Keanu Reeves hints at new Matrix films

Keanu Reeves has suggested two new Matrix films could be coming to us some time in the future.

According to a Q&A session at the London International School of Performing Arts, Keanu Reeves answered questions on current and future projects, when he revealed background work already ongoing with the Matrix franchise.

Reportedly Keanu Reeves met with the Wachowski brothers, Andy and Larry - who famously wrote and produced the original Matrix trilogy - and that they had working scripts for Matrix 4 & 5.

After general criticism of the original two Matrix sequels, the brothers are apparently at pains to produce new instalments that aim to use 3D to ground breaking effect.

Keanu Reeves revealed that the Wachowski’s are already consulting with James Cameron, originator of the blockbuster Avatar, among other films, on how to best realise this for audiences.

Obviously, any current planning reveals that any future Matrix films are still at an early stage of development.

If these continue to production, it would be unlikely we’d see them on our screens for a couple of years at best under normal circumstances.

However, the Wachowski brothers are still finishing a film called Cloud Atlas, an adaptation of the 2004 David Mitchell novel.

They have also just sold a script for a new Robin Hood film to Warner Brothers for a reported $5 million, with Will Smith suggested for the lead.

The result is that while we could one day see two new Matrix films, it may not be for a few years yet.

In the meantime, Keanu Reeves also spoke about his current project, 47 Ronin, and how he was two months into a six month training programme for that.

He also suggested that a third Bill and Ted film could also be on the cards for the future.

    Well I guess they can’t make it worse? Matrix 2 and 3 just didn’t have that impact as 1.

    While it is true that the third and fourth movie didn’t have the impact of the first movie, but that’s for completely different reasons from what certain people (haters of reloaded and revolutions) claim. The third and fourth installments are much more complex than the first one with deep philosophical implication. I personally prefer the second to the third and first.
