Matrix 4 is happening with Keanu Reeves and Carrie-Anne Moss returning
It's official - we can all return to The Matrix. Yes, Warner Bros. has announced that they have given the go-ahead for another Matrix film and - most importantly - both Keanu Reeves and Carrie-Anne Moss are expected to revive their roles with co-creator Lana Wachowski back in the director's chair.
The announcement was officially made by Warner Bros chairman Toby Emmerich and now we can all get ready to be plugged back in with production eyed for the end of 2020.
The welcome news comes despite a nearly 17-years gap from the third installment of the franchise, The Matrix Revolutions, but with the confirmation that Wachowski is back to write and direct the film, it feels like it is in good hands - although the absence of her sister Lilly is notable.
Lana Wachowski told Variety in a statement that the sisters’ original shared vision for the franchise would be expanded. "Many of the ideals that Lilly and I explored 20 years ago about our reality are even more relevany now."
"I am very happy to have these characters back in my life and grateful for another chance to work with my brilliant friends."
