Keanu Reeves' Head Turning Comment On The Script For Matrix 4

  • Published: 28 September 2019
  • It's been 16 years since Keanu Reeves put down his leather duster and sunglasses as he walked away from his role as Neo in The Matrix trilogy. But now that he's returning to the familiar dystopian universe to become "The One" once again in The Matrix 4, he's sharing his thoughts on the new film.

    Chatting with Entertainment Tonight, Reeves spoke up about the script for the fourth Matrix film, which was officially announced in August 2019. As Reeves walked the red carpet for Semper Fi, the upcoming British drama film produced by his sister Karina Miller, he told ET that he'd read the script for The Matrix 4.

    Admittedly, there isn't a lot to go on with Reeves' comments, but it's still thrilling to hear that he's getting pumped up about returning to one of his many career-defining roles. Plus, "ambitious" is definitely an interesting word considering that the original Matrix trilogy changed the sci-fi movie genre, ultimately defining an entire era of action sequences, special effects, and world-building.

    Thought very little is known about The Matrix 4 yet, we do know that the film is set to push even more boundaries and deliver insightful, incisive, and interesting commentary on our current society. As Lana Wachowski noted when announcing The Matrix 4, the ideas that she and her sister Lilly explored 20 years ago with the first film are even more relevant now.

    When the first Matrix film hit theaters in 1999, audiences were blown away by the extraordinarily intricate world which presented a reality that wasn't actually real. The world everyone thought they were living in was revealed to be a computer simulation created by machines that humans tried to overpower; everything in this fake "reality" is created for humans by those computers. When he's given the chance to escape the Matrix and learn the truth, Neo sees the dark real world where the sun is blotted out and humans must survive by hiding from the machines both inside and outside of the Matrix itself. In the end, it turns out Neo is "The One," a fated hero who can actually control the Matrix while within the simulation, thereby being the only person who has any hope of stopping the machines in their tracks.

    After The Matrix: Reloaded was released in 2003, the trilogy seemed like it came to a definitive end with The Matrix: Revolutions, which hit theaters later that same year. At the conclusion of Revolutions, Neo sacrifices himself to save humanity and bring an end to the human and machine conflict.

    With a conclusion that final, it seems strange that Reeves could possibly return for a fourth installment. But we know that both Reeves and Carrie Anne-Moss are firmly aboard The Matrix 4 and will reprise their roles as characters who were last seen dying, so clearly the minds behind the new film found a way to resurrect Neo and Trinity.

    Reeves has certainly kept busy in the years since he last played Neo. After appearing in various romantic comedies as well as Richard Linklater's adaptation of A Scanner Darkly, he produced a documentary entitled Side by Side and earned his first directing credit on the underrated Man of Tai Chi.

    However, thanks to two stuntmen from the original Matrix films, Reeves returned to his action roots in 2014 with John Wick, which ended up becoming its own trilogy. Alongside these butt-kicking projects, Reeves has taken the time to appear in some comedic projects as well. He starred in Destination Wedding and made self-parodying cameos in the Netflix original films Always Be My Maybe and Between Two Ferns: The Movie.

    He may have bounced around genres since the Matrix trilogy wrapped, but Reeves has planted himself firmly in the pop culture canon with his recent film appearances. There's truly no better time than now for a Reeves-led Matrix 4, and we can't wait to see what it's like.

    What do you think the plot of Matrix 4 will be?

      Perhaps Neo will will finally show everyone what the Agents did not want the masses to see and unplug everyone as promised at the end of the first Matrix. I mean, there’s still millions plugged in as left off in the series.

      @Zera Zalani That's PRETTY MUCH one of the CRAZIEST & MOST COMPLICATED movie theories I've ever come across. I SINCERELY hope it goes that way.

      They can pretty much only go down one route; That Zion is also in the Matrix and they have to wake up and see reality for what it is but what if they realize that it was Keanu Reeves's dream all along and in turn he wakes up as Neo in the first Matrix and Keanu never existed and he's really only Mr. Anderson. Just kidding. But imo very likely that Zion is also the Matrix but maybe the Matrix is not actually created by machines but really humans and the planet/species itself is nowhere near extinction. Perhaps they are harvested to allow a handful of humans to be immortals but i guess it wouldn't be original.

        If they died in the 3rd, maybe it will somehow involve in the 4th installment where they're reborn as seperate people with no memory of who they really were. Sort of like a reincarnation or reprogramming, and one way or another figure it out most likely from an external source (perhaps Morpheus after he too finds out it really wasn't over) that their "victory" was provided by the machines to trick them into thinking they won to keep them from breaking out of the matrix. Maybe neo didn't really go to the real world and really die. Maybe it was simulated.

                                      So, Trinity will be back? AWESOME! Would love to see her back! However, how will they do that? Will someone travel back in time to prevent her death? Will someonse say that, there's a part/copy of her mind in The Matrix & that, all that has to be done, is go inside, get it & install it in a newly made body?

                                          Matrix 4 plot: Neo gets reincarnated as John wicks dog but in the matrix world. There he has to fight machines while stuck as a dog. Trinity is reincarnated as a dominatrix who “trains” Neo to bark when he senses Terminators are near by, oops I mean machaines. And gives him treats for doing a good job.
                                          Add in some other “look who’s talking” animals and a few explosions and bam! Matrix 4!
