I know you have rescinded your comment but come on. If Keanu Reeves could pull off Neo Will Smith would have been able to do it 100 times better. Seriously Keanu Reeves only has one emotion, and it is a shame that emotion is utter indifference to everything.EllEzDee said:I'm pretty sure it's the other way around. Smith wanted to be in the movie, and he wasn't able to pull off a convincing Neo. I remember reading about it when his wife Jada-Pinkett Smith was cast as Niobe.Diligent said:"They've reportedly approached Will Smith, who infamously passed when they offered him the role of Neo in The Matrix. Yes, that happened. "
I actually didn't know this.
"Welcome to the real world Neo."
"AAAWWW HELLLL NO!"
EDIT: It seems wherever i read that was wrong.
"Actor Will Smith turned down the role of Neo to make Wild Wild West, due to skepticism over the film's ambitious bullet time special effects." -Wiki
OT: I would watch it. A modern take would be cool depending on how they did it.
