Keanu Reeves and Carrie-Anne Moss Will Return For MATRIX 4 with Lana Wachowski Directing
Holy shit! I’ve got some super radical news to share with you for Matrix 4! Keanu Reeves and Carrie-Anne Moss are set to reprise their roles of Neo and Trinity in the film and Lana Wachowski is set to write and direct it!
This is huge news that I’m super excited about! I was really hoping that this fourth Matrix film would see the return of Reeves and Moss! I love the Matrix franchise, especially the first film, and I’m excited to see that the story of Neo will continue!
Warner Bros. Picture Group chairman Toby Emmerich made the announcement saying, “We could not be more excited to be re-entering ‘The Matrix’ with Lana. 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.”
Wachowski added, “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.”
WB has been trying to get this project off the ground for the past couple years and it looks like things finally came together with their dream team. The script is also being worked on by Aleksandar Hemon and David Mitchell. According to Variety, the film is eyed to begin production at the top of 2020.
There are no details to share in regards to the story or what role Morbius will have in it. Sources say that the role may be recast with a younger actor playing a younger version of the character, “but that element has still not been made clear.”
What do you all think about Reeves, Moss, and Wachowski all coming back for Matrix 4?
