Matrix 4: “This is a gift. It was just very exciting.” | Carrie-Anne Moss

Published

on

It was 2003, nearly two decades since the last time we saw Carrie-Anne Moss and Keanu Reeves grace the screen in the sci-fi epic ‘Matrix Revolutions,’ as  the computer hacker Trinity and the anomaly known as Neo. The Matrix trilogy is in my opinion, one of the greatest sci-fi action epics ever created. ‘Revolutions,’ gave us a somewhat definitive ending to the trilogy, having the heroes sacrificing it all to save humanity from impending doom at the hands of machines.

Fast forward to present day, we are all waiting with high anticipation for the fourth installment to a trilogy that was all but one hundred percent concluded. The Wachowski’s originally stated, there would never be a fourth movie. And that the Matrix franchise ended the way they intended. But, now armed with a new, beautiful script, Lana Wachowski convinced original stars, Keanu Reeves and Carrie-Anne Moss that a fourth film needed to be made and tell a new story that would be relevant to issues plaguing our society today. In a recent interview with Empire Magazine, Moss explained what brought her back to the franchise.

“When it was brought to me in the way that it was brought to me, with incredible depth and all of the integrity and artistry that you could imagine, I was like, ‘This is a gift.’ It was just very exciting.”

Keanu went on to second Moss’s statements, saying that the script is what brought him back for a fourth film. As well as the opportunity to work with Lana again.

“Lana Wachowski wrote a beautiful script and a wonderful story that resonated with me,” Reeves added. “That’s the only reason to do it. To work with her again is just amazing. It’s been really special, and the story has, I think, some meaningful things to say, and that we can take some nourishment from.”

Lana Wachowski has decided to mostly direct all the action scenes herself. “John Wick” directors Chad Stahelski and David Leitch were stunt coordinators on the original Matrix film and had this to say about Lana’s work on the new installment.

“What makes [Lana] so great is she directs her own action,” Stahelski said. “We’ve had second unit directors on some of the [‘Matrix’ films] just because of the logistics involved. But of late, and especially on ‘Matrix 4,’ she’s directing her own action. The second units for them are mostly establishing shots, the B-sides of the some of the compositions for some locations. But Lana, she does her own action. She weaves it into the main unit stuff, which is why their stuff looks so good.”

Warner Bros. is scheduled to release “The Matrix 4” in theaters nationwide May 21, 2021.

Phoenix had originally said, he felt that ‘Joker’ was a stand alone film that didn’t need sequels. Now, it sounds as if he is changing his tune. According to insiders, a script is currently in the works at Warner Bros. And Phoenix is thoroughly involved.

“Joaquin initially felt ‘Joker’ was a standalone movie. But he’s changed his tune now. He says he wants to play this character again, despite the controversies that came with the release last year. It’s still being negotiated but the scripts are being written and Joaquin is very engaged with it.”
