The Matrix is returning with original creator Lana Wachowski at the helm.
After a very long hiatus, the sci-fi franchise is set to return with a fourth installment.
The untitled feature will star original leads Keanu Reeves as Neo and Carrie-Anne Moss as Trinity. In addition to directing Wachowski, will also pen and produce the film.
“We could not be more excited to be re-entering The Matrix with Lana,” said Toby Emmerich, chairman of Warner Bros Pictures Group. “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.”
“Many of the ideas Lilly and I explored 20 years ago about our reality are even more relevant now,” added Wachowski. “I’m very happy to have these characters back in my life and grateful for another chance to work with my brilliant friends.”
The Matrix trilogy launched in 1999 and wrapped in 2005. The three films have earned more than $1.6 billion at the global box office.
