Wow, I first (indeed, last) posted about this concept more than ten years ago?
So I’m, uh, actually making this now. A proof of concept (consisting of the opening Trinity vs. Agents action scene) is completed and will be posted alongside my first edit, Scott Pilgrim vs. the Editor, which is pending Fanedit Academy approval.
I still intend to replace some of the music, but rather than going for a pure noir pastiche, I want to lean into the TRON angle and draw on some synthwave — Muse’s latest album in particular, Simulation Theory, seems almost tailor-made for this. To this end, I’ve settled on a slight rejig of the title: The Matrix: Édition Noir et Néon. Pun on our hero’s name entirely intended.
More details to come, probably in a fresh thread rather than this one.
