The iconic red pill and blue pill scene, Neo dodging bullets, and the fantastic cinematography are only some of the reasons why the matrix franchise was a box-office hit. There’s just something about the story and the portrayal of the characters that captivated the audience.
The mix of sci-fi, cyberpunk, and martial arts action present throughout the trilogy became the staple of what a good sci-fi movie SHOULD be.
The trilogy may have ended back in 2003, but the fanbase is still waiting for the fourth installment hinted at the end of The Matrix: Revolutions. It only took 17 long years to finally get an official announcement that the fourth Matrix movie is confirmed and currently in the works!
The beauty of it all? Keanu Reeves and many other beloved Matrix actors are returning to film the movie that everyone, young and old, love!
Production and What To Expect
Unlike the previous installments of The Matrix, this one will be directed by only Lana Wachowski. However, Lana promises that the earlier chapters’ insanity and craziness will not be missing in the fourth movie.
With the help of previous Matrix stunt performers and John Wick directors Chad Stahelski and David Leitch, they aim to make this fourth movie live up to fan expectations!
Old favorites like Keanu Reeves’ Neo and Carrie Anne-Moss’ Trinity. The fourth movie also has many new faces, like Jessica Henwick and Neil Patrick Harris!
The Fan Favorite – Keanu Reeves
The person who has been in the franchise ever since 1999, Keanu Reeves, comes back for the fourth movie as Neo for what people are expecting to be the best movie in the installment.
The beloved actor never actually expected the day to come when The four would be in production. After 17 years of being left in the dark, he says he decided to go back because of the beauty of the script.
According to Keanu, the depth, level of integrity, and the overall artistry of the movie were a gift. He sacrificed a lot to make sure this movie becomes a hit, though, even pushing back John Wick Chapter 4 to make sure that fans don’t have to choose over one Keanu Reeves movie!
Like many blockbuster movies, the movie’s script and plot are being held as a tightly hidden secret, only being known by the people involved in the film. Those involved in the movie also sealed their lips and don’t seem to be leaking things any time soon!
However, based on the amount of praise it’s getting and the hype that actors are showing towards the film’s production, it’s safe to assume that it’s going to be a hit.
Set to be released in the theaters on May 21, 2021, fans are awaiting the return of one of the most iconic sci-fi series ever to be released.
