Busan: Bae Doona Receives French Honor

Keanu Reeves ‘Excited’ by Lana Wachowski’s ‘Very Ambitious’ Script for ‘Matrix 4’

Keanu Reeves ‘Excited’ by Lana Wachowski’s ‘Very Ambitious’ Script for ‘Matrix 4’
In news that should come as no surprise to fans of both “The Matrix” film franchise and the movies directed by the Wachowski siblings, the upcoming fourth “Matrix” installment is going to be “very ambitious.” Keanu Reeves told Entertainment Tonight that he has read Lana Wachowski’s script for “Matrix 4” and it’s an ambitious narrative. “As it should be,” said Reeves, who added he’s “excited” by what Wachowski has planned for his iconic Neo. Wachowksi’s script is being co-written by Aleksandar Hemon and David Mitchell.

Warner Bros. announced August 20 that a fourth “Matrix” movie was officially being developed at the studio with original co-director Lana Wachowski heavily involved as director and co-writer. Rumors of the studio rebooting “The Matrix” had been circulating for some time (Michael B. Jordan was even rumored to be a top choice for a leading role), but Lilly Wachowski downplayed her return while

Matrix Deepfake: Will Smith Replaces Keanu Reeves in Nightmarish Video

  • MovieWeb
The following Matrix fan-mixed footage allows us to look into a world not too far from our own. A world without rules or controls, without borders or boundaries. A world where anything is possible. Unfortunately, it may have been better if this was not possible. Thanks to the art of the deepfake, we now know what it would have looked like had Hollywood A-lister Will Smith starred as Neo in 1999's The Matrix. You have been warned.

So, that exists, then. Seeing Will Smith sporting Keanu Reeves' 90's floppy hairstyle, combined with his own pencil-thin moustache is a sight that will make the majority of people want to unplug. Add that the Reeve's surfer-like voice emanating from Smith's lips and you have surely entered a world more nightmarish than any that could be conjured by the Wachowski's. Other than having to watch Jupiter Ascending, of course.

The Matrix 4: Can It Work?

Tom Jolliffe looks at the prospect of The Matrix 4

2019 signalled a number of cinematic anniversaries and milestones. It is after all, the year of Blade Runner (the setting of the original film). It also marked the 20 year anniversary of a certain Keanu Reeves-led film that revolutionised visual effects and re-galvanised a sci-fi genre that was suffering from a long slew of dire entries.

When the film first came out it came after Keanu Reeves had been on something of a post-Speed lull. A few exceptions aside, nothing had quite gone right. His blockbusters also failed to hook into that midas touched that Reeves had between time travelling in a phone booth and trying to stop an unstoppable bus. There weren’t huge expectations, and given Reeve’s previous sci-fi blockbuster, Johnny Mnemonic was such an unmitigated disaster, many had written The Matrix off as essentially Johnny Mnemonic 2. Cut

‘The Matrix 4’ Taps Oscar-Winning Cinematographer John Toll

‘The Matrix 4’ Taps Oscar-Winning Cinematographer John Toll
“The Matrix 4” is shaping up to be a major event, with Lana Wachowski at the helm to direct and co-write alongside fiction writers Aleksandar Hemon and David Mitchell, one of the most visionary sci-fi writers of our time. But another artist has joined the ranks.

Cinematographer John Toll will lens the fourth installment in “The Matrix” franchise. He is an Academy Award winner for “Braveheart” and “Legends of the Fall,” and was also nominated for Terrence Malick’s “The Thin Red Line.” Toll also shot Ang Lee’s box-office failure “Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk” at an extra-high frame rate of 120 frames per second, an experiment that Lee will tinker with once again for “Gemini Man.”

Wachowski previously worked with Toll on the much-maligned “Jupiter Ascending,” the shuttered Netflix series “Sense8,” and the ambitious “Cloud Atlas,” based on the time-hopping novel by “Matrix 4” scribe David Mitchell.

The Matrix 4 Gets Oscar-Winning Braveheart Cinematographer John Toll
It has only been a few days since the wondrous news dropped that stars Keanu Reeves and Carrie-Ann Moss will be once again entering the science fiction world of The Matrix for The Matrix 4. Well, the film seems to be continuing to come together very nicely as it has now been revealed that the Academy-Award winning cinematographer John Toll is in early negotiations to join the much-anticipated film, and put his eye to this iconic post-apocalyptic universe.

John Toll will be taking over from Bill Pope, the man who shot the original Matrix trilogy as well as the live-action sequences featured in the Enter the Matrix video game way back in 2003. Thankfully, Toll may just well be the man for the job, having won not one, but two Academy Awards for Brad Pitt romance Legends of the Fall in 1995, and then for Mel Gibson historical epic Braveheart the following year.

Nobody Asked For it But Matrix 4 is Coming

Variety is reporting that only one of the Wachowski's is on board for another Matrix film with both Keanu Reeves and Carrie-Anne Moss expected to return. Considering how terrible Jupiter Ascending and Cloud Atlas were, maybe someone else should take the reins.

It also seems that Morpheus might be recast for a younger star as there's no info on Laurence Fishburne which leads to the idea this might be a prequel. Aleksandar Hemon (Sense8) and David Mitchell (Sense8/Cloud Atlass) co-penned the script. There's no word on the plot but production for this horrendous sounding affair is tentatively set for 2020.

Universal has hit the Nos on the action sequences for Hobbs & Shaw. The studio released new clips and behind the scenes footage for the spin-off to prove it.
