Whoa! Keanu Reeves Says Matrix 4 and 5 are Coming, Possibly in 3D – UPDATED


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.


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.

    News that I’ve been waiting for, for a long time. I can’t wait.

    Didn’t Neo die? Or is he going to be christ-like and ressurect within the Matrix?

    The “Hood” idea if done right and taken seriously can be very intriguing.

      Yes he died, Trinity died as well. Personally didn’t think the series went anywhere but down after the first one. Don’t see much good coming from a 4th and 5th.

    1. NO Neo didn’t die in the third one, he ascended human form. Last shot of the computers are from his point of view as they take his body away.

    2. I take all the movies as 1 movie and they all rocked. People who say that it went downhill after the first one, didn’t really like the first one for its content they just band wagoned the special fx craze and once they saw it, weren’t blown away the second time they saw the same graphics. Just like all the people who jumped on the bandwagon of saying “The 2nd and 3rd Just aren’t as deep as the 1st”. Horse shit. If you understood the first and not just the bandwagon of people saying it was deep, then you were smart enough to get the whole journey. (These statements are not aimed at ROCE, as he/she just stated an opinion, not basing it on either one of these rants lol…except you are wrong about NEO dying in the end).

    3. I also like the Hood Idea Ded and wonder if Will Smith is on board? What was the last thing he was in now? I feel like I’ve been without the Fresh Prince for a minute.

      For the most part I liked 2&3. “Reloaded” was extremely deep, sepecially the whole thing with the “Architect” at the end. “Revolutions” had the Superman/Dragonball fight that I wanted to see in “Dragonball Evolution” or “Superman Returns,” but also the Zion invasion was crazy. It was deep too, just didn’t go all the way down the rabbit hole the way “Reloaded” did. I took look at it as one story, and include “The Animatrix” as well. As long as they move forward with the story. If they do this it should be about how some humans resent others choosing to be released. So we’d have a group of humans, within the Matrix wrking with machines to get things back to the way they were, but another group, working with machines within and outside of the Matrix to keep the freedom that Neo and the rest fought for going.

      Neo is DEAD !!
      He is dead knowing he is just a pawn of the machine!
      There will be another the one oneday and the circle of false hope of the human to win against the machine will continue .

      Agent Smith actually new stuff that could interrupt the cycle and could END both human and machine!
