A new Matrix film has been rumoured for a while but sources claim that the directors are on board with a new movie.
The Wachowski sisters shot to fame with The Matrix Reloaded and Revolutions. It’s understood that Zak Penn will be writing the screenplay, with Black Panther actor Michael B. Jordan staring in the movie and Jordan’s Outlier Society Productions and Warner Brothers producing the film.
On May 10, Penn wrote on Twitter that a new Matrix film was possible and that he was keen for it.
He also firmly added that claims of a ‘reboot’ of the series were misreported.
Movie site, Discussing Film claims the new movie will start production in early 2020 in Chicago.
This comes as Martix star Keanu Reeves, enjoys his career resurgence with movies including Always Be My Maybe, Toy Story 4 and John Wick: Parabellum.
Fans have dubbed Reeves as ‘the most wholesome person alive’. More than 70,000 people have joined a bid to name him as Time Magazine’s Person of the Year for 2019.
It has been reported that the actor gave millions of his earnings from the Matrix sequels to the special effects team because he felt they needed it more, as well as $20,000 to a fellow Matrix worker to help with family troubles.
