THE MATRIX Fourth instalment announced

Twenty years after The Matrix first hit cinemas, fans can prepare themselves to go down the rabbit hole again with a fourth instalment of the films. The blockbuster franchise is set to return for the first time since The Matrix Revolutions in 2003, with original stars Keanu Reeves and Carrie-Anne Moss reprising their roles as Neo and Trinity.

The sci-fi movie will be directed once again by Lana Wachowski, written by Aleksandar Hemon and David Mitchell, and produced by Warner Bros. and Village Roadshow.

“We could not be more excited to be re-entering The Matrix with Lana,” confirmed Warner Bros. chairman Toby 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.”

The first three movies in The Matrix franchise; The Matrix, The Matrix Reloaded and The Matrix Revolutions, were colossal in the late nineties and early 2000s, making more than $AU2 billion at the box office.

All three films were written and directed by Wachowski and her sister, Lilly, and starred Reeves and Moss.

“Many of the ideas Lilly 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,” Wachowski said.

Production on the fourth instalment of The Matrix is scheduled to begin in early 2020.
