Over the past few years, we’ve seen our fair share of unexpected sequels. Indiana Jones and the Crystal Skull, Live Free or Die Hard, and Rocky Balboa are just a few films that have gone where other franchises wouldn’t dare go. They all went past the trilogy mark, and now we’re hearing reports that another popular film series could follow in their footsteps. Are you interested in seeing The Matrix Part 4 and 5?
Over at AICN, they received some important news from a reader called “El Nino” regarding a key note speech Keanu Reeves gave at The London School of Performing Arts. It was there that he dropped the bomb that The Wachowskis already have the layout for a fourth and fifth film in The Matrix series. Here’s what a portion of the email revealed:
Says he met the Wachowskis… for lunch over Christmas, and stated that they had completed work on a two-picture script treatments that would see him return to the world of the matrix as Neo. Says the Wachowskis 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. Wachowskis are working on a movie called “Cloud Atlas” at the moment, once that concludes they will talk again.
To be honest, we don’t need more from The Matrix. Revolutions was God-awful and Reloaded was all show and no pay off…literally. Do you remember the ending to that film? Let it go people.
Do you want to see more from The Matrix?
