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. No, not Episode I - we're talking about 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.
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. Keep watching the video to see the Matrix 4 details revealed!
