A back flip is a difficult feat for many to overcome. But The Matrix director sex change may cause involuntary back flips among the public.

Larry Wachowski first introduced herself as Lana Wachowski in the director’s commentary trailer for the upcoming Cloud Atlas. But according to OnTheRedCarpet, The Matrix director sex change occurred in 2008.

The Matrix director sex change was also officially revealed in an interview for this year’s documentary, Side By Side.

The Matrix director sex change began in 2002 when Wachowski split from ex-wife Thea Bloom.

According to a 2004 People article, Wachowski and Bloom had problems with their prenuptial agreement. Bloom claimed that Wachowski did not give her a sufficient report of the director’s net worth.

As a result, the Los Angeles Superior Court prohibited Wachowski from receiving anything of value from her two film production companies, co-owned with her brother, Andy Wachowski.

After their divorce, Wachowski was seen with a professional dominatrix named Ilsa Strix at a The Matrix Reloaded premier.

Though it is unknown whether The Matrix director sex change is complete, according to GlobalPost, Wachowski has been getting hormone treatment for the last ten years.

The People article also noted that The Matrix director sex change was already revealed by Wachowski’s friends almost a decade ago, and by a date she went to the Cannes Film Festival with.

Wachowski’s upcoming film, Cloud Atlas, is a sci-fi movie based on the novel by David Mitchell, featuring characters from the present to the future. According to OnTheRedCarpet, The Matrix director’s movie is set for release on Oct. 26th. Cloud Atlas will star Tom Hanks, Hugo Weaving, Jim Sturgess, Halle Berry, Hugh Grant and Susan Sarandon.
