The Wachowskis have to followup the groundbreaking trilogy. They have to. They must. Why not? There are still so many back stories that are worth delving into. Keanu Reeves mentioned in interviews that he's keen on reprising the role of Neo.
New York (The Verge) — John Wick 3 director says the Wachowskis are working on another Matrix film theverge.com/2019/5/10/1856….
In Hollywood, sequels, remakes, and reboots of big franchises have always been big business, and over the years, there’s been a lot of chatter about the potential comeback of one big property: The Matrix. A new report throws a bit more fuel on that particular fire, as John Wick: Chapter 3 director Chad Stahelski says the Wachowski siblings are working on a new installment in the series.
The original Matrix debuted in theaters 20 years ago, and the Wachowskis followed up with a pair of sequels, The Matrix: Reloaded and The Matrix: Revolutions, to mixed reviews. They also oversaw a series of comics; a video game, The Matrix Online, which was set in the aftermath of Revolutions; and The Animatrix, a series of animated shorts set in the Matrix universe. Revolutionscertainly leaves open the possibility of more stories as the war between humanity and machines came to a close with the entire Matrix getting a reboot. The Oracle and Architect’s final scene shows that there’s still some tension, but the peace will last “as long as it can.”
Rumors of a reboot or continuation of the franchise have circled for a couple of years. In 2017, The Hollywood Reportersuggested that Warner Bros. was working on a reboot of some sort, with Michael B. Jordan (Black Panther) potentially attached and Zak Penn (Ready Player One) tapped to write. Notably, that report indicated that the Wachowskis weren’t attached to the project.
Speaking to Yahoo! Movies, Stahelski suggests that not only is a Matrix film in the works, but that the Wachowskis are involved and that it would be a continuation of the original three films. — Andrew Liptak/@verge
