The Matrix franchise is coming up with a fourth live-action film featuring the golden duo of Keanu Reeves and Carrie-Anne Moss as Neo and Trinity.
Lana Wachowski is set to direct the film and co-write the script with Aleksander Hemon and David Mitchell.
“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,” said Warner Bros. Picture Group chairman Toby Emmerich.
“Many of the ideas Lilly and I explored 20 years ago about our reality are even more relevant now. I’m very happy to have these characters back in my life and grateful for another chance to work with my brilliant friends,” Wachowski said.
The three previous films - The Matrix (1999), The Matrix Reloaded (2003) and The Matrix Revolutions (2003) - have earned more than $1.6 billion at the global box office and were all top-10 domestic hits in their respective years of release.
The Matrix Revolutions was also the first film ever to be released simultaneously in every major country at the same time all around the world.
Special 20th-Anniversary screenings of The Matrix are scheduled to be held on August 30 at select AMC Theatres locations across the US.
The film’s plot details haven’t been revealed yet, and given 2003’s The Matrix Revolutions ending, theorizing on the latest plot is not going to be any simple.
Production on the film is scheduled to begin in early 2020.
