If you grew up in the late 1990s, chances are that you would have seen -- or at least, heard of -- 'The Matrix' movies.
The movie, starring Keanu Reeves, Laurence Fishburne and Carrie-Anne Moss, was ahead of its time, with its gorgeous special effects, jaw-dropping fight scenes and neverending action sequences.
You could say that 'The Matrix' movies were the 90s version of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
If you're one of those people who are praying that the studio would make another trilogy (ala 'Star Wars') or reboot the franchise, well, you might just get your wish.
Chad Stahelski, the director of 'John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum', told Yahoo Movies UK
that a new 'The Matrix' movie is in the works, with the original directors on board.
“I’m super happy that the Wachowskis are not just doing a Matrix, but they’re expanding what we all loved," he was quoted as saying.
If you're wondering how Stahelski knows all this, he used to work as Keanu Reeves' stunt double in the trilogy.
So, can we really take his word for it? Well, yes and no.
Soon after the interview with the website, Stahelski retracted his statement, saying that the Wachowkis (the directors of the trilogy) are not attached
to the film.
His comments, according to Slash Film, "were in response to a hypothetical scenario were the Wachowskis would be involved and he did not confirm them being attached to the new film."
To further complicate things, Keanu Reeves, who played the titular character Neo, mentioned that he'll only reprise his role if the Wachowskis are involved.
So, no Wachowskis, no 'The Matrix 4'.
However, the good news is, rumours of a 'The Matrix' reboot has been kind of confirmed by entertainment website The Hollywood Reporter
, but the movie studio has been keeping a tight lip on the development so far.
Guess we'll just have to wait a little bit longer for the official announcement.
