The Matrix 4 Confirmed With Keanu Reeves Returning As Neo
Keanu Reeves and one half of the Wachowski sisters, Lana, have signed onto The Matrix 4.
While many people reckon the incredible trilogy finished perfectly, it seems like movie bosses are keen to have one more stab at the franchise.
In also good news, Carrie-Anne Moss, who played Neo's love interest and all-round badass Trinity, is also coming back for more.
It's interesting that Reeves has agreed to the fourth instalment considering it was largely suggested that his character Neo died in the last film.
Like, his body was carried away by a bunch of machines after he overloaded the system - we know he's The One and all, but that's hard to come back from.
Also, Trinity was impaled on loads of metal spikes and died so how the pair are going to be in the reboot will be interesting.
Warner Bros. chairman Toby Emmerich has told The Hollywood Reporter: "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."

Lana Wachowski will be writing, producing and directing the film and she sounds pretty bloody stoked that the world of machines, agents and 'jacking in' will be relived one last time.
"Many of the ideas Lilly and I explored 20 years ago about our reality are even more relevant now," said Wachowski.
"I'm very happy to have these characters back in my life and grateful for another chance to work with my brilliant friends."
There's no word on when the film can expect to be in the cinema but there's no doubt that there will be lines out the door when it does.
The trilogy was such an incredible look at the internet and how humans are progressing as a species.
It was done at a time that technology was really starting to take off, so it will be interesting to see how Lana uses what we have now and extrapolates that into the future.
