Warner Brothers announced on Tuesday that the new Matrix Film, which has been in testing mode since 2017, will officially head into production in 2020. The film is going to bring back Keanu Reeves as Neo, Carrie-Anne Moss as co-star and Lana Wachowski as writer, director and producer.
Lana Wachowski will co-write the screenplay alongside Aleksandar Harmon and David Mitchell, who previously worked on the Netflix series, ‘Sense8’.
“The Matrix” featured Reeves as Neo, a man who discovers that humanity is trapped inside a simulated reality known as the Matrix, and that he is the destined champion who can help liberate them. Moss, Laurence Fishburne and Hugo Weaving were among the co-stars.
The film was a major hit, including the sequels “The Matrix Reloaded” and “The Matrix Revolutions,” which were shot in tandem and both released in 2003, completing the original story.
