The main scriptwriters, [[Creator/TheWachowskis Lana and Andy (Now Lilly) Wachowski]], ended up protesting several changes in their script, which they felt made the final product too different from what they had conceived. This did not prevent them from selling to the same producer, Joel Silver, a second script they had completed alongside Assassins. ''Film/TheMatrix'' would not be ready for release until 1999.
