The new Wachowski sci-fi film CN9? Here's why it's called CN9

We're hoping that CN9, the new film from the Wachowskis, ends up more like The Matrix than Speed Racer. We're hoping that it treats its subject—the relationship between a U.S. soldier and an Iraqi in a near-future sci-fi setting—in a Hurt Locker kind of way rather than exploitatively. But meanwhile, we're also struggling to understand what the frak the title means!

According to worstpreviews, the Wachowskis are already casting what will be a "hard R" movie, with no word yet on when filming will begin.

But what does CN9 stand for?

The site speculates that the term may refer to the ninth cranial nerve, which is a glossopharyngeal nerve related to the tongue and the pharynx. We have no idea whether that's the take the Wachowskis intend, or how they'd spin it in a sci-fi way, but it certainly has us thinking.

What do YOU think CN9 could mean?
