The Wachowski Brothers is No More — Larry Becomes Lana


This is interesting. There’s no real movie movie news here, but since the Wachowski Brothers are such giants in the movie business, something as monumental as one of the brothers no longer becoming, well, brothers has to make the front page, right? Or, in this case, a movie news post. Remember all those rumors that Larry Wachowski was planning on getting a sex change? Well, it’s true, and Larry has now become … Lana Wachowski. That’s right, kids. You will now be using the wrong phrase when you refer to the Wachowskis as “The Wachowski Brothers”. Instead, they’ll just be The Wachowskis.

The guys over at has all the details about Larry’s journey from bro to dame. Basically, it took a year and a half, and included female hormone therapy for the transformation to happen.

So how does this affect the production of “Speed Racer”? Well, probably not very much. After all, Larry may have become Lana, but they’re still the Wachowskis, so I reckon not a whole lot will change with the movie. Rated-M hypothesizes that Larry/Lana won’t make a big deal about the change (i.e. speak to the press) until “Speed Racer” is released, because as silly as it sounds, the fact that one of the film’s directors going from a man to a woman may somehow harm the film’s appeal as a “family film”, which is really silly, but that’s the current state of social affairs in America for ya.

This is actually not that big of a deal if you’ve read Larry Wachowski’s bio on This passage in particular is worth nothing:

He left Bloom in 2002 for Karin Winslow, a professional dominatrix, who left her husband to take Wachowski on as her “slave.”


Word is Dateline NBC will get first dibs on the interview when Lana/Larry goes public with his transformation. I hope that Chris Hanson guy isn’t involved, for Larry/Lana’s sake…

Here’s the Wachowski Brothers before (Larry is the skinny guy):


Now the Wachowski Brothers after (Larry/Lana is now the skinny girl):

    People today are so fucked up in the head now they don’t know what they wanna be. Lana is an ugly bitch indeed. I don’t even like the wachowski brothers anymore now. I know andy was devistated and embarrased. They’ll never be the same.

      Well guess what, Lana is a successful director who has achieved her goal
      of being who she truly is. If you read the comments on news sites you’d
      see everyone is behind her 100%. I can’t imagine Andy being embarrassed
      about her transition. She is happier than she has ever been. If you
      read about her life you’d know she struggled her whole life being
      bullied and looked down on and was suicidal. Try not to pass judgment when you don’t know a person.
