodes Netflix series Sense8. Plot and characters details have emerged alluding to something grand.  (more…)

With a budget of $100 million, Cloud Atlas marks the return of the successful Andy and Lana Wachowski. Collaborating heavily together on the screenplay and co-directing the film, the duo is now heavily into promoting the feature with co-director Tom Tykwer. So the Wachowski Starship (they have seriously been calling themselves that lately) have been busy, just not to busy to co-create a super secret new television series with Babylon 5 creator J. Michael Straczynski.

Variety reports that the Wachowskis and Straczynski have been pitching a mysterious new show to several networks called Sense8. The overall concept of the show is shrouded in secrecy for now with the only known information being that Sense8 will be an hour long series, that Straczynski will serve as Sense8‘s show runner, and the Wachowski siblings will direct several episodes.

Currently Straczynski is in the process of pitching a new thriller series for ABC, while the siblings are juggling press before the October 26th release of Cloud Atlas as well as prepping the production for their next mind-bender Jupiter Ascending, so do be surprised if we have to wait on Sense8 whatever the hell it is.
