Fans have been wishing for a Matrix 4 movie for ages. Periodically rumours of a reboot or continuation pops up by these have little to no official confirmation attached to it. But now it seems like another Matrix movie is indeed happening. WB is actually moving forward with The Matrix 4. Matrix 4 will star Keanu Reeves and Carrie-Anne Moss. Lana Wachowski will be directing.
The Matrix 4 Is In Development
As reported by Variety, WB and Village Roadshow Pictures have confirmed plans to make The Matrix 4 with Reeves and Moss reprising their roles as Neo and Trinity. Wachowski directed the original Matrix trilogy with her sibling Lilly and will be again sitting on the director’s seat for this one. The script for Matrix 4 has been cowritten with Aleksander Hemon and David Mitchell. Production is slated to begin in 2020. Here’s what she had to say about the news:
“Many of the ideas Lilly and I explored 20 years ago about our reality are even more relevant now. I’m very happy to have these characters back in my life and grateful for another chance to work with my brilliant friends”.
What Will The Matrix 4 Be About?
It’s not yet known what The Matrix 4 will actually be about or if Laurence Fishburne will return as Morpheus. Variety’s sources say that Morpheus may be recast for a younger version of the character but this isn’t confirmed. Unsurprisingly those sources also report that Reeves’s recent success at the box office and his rise in popularity spurred WB to move forward with the movie.
Keanu Reeves has been enjoying something of a career Renaissance himself thanks to his role as John Wick. Apart from that, in 209 he has also appeared in Toy Story 4 as he voiced the 2970s Canadian stuntman toy Duke Caboom. He also starred in the rom-com Always Be my Maybe where he played a fictionalized version of himself. But there’s more on Reeves’s table since he is currently reprising his role as Theodore “Ted” Logan in the long awaited Bill & Ted Face The Music.
With the leaps made in CGI technology we can only hope that Matrix 4 will live up to expectations and that director Wachowski will bring something amazing to the table.
