Matrix Resurrections will not have a sequel, confirms producer – CVBJ


A week ago, the unexpected fourth installment of The Matrix hit the big screen – 87%. Although it was one of the most significant franchises between the end of the 20th century and the beginning of the 21st century, it marked a remarkable revolution in the way of telling stories from narrative to visual – at least as a movie that had the opportunity to show itself around the world – it seemed like the story of Neo and Trinity was already over, however, for commercial reasons perhaps, Warner Bros. decided to resume this adventure.

During those days, it became clear that a reunion with these characters didn’t work out for the general public. While some saw it as an independent journey from the original trilogy to new possibilities within this universe, for other viewers – fans or not – it turned out to be a completely unnecessary commodity. In the same movie, it looks like Lana Wachowski is justifying why she picked up a story that was already over, where she throws the blame directly on the company by pointing out that they had taken Matrix with or without your collaboration.

Within the same Matrix Resurrections – 65%, that seems like an open end to any sequels or some other kind of spin-off, and the question remains whether they’ll really take the risk of extending the franchise afterward. the reception of this film. It was Keanu Reeves who commented a few days ago that he didn’t think the Wachowskis were interested, but if the possibility existed he would be willing to step into Neo or Thomas Anderson’s shoes again.

However, this is far from the case, and it is the same producer James McTeigue who confirms it. A tough interview with Collider, also director of V for Vengeance – 73% (where Lana and Lilly were writers) ensured that at least he and Lana had no interest in giving it some sort of continuity.

Look, for us, I think, right now it’s just the movie you saw. We have no prequel in mind. We have no after-effects in mind. We no longer have a trilogy. But I think the movie also works where it’s really open to audiences for interpretation, like what happened in those 60 years before Neo, or Thomas Anderson got caught again. When Neo and Trinity are there at the end, and they’re talking to the analyst, what do they really mean they’re going to change? So I think he’s over there, but he’s not leading us right now.

It is clear that if you keep working on everything related to the 1999 film, it will no longer be in the hands of the creative minds of Matrix. And, frankly, it’s hard for Warner to want to take a chance after the film’s low income, mixed reviews from critics and fans, and the little interest it has generated in HBO Max around the world. If they decide to take the risk despite this, it probably has something to do with the fact that they have already invested.

About the fact that the company only viewed the franchise as a source of revenue, McTeigue had no doubts that it was still a financially living franchise for Warner.

There is always the financial part. There are always filmmakers who want to make movies, and there are always studios or streamers who have the money to facilitate that. Then yes. It’s still a business equation as well as a creative equation.
