The film will be directed by Lana Wachowski, one of the two creators of the saga
Matrix returns to the big screen with a fourth installment that will be directed by Lana Wachowski, as in the previous three productions, The Matrix Reloaded (1999), The Matrix Reloaded (2002) and The Matrix Revolutions (2003), has endorsed this Wednesday the Variety magazine. This new sequel will once again star Keanu Reeves and Carrie-Anne Moss, and Lana’s sister, Lilly Wachowski, who wrote the script for previous deliveries will not participate in it.
The Warner Bros Pictures studios will produce and take care of the distribution of the future installment, which Wachowski currently writes, who first presented this sci-fi film universe in which philosophy and action intermingle with his sister Lilly in 1999. ” We cannot contain the excitement of re-entering The Matrix with Lana Wachowski, “Warner Bros Pictures president Toby Emmerich said in remarks to Variety.
“Lana is a true visionary, a unique and original creative filmmaker, and we are delighted that she writes, directs and produces this new chapter in the universe of ‘The Matrix,'” he added. The production of the film is scheduled to begin in early 2020, once Wachowski finishes the script, a task in which the writer Aleksandar Hemon and the filmmaker David Mitchell will also collaborate. The scripts of the previous deliveries were written by Lilly (although Lana Wachowski also collaborated in the first), who will not participate in the new sequel because it is centered on the Work in progress series, starring a transsexual woman and which Lilly Wachowski has co-written, co-directed and produced.
In recent years there have been several attempts by Warner to recover the science fiction universe. The start of production would put an end to the 17 years since the filming of the last Matrix movie, a saga that. According to estimates by Forbes magazine, it has sold a total of 103,547,200 tickets in the United States alone.
