Sophia Stewart “Mother of the Matrix”

In what continues to loom as one of the biggest criminal copyright infringement cases in the history of Hollywood, a lone African American woman is fighting the battle of her life against those who would ultimately take credit for blockbuster movie franchises, Terminator and Matrix. Sophia Stewart, a divorced mother of two, Tasha and Paris. and displaced New Yorker now residing in Las Vegas, is in an epochal legal battle with the famed Wachowski brothers (Andy and Larry) from Chicago, two carpenters/Marvel comic book writers who dropped out of college to pursue careers as Hollywood filmmakers. According to Ms. Stewart, an articulate if enigmatic writer turned litigant — the Wachowski brothers stole her script for a science fiction screenplay and turned it into the mega hit that we know today as the Matrix (1999) which racked up billions worldwide.

Here’s how the story goes. Ms. Stewart, with her Bachelor’s degree in journalism from City University of New York in tow, moved to Los Angeles to pursue a writing career and to attend film school at the University of Southern California. Through her association with R&B singer Janet Jackson (go figure), she obtained entree into the entertainment business, initially working on small television projects and eventually landing at Columbia Pictures in the office of then vice president, Dick Berres.

Soon after arriving in L.A., Ms. Stewart wrote a science fiction novel called The Third Eye. The book, she says, is a science fiction version of the ‘second coming’ which she was inspired to write after seeing Star Wars. “What I wrote was the evolution of consciousness, the second coming of Christ — man vs. the machine.” Today we Discuss her story! Should be a great one!
