Wait... A MATRIX 2 Prequel'! But Wouldn't That Be THE MATRIX'!

Hey, everyone. "Moriarty" here with some Rumblings From The Lab.

Before I crash for the night... morning... whatever the hell time it is... I just had to share one last rumor with you. This is a new spy for us here at AICN, and we'll call him Xerxes for the time being. Since he's new, I'm handing out grains of salt to be taken as you read the following, but hopefully he'll pan out and we'll see more from him in the future. I've deleted all his personal info, but he was fairly detailed, and I think he's on the level. For now, he's got a story to tell about a very odd project he just heard about... check this out.

... anyway, he's been trying to get me to move out to DELETED and work for DELETED. While we were talking, he took me aside and let me in on a little secret he heard from a friend at Square. Square, the company that made FINAL FANTASY, is currently working DIRECTLY with the Wachowski Brothers on a 10 minute, totally CGI prequel to Matrix 2 (Reloaded...whatever it's called)

From what I understand, it's meant for some special internet release sometime in 2002 and also to go along with the DVD. He mentioned something about the DVD, but I can't remember the details on that and I don't want to screw that up with speculation.

Call me Xerxes.

I doubt this is being included on the MATRIX REVISITED DVD that we ran a story about yesterday, so maybe it's meant to be included on the actual MATRIX RELOADED disc when it comes out. If it's a prequel, though, then wouldn't they want it out before the next film?

It's all very confusing and odd, and it sounds like we're going to have a whole lot of MATRIX to sort through in the very near future. Sure hope it's all as good as the first film or better.

"Moriarty" out.
