Twenty years and many iterations of mobile smartphones later, it’s time to dial back in to The Matrix.
Variety reports that a fourth film set in The Matrix universe is on its way, announced by Warner Bros. Picture Group chairman Toby Emmerich.
Keanu Reeves and Carrie-Anne Moss will reprise their roles as Neo and Trinity, and Lana Wachowski is set to direct the film from a script by Aleksandar Hemon and David Mitchell.
“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.”
No word yet on when within the The Matrix’s timeline the film may be set, or whether Laurence Fishburne will reprise his role as Morpheus and truly reunite the three leads of the original trilogy.
But in the eternal words of Keanu Reeves: “You’re breathtaking!”
Oh, you know what we mean.
