They said it couldn't be done, but Keanu Reeves is back as leather-laden legend Neo with a fourth Matrix film recently announced.
20 years after the release of the first Matrix film, news has surfaced that Lana Wachowski will write and direct a fourth film, with Reeves and Carrie-Anne Moss returning as Neo and Trinity - the characters they played in the original trilogy.
Warner Bros. Picture Group chairman Toby Emmerich made the announcement on Tuesday.
“We could not be more excited to be re-entering ‘The Matrix’ with Lana,” said Emmerich. “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.”
Sources say the film is set to begin production early next year.
The original trilogy was released from 1999 through 2003, with three installations: The Matrix, The Matrix Reloaded and The Matrix Revolutions.
