According to Sophia Stewart , in 1999, after seeing the movie "The Matrix," she filed a copyright lawsuit against the Wachowski Brothers, Joel Silver and Warner Brothers. She was shocked to learn that the movie was based on her original manuscript entitled the "The Third Eye," which has a copyright, which dates back to 1981. The FBI also found during the course of their investigation that her copyrighted script was passed to James Cameron over at Columbia Pictures, and he infringed it as well for his movie "The Terminator."
"According to court documentation, an FBI investigation discovered that more than thirty minutes had been edited from the original Matrix film, in an attempt to avoid penalties for copyright infringement. The investigation also stated that credible witnesses employed at Warner Brothers came forward, claiming that the executives and lawyers had full knowledge that the work in question did not belong to the Wachowski Brothers.
These witnesses claimed to have seen Stewart's original work and that it had been often used during preparation of the motion pictures. The defendants tried, on several occasions, to have Stewart's case dismissed, without success.

Child prodigy, prolific writer, poet and creative genius are just a few of the terms used to describe Sophia Stewart.
Stewart received a Bachelor of Arts Degree in journalism and minors in law and psychology from the City University of New York
In 1979, her love and skills for writing motivated her to move from New York to Los Angeles where she studied cinema at the University of Southern California (USC). It was there she had the opportunity to study film under the auspices of producer Leon Roth; father of Eric Roth, screenwriter of the movie Forrest Gump.
Mother of the Matrix as she is affectionately known, wrote her Epic The Third Eye while she was studying cinema at the University of Southern California. This ingenuous work, copyrighted since 1981, is the foundation and contains the core elements of the blockbuster films: The Terminator and The Matrix.
Stewart's brilliance lies in her ability to create characters, stories and cinematic magic. In The Third Eye, she has transformed comprehensive metaphysical and spiritual concepts into the most revered science fiction films of the 20th century. The Terminator and The Matrix films are among the most artistically phenomenal and financially profitable film franchises in Hollywood's history. These works have currently grossed over $25 billion dollars, won 4 Oscars, and continue to generate revenue internationally.
She is currently continuing her epic work in the upcoming Matrix 4 movie, which is destined to supersede the extraordinary success of The Matrix and The Terminator and establish her as one of the most profound master writers of the 21st century.
