I’ve been saying it for the last ten years: The world needs another Matrix movie. Keanu needs it. The Wachowskis needs it. Laurence Fishburne needs it. Hell, Carrie‑Anne Moss definitely does. We need The Matrix 4.
With Keanu Reeves and Laurence Fishburne teaming up again on John Wick 2, talks about another Matrix sequel have surfaced. While being interviewed by the LA Times about John Wick 2, both actors expressed their interest in making another film.
Fishburne: It’s true. People always ask me, “Will there be another ‘Matrix’? Is there more?” If we were to ever do something like that, can you imagine the pressure we’d be under?
Reeves: [smiling] Yeah, it would be awesome! You’ve got to go into the fire!
The first Matrix film was released back in 1999 and followed with two successful sequels, The Matrix Reloaded and The Matrix: Revolutions in 2003. The trilogy ended on a bit of a cliffhanger, with many fans pondering on the meaning of the finale. Is Neo dead? Will Neo return?
There were rumours in 2014 that The Wachowskis were working on expanding the franchise for Warner Bros. in the same way Disney expanded the Star Wars franchise. Of course, it seems those rumours were untrue. Sadly, nothing has surfaced. Let’s hope the team realises the value of the franchise and return to Matrix 4.
