We’d previously heard how a new Matrix movie was in development, although it was expected to only have loose ties to the original Matrix trilogy. Well now, there’s the awesome news that this new movie will indeed be a straight-up Matrix 4.
Warner Bros. Pictures has confirmed that this new Matrix film will see Keanu Reeves and Carrie-Anne Moss back as Neo and Trinity, and Lana Wachowski will be on writing and directing duties.
The WB’s Toby Emmerich enthused, “We could not be more excited to be re-entering the Matrix with Lana. 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.”
Production on the film will begin early next year, with plot details being kept under wraps at this early stage.
Expect more on this new Matrix picture as we get it.
