MATRIX fans around the world can’t contain their excitement at news the film franchise is making a FOURTH movie.
We take a look at what you can expect from the new film and who will be starring in it.
When will Matrix 4 be released?
No release date for the new film has been confirmed, however, according to sources, filming is expected to begin at the start of 2020.
The hit franchise has grossed a combined $1.6billion at the box office and fans have been clamouring for another film for years.
The original film was released 20 years ago and told the story of Neo and his discovery that humanity was trapped in a simulated reality.
It proved a major hit and spawned two sequels – The Matrix Reloaded and The Matrix Revolutions.
Who will be starring in Matrix 4?
The full cast is yet to be revealed, but we do know TWO major characters will be back.
The film wouldn’t be the same without Keanu Reeves who has been confirmed to return as Neo.
Carrie-Ann Moss is also returning as Trinity and writer Lana Wachowski is delighted to be working with the original cast members again.
She said: “Many of the ideas Lilly (Lana’s sister) and I explored 20 years ago about our reality are even more relevant now. I’m very happy to have these characters back in my life and grateful for another chance to work with my brilliant friends.”
What will happen in Matrix 4?
It’s not yet known what the plot of the film will be.
Lana Wachowski — the Chicago-based co-creator of the record-breaking and reality-bending world of The Matrix — is set to write, direct and produce the new film.
“I’m very happy to have these characters back in my life and grateful for another chance to work with my brilliant friends,” Wachowski said in a release.
While there is plenty of excitement to see where Wachowski will take the franchise, some fans have expressed reservations after the third film was neatly wrapped up with both Trintiy and Neo dying.
