The Matrix film reboot in the works

- Keanu Reeves is up for The Matrix 4 (exclusive)

It’s been fourteen years since the release of ‘The Matrix Revolutions’, the third film in the Wachowskis’ hugely popular sci-fi series, and now Keanu Reeves has admitted he’s ready to make a FOURTH film... on a few conditions.

We asked the 52-year-old star, who can be seen alongside his ‘The Matrix’ co-star Laurence Fishburne in this week’s ‘John Wick Chapter Two’, what it would take to get him involved in another ‘Matrix’ film.

“The Wachowskis would have to be involved,” he told Yahoo Movies.

“They would have to write it and direct it. And then we’d see what the story is, but yeah, I dunno, that’d be weird, but why not?”

“People die, stories don’t,” adds Keanu, “people in stories don’t.”


- 'The Matrix' Reboot in the Works at Warner Bros. (Exclusive)

More Matrix? Bet on it.

It’s still not clear what shape the project will take, but sources tell The Hollywood Reporter that Warner Bros. is in the early stages of developing a relaunch of The Matrix, the iconic 1999 sci-fi movie that is considered one of the most original films in cinematic history, with Zak Penn in talks to write a treatment.

Sources say there is potential interest in Michael B. Jordan to star, but much must be done before the project is ready to go.

At this point, the Wachowski siblings, who wrote and directed the original and its two sequels, are not involved and the nature of their potential engagement with a new version has not been determined. Certainly, Warners would want the two filmmakers to give at minimum a blessing to the nascent project. The studio had no comment.

Joel Silver, who produced the original trilogy, is said to have approached Warners about the idea of mining The Matrix for a potential new film. However, Silver sold his interest in all his movies to the studio in 2012 for about $30 million, according to sources. Warners is said to be leery of including him in any meaningful role, as he not only has a reputation for budget-control issues, but apparently has a strained relationship with the Wachowskis. The siblings hold much more meaning for fans than the producer. Silver's reps did not immediately respond to a request for comment.


Red pill or blue pill?

I agree! I do not have any idea why they are want to 'reboot' this movie. The Matrix is one of the coolest films ever created. The reason is simple I guess - MONEY :/ It will be crap in my opinion.

- Exclusive: Zak Penn Wants To Expand The Matrix Universe

I’ve been working on Matrix right now. Which is in...a phase right now. That’s a franchise I desperately want to see brought back and, I can’t go in to too much detail, but I’ve been harassing Warner Bros. for years to try to get it going again so that’s one thing I’m working on and I’ve been working on a bunch of other things too.

I will fight people who don’t under...look, I think OASIS (the interconnected virtual space in Ready Player One) is similar, both the Matrix and OASIS are similar in that they are brilliant ideas for universes. And they are not, you know, when it came out about Matrix, people were like ‘Oh no, there going to reboot Matrix’ I was like, Why, I’m not insane. I mean, the Matrix is still one of my favorite...they’d re-release The Matrix and people would go see it.


Not a "reboot". Better.

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,” said Emmerich. “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.” In addition to Wachowski, the script was also written by Aleksandar Hemon and David Mitchell. Wachowski is also producing with Grant Hill. Sources say the film is eyed to begin production at the top of 2020.
