Is there going to be a sequel to the existing The Matrix trilogy? Will the Wachowskis make another blockbuster starring Keanu Reeves, The Matrix 4? When could such a movie possibly be released? Armies of The Matrix admirers are extremely eager to learn about the possibility of The Matrix franchise extension.
The biggest rumor, probably, was out in 2011 when fans believed that the fourth part will be filmed by 2015 and that Keanu Reeves will be playing Neo again. The title of the hypothetical movie would be The Matrix Resurrection. In the case of the film, the plot would be centered around Agent Smith’s return, along with the virus. However, there were no confirmations from the Wachowski brothers or from the cast. It looks like the fans have been feeding themselves the wrong information — all in all, a trilogy is a trilogy.
In 1999, when the world was experiencing the “Millennium bug” fear and worrying about what the next thousand of years will bring them, the Wachowski brothers (it was the time when Lana was known as Larry) created the first The Matrix movie. It was a blend of Jean Baudrillard’s ideas on simulacra, Lewis Carroll’s Alice’s Adventures…, and Plato’s fable about the cave, which grossed over $600 million worldwide. The following two parts, The Matrix Reloaded and The Matrix Revolutions, were much less favored by fans than the first chapter; however, they still had breathtaking success. Ever since the release of the last chapter in the trilogy, there have been talks on the fourth The Matrix movie. In 2011, there was the peak of rumors about the possibility of The Matrix 4.
