The Matrix made in 1969 (ChatGPT & Midjourney)

I decided to ask ChatGPT who it would cast in a hypothetical version of the Matrix made in 1969, and then asked Midjourney to create images based on those choices!

ChatGPT casting choices for the Matrix made in 1969

Certainly, creating a hypothetical cast for a 1969 version of The Matrix is an exciting task! Here’s a potential casting line-up:

  1. Neo (Keanu Reeves’ character): Steve McQueen – Known for his “cool” anti-hero persona and acting skills, McQueen could bring an interesting depth to the lead role of Neo.
  2. Morpheus (Laurence Fishburne’s character): Sidney Poitier – As a pioneering African-American actor with a commanding presence, Poitier could bring both gravitas and wisdom to the role of Morpheus.
  3. Trinity (Carrie-Anne Moss’s character): Jane Fonda – Fonda, known for her strength and athleticism (as seen in Barbarella), could make an excellent Trinity with her combination of toughness and vulnerability.
  4. Agent Smith (Hugo Weaving’s character): Richard Burton – With his strong, authoritative voice and formidable presence, Burton could be an excellent choice for the relentless Agent Smith.
  5. The Oracle (Gloria Foster’s character): Ella Fitzgerald – Though primarily known as a jazz singer, Fitzgerald had a warm, wise presence that could make her an interesting choice for the role of The Oracle.
  6. Cypher (Joe Pantoliano’s character): Jack Lemmon – Known for his ability to play both comedic and dramatic roles, Lemmon could bring a depth and relatability to the character of Cypher, who betrays his crewmates.

As for the director, someone like Stanley Kubrick would be an ideal choice. His work on “2001: A Space Odyssey” demonstrated a clear understanding of how to handle complex, thought-provoking sci-fi stories and could bring a unique vision to the world of The Matrix.
