‘Matrix 4’ Is Happening With Keanu Reeves, Carrie-Anne Moss And Lana Wachowski
Lana Wachowski is set to write and direct a fourth film set in the world of The Matrix , with Keanu Reeves and Carrie-Anne Moss reprising their roles as Neo and Trinity, according to Variety.
Warner Bros. Pictures and Village Roadshow Pictures will produce and globally distribute the film. 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. 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.
Meanwhile, Wachowski said:
Many of the ideas Lilly [Wachowski] 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.
Sources say the film is eyed to begin production at the top of 2020.
Plot details are currently unknown, as is how the role of Morpheus will be handled, originally played by Laurence Fishburne. Some sources say the role may be recast for a younger take.
The first Matrix had its 20th anniversary this year, marked by special screenings at select AMC locations starting on Aug. 30.
