UPDATED: According to Screen Rant, who reached out to the English school where Reeves supposedly made his appearance and to Warner Bros., as well as Reeves’ rep, the below story is entirely fabricated. Oh well.
———-ORIGINAL POST BELOW———–
While over in Jolly ol England promoting his latest film, “Henry’s Crime”, Keanu Reeves took time out from his busy schedule promoting the flick and training for “47 Ronin” (he’s apparently two months into a six-month training program), Reeves also dropped some major news in regards to “The Matrix” franchise. According to The Keanu, the Wachowskis recently told him that they just finished a “two picture script treatment” for more “Matrix” movies that would see him returning as Neo. Can this be? Someone was there and says it’s true, so, uh, you know, it might be.
Via AICN, a scooper sent this in:
Says he met the Wachowski’s (no emphasis on the word brothers), for lunch over Christmas and stated that they had completed work on a two picture script treatment that would see him return to the world of the matrix as Neo. Says the brothers 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 revolutionise the action genre like the first movie.
Interesting. Reeves also confirms that the Wachowskis have sold their “urban” take on the Robin Hood legend called “Hood” to Warner Bros. for a cool $5 million, and that Will Smith will indeed be headlining.
Meanwhile, the Wachowskis have “Cloud Atlas” on the horizon, and is currently still developing “Cobalt Neural 9″, their “Bush is Evil and War is Bad and Everyone’s Gay” movie which will, no doubt, win lots of awards if it ever gets made, which seems likely given that the boys (ahem, boy and girl) are still pretty flushed from the three previous “Matrix” movies.
In any case, remember how great the first “The Matrix” movie was? I do.
