Update:Keanu Reeves says two more Matrix films could be on the horizon
Posted by: Kristy Sturdivant
An interesting conversation with Keanu Reeves took place where he mentioned that there may just be two more films in the MATRIX franchise on the horizon, this time in 3D. An email from a reader of another site asked Mr. Reeves about his upcoming projects while Reeves was promoting another film, here is what the email said:
[Keanu] says he met the Wachowski’s (no emphasis on the word brothers), for lunch over Christmas and stated that they had completed work on a two picture script treatment that would see him return to the world of the Matrix as Neo. Says the brothers have met with Jim Cameron to discuss the pro’s and con’s of 3D and are looking to deliver something which has never been seen again. Keanu stated that he still has an obligation to the fans to deliver a movie worthy of the title THE MATRIX and he swears this time that the treatment will truly revolutionize the action genre like the first movie. Wachowski’s are working on a movie called CLOUD ATLAS at the moment, once that concludes they will talk again.
There is a possibility that this could be false information, but it sounds legit right now. This is surprising to hear since most audiences didn’t really enjoy the last installment in the MATRIX franchise, but this could be exactly why the Wachowski’s want to revisit it. And if they are getting hints from James Cameron on how to maximize their use of 3D in the film it might be pretty good. So here’s where we’d like to hear from you guys– do you think there needs to be another film or two about the Matrix universe? Or is it dead and the Wachowski’s need to move onto other projects? Right now they’re supposedly working on a ROBIN HOOD project that may star Will Smith.
UPDATED: Turns out Keanu Reeves never gave this interview and we’ll have to peg this rumor on an overzealous reader/writer. No more Matrix movies are in progress at this time.
