Keanu Reeves nailed the role of ‘Neo’ in The Matrix with his grim yet powerful presence on screen, but things could have turned out differently. Recently, Will Smith divulged that he actually turned down the exact role Reeves took up.
Smith mentions in a YouTube video that he rejected The Matrix offer to film Wild Wild West instead. Now, movie buffs are left to wonder how it would be like if Smith actually played ‘Neo’.
Well, look no further. We’ve got a gift/curse—you decide.
Through deepfake technology, YouTuber Sham00k has produced footage of Smith if he had portrayed the lead character in The Matrix.
The short clip presents key scenes of the movie, including the part when ‘Neo’ had to choose between the red or the blue pill.
It is only fair to judge the “Will Smith” version of ‘Neo’ for yourself.
