“It’s very ambitious, As it should be!”

When news broke that Lana Wachowski would be returning to helm a fourth installment in the Matrix Franchise, it all but broke the internet. The news was later followed up by reports that we would see most of the original cast return, which included Keanu Reeves and Carrie-Anne Moss. Further reports suggest production had began casting a “Young Morpheus” and a “Young Neo,” news that had many of us thoroughly confused about the plot direction for the upcoming film. Writer Zak Penn took to social media to clarify:

It would appear that not one, but two Matrix films are in the works. One being a prequel, while the other will be a continuation of the original trilogy storyline with neither being a reboot. The prequel is rumored to have cast Michael B. Jordan as the title character (Morpheus), while feelers have been out searching  for a “Young Neo.”

Keanu was recently asked about the upcoming project and how he felt about returning to his past role as Neo. He said he was “Absolutely” excited. When asked if he had seen the script and what he thought he responded:

“It’s very ambitious, As it should be!”

The ‘Matrix 4’ is set to begin filming, February of 2019 in Chicago under the working titleProject Ice Cream”

‘Joker’ Success Has Joaquin Phoenix Talking Sequel

“It ended up being a dream role”

Todd Phillips’ ‘Joker’ had tremendous success this weekend. Blowing the doors off the box-office with a record shattering October at $96mil, beating out ‘Venom’ to take the top spot. While ‘Joker’ is still playing strong in theaters, fans have already started speculating what direction the “Clown Prince of Crime,” will head next. Todd Phillips originally shot down the idea of a ‘Joker 2.’ While talking to IGN Phillips said, “We have no plans for a sequel. We always pitched it as one movie, and that’s it.” Now it sounds like Phoenix has different aspirations for the Joker. During an interview with “Popcorn with Peter Travers,” Phoenix talked about his love for the role, saying:

“You know, I wouldn’t have thought about this as my dream role. But now, honestly, I can’t stop thinking about it,” Phoenix said. “I talked to Todd a lot about what else we might be able to do, in general, just to work together, but also specifically, if there’s something else we can do with Joker that might be interesting. So, it ended up being a dream role. It’s nothing that I really wanted to do prior to working on this movie.”

Phoenix, who famously passed on the role of Doctor Strange in the MCU also had this to say about returning to the Joker:

“I don’t know that there is [more to do],” Phoenix said. “Me and Todd would still be shooting now if we could, right? Because it seemed endless, the possibilities of where we can go with the character.”

‘Joker’ will definitely have fans clamoring for more. The movie sets up plenty of potential options for a sequel. More importantly fans just want to see Phoenix return to the screen as Arthur Fleck aka Joker. Joker has raked in over $258mil worldwide on a reported $50mil budget.

Amy Pascal will produce the upcoming films through her production company, Pascal Pictures as she has on the first two Holland/Spidey films. Pascal weighed in on the news:

“I am thrilled that Spidey’s journey in the MCU will continue, and I and all of us at Marvel Studios are very excited that we get to keep working on it,” Feige said in a statement. “Spider-Man is a powerful icon and hero whose story crosses all ages and audiences around the globe. He also happens to be the only hero with the superpower to cross cinematic universes, so as Sony continues to develop their own Spidey-verse you never know what surprises the future might hold.”

“This is terrific,” she said. “Peter Parker’s story took a dramatic turn in ‘Far From Home’ and I could not be happier we will all be working together as we see where his journey goes.”
