Variety on Simultaneous Filming

By Paul Martin July 28th, 2000, in The Matrix Trilogy

“Much like ‘Lord of the Rings,’ keeping the stories straight is half the battle. Originally, the Wachowski’s wanted to do the second pic as a prequel, but the end of the first pic seemed to lead directly to a sequel.” (Variety in reference to shooting more than one film at the same time.)

New Line is producing The Lord of the Rings Trilogy. Warner Bros: The Matrix Trilogy. Fox: The X-Men Trilogy.

All are going into the trilogy market thinking the same thing: It isn’t often when a Star Wars type situation comes around, let’s not screw this up!
