It’s been fourteen years since the release of ‘The Matrix Revolutions’, the third film in the Wachowskis’ hugely popular sci-fi series, and now Keanu Reeves has admitted he’s ready to make a FOURTH film… on a few conditions.
We asked the 52-year-old star, who can be seen alongside his ‘The Matrix’ co-star Laurence Fishburne in this week’s ‘John Wick Chapter Two’, what it would take to get him involved in another ‘Matrix’ film.
“The Wachowskis would have to be involved,” he told Yahoo Movies.
“They would have to write it and direct it. And then we’d see what the story is, but yeah, I dunno, that’d be weird, but why not?”
“People die, stories don’t,” adds Keanu, “people in stories don’t.”
Anyone who’s seen the ‘Matrix’ trilogy know that the series ends with the death of Keanu’s Neo, the Matrix rebooted, with the war between man and the machines at a ceasefire, but the final scene leaves it tantalisingly open for Neo to return.
Sati asks The Oracle, “Will we ever see him again?” to which she replies “I suspect so. Someday.”
And with reboot fever running rampant in Hollywood, “someday” for ‘The Matrix 4’ may happen sooner than we expected.
Just recently Keanu reunited with Carrie Anne Moss and Laurence Fishburne at the ‘John Wick Chapter Two’ premiere, and they still looked the part.
