Ever since Lana Wachowski’s The Matrix Resurrections hit theaters on December 22, 2021, Keanu Reeves fans have been waiting for The Matrix 5. But is there a possibility for The Matrix 5 in the future?
The runaway success of The Matrix (released in 1999) resulted in three sequels, namely The Matrix Reloaded, The Matrix Revolutions (both released in 2003) and The Matrix Resurrections (released in 2021). Despite the buzz surrounding the fifth film, it seems the possibility of The Matrix 5 is almost dead. In fact, before The Matrix Resurrections was announced, it was decided that there would be no more movies for The Matrix franchise.
Additionally, following the release of Resurrections, producer James Mc Teigue said he had no plans for any further Matrix films, although he believes the film’s open ending means that may change in the future. coming. Additionally, prior to the release of the latest film, Lana Wachowski and main star Keanu Reeves also stated that they currently have no plans to extend the franchise.
Also, the box office performance of the recent The Matrix 4 (The Matrix Resurrections) was far below expectations. The film was released in both theaters and on HBO streaming services, and it grossed $427 million worldwide, which is an underperformance in terms of box office collection. Of course, the creators blame it on the COVID-19 pandemic, but it’s worth noting that the film released simultaneously in theaters and HBO MAX streaming services.
In a recent interview with Empire Online, Keanu Reeves said he doesn’t believe there will be another sequel to The Matrix.
When asked if there was another movie in the works for Keanu Reeves and Carrie-Anne Moss, the handsome actor quipped, “What’s another one? Resurrections Redux .”
He also predicts that Lana Wachowski won’t be moving forward with another movie or The Matrix 5. “Wachowskian! I don’t believe it. If I had to vote – No, not a ballot, a vote. not another Matrix,” Keanu said.
He also said he was ready to work if The Matrix 5 happened. Speaking to Fandom, Keanu said he’s open to doing a fifth movie if Lana is on board. He said, “I mean, if she wanted to do another story and wanted to include me, I’d be honored and grateful. And I’d love to see what happens to Trinity and Neo – and the world.”
Carrie-Anne Moss backs up Keanu, “Totally, of course…that would be amazing.”
However, it is highly unlikely that The Matrix 5 will happen in the future. If that happens, fans will definitely want to see Neo and Trinity’s chemistry. We might also see a reboot movie, as it has become almost a factor standard in the industry for popular movies to have a reboot movie or a sequel. Keanu and Carrie-Anne will surely team up for Lana Wachowski’s film if it happens in the future.
