Lilly and Lana Wachowskitransgender sibling filmmakers behind the Matrix trilogy and the lesbian-themed thriller Boundare attempting to sell their Ravenswood Avenue studio space, Crain's Chicago Business reported Oct. 22.
The Chicago-based filmmakers' family-owned firm, Kinoworks, is listing the 21,500 square-foot facility for just under $5 million; the listing is with Brad Lippitz, of Compass.
The filmmakers, whose work also includes the Netflix series Sense 8, generally film their live-action material in Berlin and do pre- and post-production work in Chicago, according to Crain's. They have been in the current North Side facility since 2007 and had no new productions following the Sense 8's production closing.
