Like the evil Agent Smith in his Matrix trilogy, it appears that director Larry Wachowski can perform some shape-shifting of his own, according to the Daily Mail.

In the trailer for his latest movie, the £80-million production ‘Cloud Atlas’, Wachowski introduces his new persona in a breathy voice: “Hi, I’m Lana.”

Wachowski underwent nearly a decade of hormone therapy as part of his sex-change.

Before this, his claim to fame was the Matrix trilogy he conceived with his brother Andy.

Starring Keanu Reeves, the Matrix movies raked in nearly £1-billion worldwide.

With his star on the rise, Wachowski left his wife for a dominatrix called Ilsa Strix.

Wachowski’s new film stars Tom Hanks, Halle Berry and Hugh Grant, and is based on a hit novel by British author David Mitchell. - IOL
