Seems wild speculation of the week kicks off with the Wachowskis and Keanu Reeves hoping to create another pair of Matrix films in 3D.
It is being rumored that Keanu Reeves met with the Wachowski’s for lunch over Christmas and that they had completed work on a two-picture script treatment that would see him return to the world of the Matrix as Neo.
Also, the Wachowski’s apparently met with James Cameron to discuss the pros and cons of 3D and are looking to deliver something which has never been seen before.
While I have always been of the mind that if you can make it good, there is no reason not to make the film. However the Matrix films ended at one for me. The second part left more questions that the first never even presented and the third part just didn’t satisfy them for me.
Now there was some great action in the films, but the fights went on so long that I stopped caring who won and that doesn’t add up to an engaging film. They attempted to get deeper into the mysticism of the property and blurred the lines between the impossible they create in the Matrix and the reality of life outside it, and that shit on the beauty of the first film.
That being said, I am not at all encouraged to see them further stretch what was an amazing first film into another pair of Matrix movies just so they can play with the 3D toys. I would love to see the bullettime effect in 3D, but I don’t need another Matrix film to do it.
However, I find the news of making two NEW movies in 3D a better idea than finding out they are converting the first three.
UPDATE ScreenRant Reports:
The Senior Administrator for the London International School of Performing Arts informed me that Keanu Reeves made no appearance there, assuming that’s the correct school.
So if there is any shred of truth to this at all, there needs to be confirmation of this alleged lunch they had to talk about Matrix Sequels since it didn’t happen where the original leak said it did.
Did it happen at all?
