Original stars Keanu Reeves and Carrie-Anne Moss will return for a fourth film, due to be released in 2020
The Matrix is coming back to theaters with original co-writer and co-director Lana Wachowski at the helm. Production is scheduled to begin early next year.
Soon the viewing public will get another glimpse at the world—and fantasy-world-within-a-world—that made a generation of moviegoers examine their surroundings more skeptically and critically, all while lapping up gorgeous fight choreography, mind-bending visual effects, and the enveloping coolness of a film awash in sunglasses and tailored leather.
Warner Bros. Pictures and Village Roadshow Pictures will produce and globally distribute the film. Warner Bros. Picture Group chairman Toby Emmerich made the announcement on Tuesday.
“We could not be more excited to be re-entering ‘The Matrix’ with Lana,” said Emmerich. “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.”
In addition to Wachowski, the script was also written by Aleksandar Hemon and David Mitchell. Wachowski is also producing with Grant Hill.
