    We are advocating downloading, boycotting, and/or participation in a letter-writing campaign to oppose the verbal harrassment, character assasination, and eventual arrest of Marcus Chong ("Tank" of The Matrix) during failed salary negotiations by the Wachowski Brothers, producers of the Matrix sequels. The role of "Tank" has been eliminated for the first sequel.





    Marcus Chong's new agent found out that Joel Silvers had him reported to the FBI and posted his picture in the security booth of Warner Bros. We don't have a date as to when this happened.

    Regarding the documents that were posted here about his arrest and dispute with the producers: the D.A. dropped the charges and Marcus had posted bail within two hours of the arrest. The photos that were given to police as evidence were shots from "Panther" and the guns in the photos are fake movie guns. We also need to stress that Marcus has never owned a gun or felt the need to own a gun. The documents in question have been removed at Marcus' request and should not be copied or posted elsewhere without permission. We hope to have a more complete and accurate timeline in the future when Marcus has more time.

    Marcus Chong's comments on the situation with the producers of the Matrix: "They have made and continue to profit off of the urban market that I guarantee them. They have executed a social death preceding my physical death. This is the essence of discrimination. Formulating opinions of others not based on merit but rather on membership in some group with the same characteristics."

    "As far as my co-leads are concerned Keanu, Fishburn and Moss they do not know the details and they were signed on before this went down and must fulfill their contract. And it truly has nothing to do with them and they have made sure to keep it that way. But I have no grief with them."

    And in closing : "Make sure the fans know I am happy healthy and ready to make more films. Let them know to keep their eyes on the prize, to look ahead for a great year and know that I keep them in mind with every take. At every audition I consider 'would my fans be ok with this?'."

    What was weird was that at the end of the first one, he was fine, and then in the Reloaded, his sister simply says "I lost two brothers to that ship."

    I thought he didn't die? :confused:
