According to a source, Warner Bros. might explore expanded universe concepts. The new The Matrix movie may come in the form of a prequel centering on young Morpheus, reports aceshowbiz.com,

In The Matrix trilogy, Morpheus was portrayed by Laurence Fishburne.

The character gained respect from the audience due to his monk-like stoicism and wisdom as a mentor. Should The Matrix spin-off happen, the role of young Morpheus reportedly will be played by Michael B. Jordan.

1999's The Matrix starred Keanu Reeves, and went on to be a cult film with immense following. However, this reboot, being helmed by Warner Brothers, will not have the Wachowskis direct it. It is being developed as a new project.

The movie sees a dystopian future where humans are unaware they live in a simulated reality created by sentient machines. Computer programmer named Neo (Reeves) slowly learns the truth and starts the rebellion against the machines.
