  • In 1999, a daringly original sci-fi film became the must-see hit of the year and launched

  • one of the most successful trilogies of all time.

  • The Matrix.

  • Now, two decades later, another sequel is on the way.

  • So grab a spoon, pick a pill, and find out everything there is to know about The Matrix

  • 4.

  • "All I'm offering you is the truth."

  • "Nothing more."

  • Though no release date has yet been revealed, we have some pretty good guesses.

  • Variety reported that the new Matrix film is scheduled to begin filming in early 2020.

  • Considering how long it takes to film, edit, and create digital effects for a movie like

  • The Matrix, the release date likely won't be until the summer or fall of 2021.

  • That would be in keeping with tradition.

  • The Matrix and The Matrix Reloaded hit theaters in late March 1999 and mid-May 2003, respectively,

  • while The Matrix Revolutions, shot immediately after Reloaded, made its way to theaters just

  • six months later in November 2003 so as to not keep fans waiting for the trilogy's conclusion.

  • Keanu Reeves, actor, officially became Keanu Reeves, legend, thanks to his turn as Neo

  • in The Matrix.

  • For most fans, if there's no Neo, there's no point to a new Matrix film.

  • Well, don't worry, because Reeves is reportedly signed on for The Matrix 4.

  • And he'll also be joined by co-star Carrie Anne-Moss, who became a Hollywood sensation

  • as Trinity.

  • So far, though, there's no word regarding the return of other Matrix stars like Hugo

  • Weaving, Laurence Fishburne, or Jada-Pinkett-Smith.

  • For now, we'll just have to wait and see.

  • It wouldn't be a Matrix movie if the Wachowskis weren't involved.

  • After turning heads with the stylish 1996 crime drama Bound, Lana and Lily Wachowski

  • made themselves legends with The Matrix in 1999, and went on to co-write and co-direct

  • the entire trilogy.

  • So will they be involved with the new Matrix?

  • For now, the answer is yesand no.

  • While Lily Wachowski apparently won't be involved, Lana Wachowski is set to direct, and co-write

  • the script with author Aleksander Hemon and Cloud Atlas screenwriter David Mitchell.

  • Warner Bros.

  • Picture Group head Toby Emmerich said,

  • "We could not be more excited to be re-entering The Matrix with Lana.

  • Lana is a true visionary - a singular and original creative filmmaker - and we are thrilled

  • that she is writing, directing, and producing this new chapter in The Matrix universe."

  • One thing conspicuously absent from Variety's August 2019 report announcing the launch of

  • The Matrix 4 was any mention of Laurence Fishburne's character Morpheus.

  • Variety reporter Justin Kroll later tweeted that this may actually be a hint as to the

  • plot of the film, writing,

  • "If you've asked yourself, 'Where's [Morpheus],' sources have told me this may point to where

  • and when the film is set as I've heard execs are looking at a variety of actors to possibly

  • play 'young [Morpheus].'

  • Stay tuned on that front…"

  • The fact that Morpheus might be played by an actor younger than Fishburne suggests The

  • Matrix 4 takes place in a different time - or in a different timeline - than the original

  • trilogy.

  • And it also suggests they've decided to scrap the previously rumored Matrix reboot as well.

  • Yes it's true: back in March, 2017, The Hollywood Reporter broke the news that Warner Bros.

  • had started preliminary development of a reboot/relaunch of The Matrix.

  • After original Matrix producer Joel Silver approached Warner Bros. with the idea of a

  • revival, the studio reportedly began discussions with X-Men: The Last Stand and Incredible

  • Hulk screenwriter Zak Penn to write a detailed narrative plot outline.

  • The Wachowskis were not involved with that project, and no actors were ever signed, but

  • initial reports hinted that Warner Bros. would've liked to cast Creed star Michael B. Jordan.

  • Now, though, with director Lana Wachowski and stars Keanu Reeves and Carrie Anne-Moss

  • all set to return to the world of The Matrix, it seems as though that reboot project is

  • dead - killed off by the original.

  • "Ironically, this is not far from the truth.

  • Do you believe in fate?"
