Nearly 16 years after the third film in the Matrix trilogy (The Matrix Revolutions) was released, Warner Bros announced that a fourth movie is in the proverbial pipeline, on Tuesday. The fourth movie will reportedly see the comeback of most of the actors, including Keanu Reeves who starred as Neo in the trilogy.
Carrie-Anne Moss will also reprise her role as Trinity, although her character had died in the final instalment of the Matrix series, released in 2003. As with the first three movies, original creator, Lana Wachowski will be helming the movie’s development.
Wachowski will write, direct and also produce the film. Wachowski and her sibling, Lilly (then known as Laurence and Andrew Paul respectively) had written and directed the first three parts of the movies. Speaking about Lana Wachowski’s involvement with the newest instalment, Toby Emmerich, the chairman of Warner Bros said, “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”.
The first part of the sci-fi film titled The Matrix was released in 1999. The movie revolves around the battle between humans and artificial intelligence systems. Collectively, the three films had box-office collections in the range of $1.6 billion. The second part of the movie titled, The Matrix Reloaded was released in 2003 as well.
