The 4th installment of the Matrix franchise, The Matrix Resurrections, is currently playing in theatres around the world. The sequel, which came out 18 years after the first Matrix film in 2003, caught many people off guard when first announced a few years ago.
One of them was the film’s lead actor, Keanu Reeves. In a current interview, the actor stated that he believes this is the final installment in the franchise and that director Lana Wachowski will not return for a fifth installment.
The first Matrix film, simply titled The Matrix, debuted in 1999 and quickly became worldwide. Its two sequels, which were shot back-to-back, were released four years later.
The Wachowskis directed all three films. Lana Wachowski eventually wrote the script for the fourth film, The Matrix Resurrections, released worldwide on December 22.
In a recent interview with Empire Magazine, the film’s lead star, Keanu Reeves, was asked if another Matrix film was “in the works.” “I don’t think so,” he said. If I had to cast a ballot—no, not a ballot, but a vote—I would. Lana, in my opinion, would not do another Matrix.”
Carrie-Anne Moss, Keanu’s co-star, was quick to add a word of caution to Keanu’s dismissal. “We thought the same thing about this one,” she added.
In response, Keanu stated that if Lana Wachowski did make a fifth Matrix film and ‘invited’ him to be a part of it, he would gladly participate. “I’m sorry, I spoke for you again! If she invites us again!” “I’m in if she invites me again,” Keanu said.
The Matrix Resurrections is directed by Lana Wachowski and stars Yahya Abdul Mateen II, Jessica Henwick, Jonathan Groff, Neil Patrick Harris, and two Indian actors, Priyanka Chopra, and Purab Kohli.
