The team behind The Matrix is considering producing a gay romance film that takes place during the Iraq war.

The Wachowskis – Andy and Lana – are currently shopping their script which pairs a U.S. soldier and an Iraqi civilian in love.

“This one's a drama that focuses on a 'hard R' homosexual relationship,” Deadline New York wrote. The site is also reporting that the film takes place in the future and travels back in time to the Iraq war.

“It's a very curious project,” said Peter Knegt at his Lost Boy blog.

“It's cool to see folks even attempting to get something like this off the ground,” Knegt wrote. “Especially given the fact that hundreds of gay men have been targeted and killed in Iraq since 2004, and that the issues the film could potentially present are intensely important ones.”

The Wachowskis' 1996 film Bound paired Jennifer Tilly and Gina Gershon in love as they hatched a scheme to steal millions in Mafia money. It was the team's first mainstream hit.

But it was the 1999 release of the futuristic sci-fi thriller The Matrix that put the siblings on the movie map. Their 2008 film adaptation of Tatsuo Yoshida's Japanese anime series Speed Racer, starring Emile Hirsch as Speed and Christina Ricci as Trixie, sputtered out at the box office.
