(Also, discussing the issue of race/lack of black people in John Hughes movies is pointless and has nothing to do with John Hughes. You're just touching on the overall lack of black people in movies in general.)

About a decade ago, I rewrote Matrix in my head. In my version, Neo and Trinity (although I'd rename all the characters (and replace all the actors)) were linked through an "origin accident", possibly a simple wiring error in the Matrix. So "Neo" would wake up outside as "Trinity", and then meet himself (i.e. the person who is "Trinity" inside the Matrix).
It would give a wonderful spin to lines that are actually in the movie, e.g. when they meet for the first time in the club and he says "I thought you were a guy". Or at the end of the film, instead of Morpheus saying "He's the one", he might say "They are one".
Plus, years after I did this re-imagining of the film, I read that one of the Wachowskis had actually undergone sex change, which made it almost weird that they didn't think of that twist, if only in some draft.
