Lana Wachowski (n. Laurence "Larry" Wachowski; 21 iunie 1965) și Andrew Paul "Andy" Wachowski (n. 29 decembrie 1967), cunoscuți profesional împreună ca the Wachowskis sau ca Frații Wachowski, sunt niște frați americani, regizori, scenariști și producători.

Ei și-au făcut debutul regizorial în 1996 cu filmul Bound, și au câștigat faima internațională cu cel de-al doilea film The Matrix (1999), pentru care ei au câștigat Premiul Saturn pentru cel mai bun regizor. Ei au scenarizat și regizat și cele două sequel-uri ale fimului, The Matrix Reloaded și The Matrix Revolutions (ambele în 2003), și s-au implicat foarte mult în scenarizarea și producția altor lucrări din franciză.

Ca urmare a succesului comercial a seriei Matrix, ei au scenarizat și produs filmul din 2006 V for Vendetta, iar în 2008 au lansat filmul Speed Racer. Cel mai recent film al lor, Cloud Atlas, bazat pe romanul cu același nume de David Mitchell, co-scenarizat și co-regizat de Tom Tykwer, wa fost lansat pe 26 octombrie 2012. Următorul lor film Jupiter Ascending, și seria televizată Sense8, pe care le-au creat, sunt ambele programate a fi lansate în 2014.
