While the Matrix sequels may not be held in the highest regard, the Matrix franchise has remained popular over the years.
When the news was revealed, it was surprising that Lana Wachowski had written the script for a direct sequel to the original trilogy. And even more surprising, Keanu Reeves will be back to star in it.
Of course, now that the movie is happening, and quite soon based on reports, fans are clamoring for information on this new project. Just what kind of story could The Matrix 4 possibly be telling?
It’s very ambitious. As it should be!Keanu Reeves
Not only is Reeves returning to play Neo, but his co-star Carrie-Anne Moss is also coming back to the franchise to play her popular character Trinity.
Both actors starred in the first three Matrix movies, all written and directed by Lana and Lilly Wachowski. Lana went on to create and direct the Netflix series Sense 8.
The fourth Matrix movie will be Lana’s first film project since the siblings directed 2015’s Jupiter Ascending.
