Wachowskis Plan Iraq-Set Gay Love Story

Remember a few months back both Arianna Huffington and Jesse Ventura were involved in some ‘test filming’ that “The Matrix” creators the Wachowskis were doing for an upcoming top-secret sci-fi war movie?

Well today Deadline has learned a bit of detail about the storyline which will focus on a gay relationship between a US soldier and an Iraqi citizen.

The pair have apparently completed the script which, unlike the very tame same-sex romance aspects of “Brokeback Mountain”, aims to be explicit enough to yield a “hard R”. So where does the sci-fi come in? The story begins in the near future and will look back at events over several years including the current Iraqi war in the narrative.

The film is likely to be their next project and is apparently out to financiers.
