Can you imagine if the Wachowskis actually directed The Matrix 4? While it hasn’t been confirmed yet, Hollywood might just be blessed with the greatest film installment ever. Just imagine how savage Neo would be 20 years later. Take a look at why the Wachowskis are rumored to be shooting The Matrix reboot.
A few months back, the Internet collectively lost their mind when screenwriter Zac Penn tweeted about a potential addition to the science fiction series. Teasing a so-called “franchise extension,” Penn revealed that the mythical Matrix 4 could even take viewers into the realm of new characters. As if that wasn’t enough, Chad Stahelski, the director of John Wick 3, added some more fuel to the fire with some juicy comments.
Although Stahelski’s team has since recanted his statements, they did confirm that he was referring to a “hypothetical scenario.” However, Stahelski’s remarks are nonetheless exciting AF. During an interview with Yahoo Movies UK, he shared that, “I’m super happy that the Wachowskis are not just doing a Matrix, but they’re expanding what we all loved. And if it’s anywhere near the level of what they’ve already done, it wouldn’t take more than a call to go, ‘Hey, we want you to be a stunt guy’ and I would probably go and get hit by a car.” Fingers crossed!
Path Of Neo
When pressed about the possibility that the Wachowskis were actually creating The Matrix 4, Stahelski responded that “I’m not sure of the overall. I’m not sure if Lana is.” After Yahoo Movies UK asked if the Wachowskis were even part of the prospective reboot, he stated, “Yeah. And if they wanted help, I would absolutely put down whatever I was doing to help them.” So there we have it – it’s a big fat maybe so far. But fans can dream, right?
While Keanu Reeves has famously kept mum on his involvement with any future Matrix movies, he did spill the tea that he might consider it if he felt a cosmic connection with the script. He divulged, “That would be a gift. I wouldn’t say no to that. Yeah.” He continued, “I think when you get to revisit a story and continue to tell a story, you’re bringing in the past and the work that you’ve done.” He then disclosed, “So for me, it’s about placing the emotional state of where you are into who the character is. How do they feel? How do they think? And then putting on the suit if the costume really becomes the exterior that you fill in.” Tell us more, Neo!
Enter The Matrix
Starting in 1999, the OG Matrix film was clearly ahead of its time. With its onslaught of stunning visual effects, the trippy movie basically blew an entire generation’s minds. Garnering a whopping four Oscars and grossing $463 million, you better believe that fans demanded a sequel. Miraculously, the films The Matrix Reloaded and The Matrix Revolutions were both premiered in 2003. Not to mention that the movie series led to a ton of books and video games, including Enter The Matrix.
Yet, the possibility of a franchise extension seems like fan fiction at this point. Although there hasn’t been any official word on the subject, the internet still believes that the Wachowskis could be involved in launching the latest Matrix installment. We’ll only know if they’re involved for sure when they comment on the matter. Until then, we can only visualize Neo, Trinity, and Morpheus donning their epic black suits once again. And for now, that may be all the hope that the internet really needs.
