Earlier this month a member of the Java Hut posted that Jon Cooksey had been dropped as the writer.
I contacted Paul Gertz (VP of Rainmaker) to confirm, below is his reply.
Good to hear from you, I just got back from vacation which is why it took me a while to respond to your email. To answer your question, it is true that Jon Cooksey is no longer writing the ReBoot film. Jon is a great talent, had a real love for ReBoot, and was a joy to work with, but in the end we decided to take a different direction with the story and had to make a very difficult call on Jon. As you know as well as anyone, we are determined to do everything we can to deliver a great film that satisfies the fans and a broader audience as well, and that is why we made this decision.
Hope to see you soon!
Who the next writer will be is unknown at this time.
