Jesse Ventura has been unveiling some fairly well kept secrets on his reality series Conspiracy Theory as of late, but nothing like the bomb he dropped this morning on the Howard Stern Show. The former pro-wrestler turned governor was asked by the popular radio host if he missed acting in films. Venture responded with, "I just did one for the Wachowski brothers."
Yes. It seems that Jesse "The Body" Ventura will be returning to the big screen in a secret Futuristic Iraqi War film being directed by the notorious Wachowski brothers, who shot to fame with their epic Matrix trilogy. News of this undisclosed production broke late last year when Arianna Huffington tweeted about her participation in the movie as well. At that time, no one had any idea what this upcoming Wachowski brothers project was going to be or what it was about.
/film offers a transcript of Ventura's insights into the film. Though, it becomes quite obvious that he doesn't know much more about the Wachowski's actual intentions concerning the contents of this sealed-off stretch of celluloid than we previously did. When asked what the film was about, Ventura told Stern that he didn't know. They didn't have a script and the whole thing was improvised. Jesse stated, "Wait till you hear what they did. They brought me, and they brought Arianna Huffington in after me. Arianna was there, and they had her looking like Cleopatra. What they did... Do you remember what John Travolta looked like in that horrible film Battlefield Earth? They put multicolored dreadlocks on me all the way to here. They gave me this crazy beard that was hanging down pointed, looked like Travolta, right? And they put a third eye in the middle of my forehead. Because what this is, is this is a hundred years in the future, and they wanted me to talk about the current war in Iraq and how I felt about it. And so I got to vent, looking like this maniac in this whole outfit."
Ventura then said that he was interviewed documentary-style about the Iraq War. While this is about all we know of the project at this time, we will keep you updated as soon as more information becomes available.
