Last we heard, Andy and Lana Wachowski – the filmmakers behind 'The Matrix' – were hard at work on their intriguing new film 'CN-9.' Unfortunately, the directing duo hasn't been able to secure funding for their tale of forbidden love between an American and Iraqi soldier and the men's plan to assassinate President George W. Bush. As they continue to seek financing for that project, the Wachowski's also have other irons in the fire.

THR is reporting that one of those projects is a new take on 'Robin Hood,' simply titled 'Hood.' This may seem odd after Ridley Scott's 'Robin Hood' underwhelmed at the US box office this summer (before rebounding to make 200 million in its foreign release – pushing it into profitability), but the Wachowski version will reportedly be a "modernized" take on the classic tale of Sherwood Forest's most beloved outlaw. In other words, don't expect to see anyone running around in green tights with a bow and arrows as their weapon of choice...
