    the Matrix Resurrections

    Keanu talking at key note speech at the London school of performing Arts university

    extra source info

    Quote Quoting El Nino
    Says he met the Wachowski's, 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. Wachowski's are working on a movie called "Cloud Atlas" at the moment, once that concludes they will talk again.
    So would these not be sequels? :|

    If it's what it should always have been - fully-aware-and-in-control Neo kicking Agent ass in the Matrix - I say go for it. It's not as completely pointless as Clone Wars, not by a long shot.

    But where would these movies take place? In between the Matrix and Reloaded? They can't be sequels can they?

    I think he was subtly implying that the sequels sucked and that he "owes" the fans good sequels.

    I was actually just reading about Matt Damon and he’s like, ‘There’s a culture of outrage.’ I’m like, ‘Well, they have a reason to be outraged.’ I think it’s a lot of dudes just being scared. They’re like, ‘What if I did something and I didn’t realize it?’ I’m like, ‘Deal with it.’

    I thought Reloaded was great and arguably has the best action sequence in all of cinema.

    So do I, but that's clearly not the general consensus.

    Well in any case, then this wouldn't be a sequel, but more of a filler movie that would be placed in between the Matrix and Reloaded and has Neo just kicking lots of ass? Seems too generic and boring to me...

    Although there was a lot of material between the movies and games. The time frame would be all jammed up though. They couldn't film in Zion yet, since the approach to Zion was greatly exaggerated in Reloaded. I suppose they could start the movie immediately after the Matrix ended?

    Or that Zion is in another Matrix all along and when he sacrificed himself in Revolutions, Neo woke up in another layer, where he meets Cobb who tells him it's all a dream and together they go back up another layer, where they meet Xzibit.

    Yes because Xzibit is in The X Files: I Want to Believe, which makes me Want to Believe that Neo isn't dead and they're all gonna meet up in a sub-Matrix computer program?

    More interested in this. I would label that book unadaptable.

    I liked the sequels. While the Wachowski's kept promoting them as being just as revolutionary to action films as their bullet-time technique was, I never really thought this was true.

    I thought they took the still-rough-around-the-edges technology, and tried to refine it and apply it in different ways. Nothing was really "new" anymore - there was nothing that, like bullet-time, audiences had never seen.


    I have to admit I'm more interested in seeing more stories in the world of The Matrix than I am in more Star Wars movies. Hell, I'm not particularly interested in more Avatar movies, either.

    I say if they have some good ideas and Keanu's on-board, full steam ahead!

    Can't stop the Hollywood machine anyway so I'm praying for the best. Reloaded I liked more than enough and yes, at least one sequence is plain mindblowing. Possibly the only sequence. But godarnit, that whole Matrix story is a proverbial pea soup.

    Last time I saw both of the sequels, I actually found both to be disappointing, sure, but I liked each of them, even though I currently prefer the 3rd one to the 2nd. I'm not in the mood to revisit either one for the time being, so I have no idea if my opinion would change with multiple viewings-I have seen the first film numerous times, and I dig it a good deal even though I no longer find it to be as amazing as I once thought it was years ago after viewing it on DVD in high school.

    Can't say I'm disappointed about them not doing a 4th movie, though. Just let the series end and be done with it.

    WB and the Wachowski siblings are in the early stages of planning out a prequel trilogy, with the plan to have the first film in theaters in 2017.

    If the Wachowskis are involved, then awesome. Especially if they decide to dig into something like the origin mythology previously only touched on in the Animatrix's "Second Renaissance" (and apparently also in some comics they helped write, but I haven't come across those).

    If other people are jumping on board to helm this and put their spin on it, then I can't find it in myself to care. Maybe in a couple of decades, but not this soon.
    Last 11 things I really enjoyed:

    Speed Racer (Wachowski/Wachowski, 2008)
    Safe (Haynes, 1995)
    South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut (Parker, 1999)
    Beastie Boys Story (Jonze, 2020)
    Bad Trip (Sakurai, 2020)
    What's Up Doc? (Bogdanovich, 1972)
    Diva (Beineix, 1981)
    Delicatessen (Caro/Jeunet, 1991)
    The Hunger (Scott, 1983)
    Pineapple Express (Green, 2008)
    Chungking Express (Wong, 1994)

    This is one of those "I'll believe it when I see it" projects.
