In 16 years after the trilogy, August of 2019, Concluded, Warner Bros. announced that Keanu Reeves and Carrie-Anne Moss are reprising their roles as Neo and Trinity in an upcoming Matrix 4. Given Hollywood loves reboots, and that we’re living in a Renaissance, the hype for the film directed and written by Lana Wachowski is pretty significant.
A couple of months after formally confirming the fourth episode of this franchise, Warner Bros. Pictures gave The Matrix 4 (as it is unofficially being called) launch date of May 21, 2021. It has been transferred to April 2, 2022.
In an intriguing piece of convergence (or possibly”Keanu-gence”), That date today has the film premiering on precisely the same weekend as John Wick: Chapter 4, Reeves’ other blockbuster franchise. It is quite probable that one of those movies will be moved, given both franchises’ popularity.
Generation on The Matrix 4 has begun, together with Lana Wachowski Returning to co-write and direct the entry in the franchise, that she and her sister generated.
“Many of these ideas Lilly and I explored 20 years ago about our Reality are even more relevant today,” Wachowski said in a statement. “I am quite pleased to have these characters back into my life and grateful for another chance to work with my brilliant friends.”
Some of those buddies include writer Aleksandar Hemon and David Mitchell, who co-wrote the Matrix 4 script alongside Wachowski. Along with their picture function, both Hemon and Mitchell are realized novelists, and both appeared in an episode of the Wachowskis’ Netflix show.
So far, it doesn’t seem like the other Wachowski sibling will most likely be included in The Matrix 4. Even though Warner Bros. seems to think the franchise is safe in Lana’s hands. “We couldn’t be prone to be reentering The Matrix with Lana,” said Warner Bros. Picture Group chairman Toby Emmerich. “Lana is a genuine visionary a singular and original revolutionary filmmaker and we are thrilled that she is writing, directing, and creating this new chapter in The Matrix universe.”
There’s a chance that John Wick director Chad Stahelski, Keanu Reeves’ stunt along with the stunt coordinator about the Matrix films, might return for the sequel. Before Warner Bros.’s official statement, Stahelski leaked expression, a fourth Matrix movie was in manufacturing and said he’d”put down anything I was doing to help” bring the sequel.
The Matrix would not be The Matrix without Keanu Reeves, who performed hacker-turned-digital-messiah Neo. Well, good news: Reeves is back, as is his Matrix Carrie-Anne Moss. Considering both characters’ fates in the conclusion of their first Matrix trilogy, the sequel will likely have to work out a smart strategy to reincorporate Neo and Trinity into the story, but that shouldn’t prove too difficult for a series that dabbles in mysticism, virtual reality, along with enormous plot twists.
The most recent addition to the cast is Spartacus alum, Ellen Hollman. No information about her role is known.
