Keanu Reeves and Carrie Anne-Moss are making a fourth Matrix movie
I love Reeves and would like to see him in more big stuff, but I'm really not sure what to think about a fourth Matrix movie after all this time.Warner Bros. has*just announced*a fourth film in the*Matrix*series, with original stars Keanu Reeves and Carrie-Anne Moss set to reprise their iconic roles as Neo and Trinity, respectively. Lana Wachowski is set to write and direct the sequel.
The news comes after*rumors earlier this year*from*John Wick: Chapter 3director Chad Stahelski that the Wachowski sisters were working on a new installment in the franchise. But rumors about a new*Matrix*film have been swirling practically since the third installment —*The Matrix Revolutions*— was released in 2003.
REENTER THE MATRIX
That said, it appears that only Lana Wachowski is returning for the upcoming film, with her sister Lilly (who co-directed and co-wrote the original three films) absent from the announcement. Instead, screenwriters Aleksandar Hemon and David Mitchell are set to help produce the script alongside Lana.
“We could not be more excited to be re-entering*The Matrix*with Lana,” said Warner Bros. Pictures Group chairman Toby Emmerich, announcing the news. “Lana is a true visionary — a singular and original creative filmmaker — and we are thrilled that she is writing, directing and producing this new chapter in*The Matrix*universe.”
There are virtually no details yet as to what the*Matrix*sequel will entail plot-wise or even a release window, although*Variety*claims*production on the film will begin early next year.
