Warner bros launched the continuation of the “Matrix”. Keanu Reeves and Carrie-Anne Moss will return to the roles of Neo and Trinity, and the director will be Lana Wachowski. This was reported by Variety, citing the chairman of the board of Warner Bros. Toby Emmerich.
Lana Wachowski will write the script, and will also act as a producer and director of the film. Alexandar Hermon and David Mitchell, screenwriters of Sense8, one of Wachowski’s latest projects, will also work on the story.
Filming plans to begin in 2020. The previous three parts, released in 1999 and 2003, raised $ 1.6 billion internationally.
Many of the ideas that Lilly and I explored 20 years ago about our reality have now become even more relevant. I am very happy to bring these characters back to my life and am grateful for another chance to work with my brilliant friends.

As noted in Variety, the studio has long tried to return to the Matrix, but the development of the sequel was complicated by the complex ownership structure. However, the process accelerated amid successful gatherings of “John Wick 3”, “Toy Story 4”, and a script from Wachowski, which made the studio management and Keanu Reeves think about a possible return.
