There have been rumors on the web for some time suggesting that there may be something wrong, but for many fans, they were too good to be true. Today it has changed, because we have just got the official confirmation of the film.
The Matrix is undoubtedly one of the most iconic films in history, which brought its creators, the Wachowski sisters (at the time of the debut of the first installment in 1999, to the Wachowski brothers), as well as the performer of one of the main roles, huge fame and money – you can not hide that Keanu Reeves will remain primarily Neo for the rest of his life. And although the continuation of 2003, i technologi.e. Matrix: Reactivation and Matrix: Revolutions no longer enjoyed such an estimate as the one, it can not be hidden that all fans of the series were counting on the next installments.
And soon their dreams will come true, although they had to wait 16 years for it – today we have been confirmed that Matrix 4 will be created and directed by Lana Wachowski. Equally important, Keanu Reeves and Carrie-Anne Moss, who plays the role of Trinity, will also return to their roles (we have to wait for the extended cast list). According to the head of Warner Bros Studios, Toby Emmerich: – We could not be more excited to enter Matrix with Lana again. She is a true visionary – a unique and original filmmaker – and we are delighted that she writes, directs and produces this new chapter in the Matrix universe.
And what is the progress of the work? Lana is currently adapting the ideas she had previously developed with her sister Lily to a new script created in collaboration with The Lazarus Project creator Aleksandar Hemon and writer David Mitchel. As Lana says: – Many of the ideas that I and Lily explored 20 years ago about our reality are now even more relevant than then. What’s more, I am very happy that characters important to me come back to my life and I have a chance to work with my wonderful friends again.
This news comes to us after months of speculation about this project, which fueled director John Wick 3, Chad Stahelski, who also worked on the Matrix. As for the cast, Keanu Reeves repeated many times that he would be interested in returning to the role of Neo, but only under Wachowski’s wings. As he said two years ago: – They would have to write and direct it, and then I would see the story. It’s weird, but why not? I don’t know … People are dying, but stories are not!
