Warner Bros which is one of the "Big Six" major American film studios is evidently planning a plugging back into its Blockbuster science fiction franchise The Matrix. The Matrix was a science-fiction movie which got released in 1999, which introduced a new movement in filmmaking by using "bullet time" special effects rather than focusing on hacking and a smooth action drama. That style started being used as well as overused wherever there was a scope for action.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, nothing confirmed yet. Famous writer Zak Penn (Ready Player One, Last Action Hero, X-Men: The Last Stand) is boarded to write. While considering Michael B. Jordan to star, but the involvement of the Wachowskis, who have written and directed the original movies, is not confirmed yet.
The point what makes it unique from the original movies is, this will not be a remake but something similar to what Lucasfilm has done with Star Wars. Nevertheless, still, that will be one of the many other probabilities. The Hollywood Reporter suggested a film which focuses on Morpheus first finding out about the Matrix himself could be a movie. The same treatment can also be applied to Trinity too.
Warner Bros has not made any comments with regard to this when he was asked about this when they were asked about this. The producer of the original trilogy Joel Silver is said to have approached Warners with an idea of molding The Matrix for a potential new film. Anyhow according to the sources, Silver sold his interest in all his movies to the studio in 2012 for about $30 million.
A few weeks ago, Keanu Reeves, who played the star of the films, Neo, commented to several outlets that he'd be open to returning to the franchise, but under specific conditions and one of his conditions in his words was "The Wachowskis would have to be involved," Reeves explained Yahoo Movies that "They would have to write it and direct it. And then we'd see what the story is, but yeah, I dunno, that'd be weird, but why not? People die, stories don't. People in stories don't."
The Matrix trilogy namely The Matrix(1999), The Matrix Reloaded(2003), and The Matrix Revolutions(2003), grossed over $1.6 billion worldwide. It was also a cult in film-making, which introduced the so-called 'ultra-slow motion' and dark shaded color tone for many action movies, which followed the path. A large number of movie buffs even started doubting if the world they are living is just a Matrix which is designed by someone else after getting addicted to the trilogy.
