A friend of mine, Jeffrey Tuggle, recently brought something to my attention. “The Matrix” trilogy, a multi-billion dollar series, and “The Terminator” (also not lacking for any funds), has apparently been under private fire. Larry and Andy Wachowski, the creators of The Matrix, allegedly pirated their “creation” from one Miss Sophia Stewart, an African-American woman who authored “The Third Eye” in 1981, a treatise dealing with the expansive and thematic concepts wrestled with in “The Matrix” and “The Terminator”. According to Stewart, “The Terminator” was also derived from her works (both movies were produced by Warner Brothers). Below is an excerpt from the linked article:
She didn’t find out about the piracy until she went to see the movie herself in 1999.
After several attempts to move forward with the case, the Central District of California allowed the case to go forward in 2004; if successful, she is set to receive one of the biggest payoffs in Hollywood history.
Major news outlets have amazingly kept quiet on the issue. Stewart has reasons of her own as to why:
“The reason you have not seen any of this in the media is because Warner Brothers parent company is AOL-Time Warner… this GIANT owns 95 percent of the media… let me give you a clue as to what they own in the media business… New York Times papers/magazines, LA Times papers/magazines, People Magazine, CNN news, Extra, Celebrity Justice, Entertainment Tonight, HBO, New Line Cinema, Dreamworks, Newsweek, Village Roadshow… many, many more… They are not going to report on themselves. They have been suppressing my case for years…“
