Is Lost’s captain Jack going to star in the next project from Matrix creators Larry and Andy Wachowski? It is being reported that Matthew Fox is in final negotiations to play the role of the mysterious villain “Racer X” in “Speed Racer”.
The movie, which is a live action adaptation of an animated series from the 60s will be shot in Berlin this summer.
As a pretty big fan of both The Matrix and V for Vendetta, I’m really looking forward to see the Wachowski vision of “Speed Racer”. I don’t know much about the character Matthew would be playing, but it will be cool to see him portraying a villain.
Update: Apparently Racer X isn’t a villain, but either way I think it can be an interesting character to see Matthew portray.
