It's been twenty years since the film's original release. And now it seems we're getting a fourth instalment from 'The Matrix' franchise. This one is no remake, reboot or spin-off, but a continuation of the original story with - most importantly - the return of Keanu Reeves as Neo and Carrie-Anne Moss as Trinity, the Hollywood Reporter says.
The film will be helmed by Lana Wachowski, who created the franchise with her sister Lilly. Lana has reportedly penned the new script alongside sci-fi writers Aleksandar Hemon and David Mitchell. Lana said,
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.
The original arrived in 1997, with sequels The Matrix Reloaded and The Matrix Revolutions both following in 2003. The news of Reeves' return will definitely make fans happy. As it would be hard to imagine a Matrix movie without him. Couple of months back the actor came back to theater with the third sequel of the action movie 'John Wick'. It seems the 54-year-old shows no signs of taking a break just yet, and what could be more merrier for us.
