Keanu Reeves Reentering The Matrix, This Time In 3-D? [UPDATED]

After the laughable second and third installments in the franchise, is there really anyone out there interested in returning to the world of The Matrix? According to a new report, three very important people are very interested in such a return: leading man Keanu Reeves and the Wachowski siblings.

Over at Ain’t It Cool News, a reader reports on a recent key note speech at the London school of performing arts delivered by Reeves. According to the report, Reeves flat-out confessed that he’s met with the Wachowskis about developing two new Matrix movies:

[Reeves] says he met the Wachowski’s (no emphasis on the word brothers), for lunch over Christmas and stated that they had completed work on a two picture script treatment that would see him return to the world of the matrix as Neo. Says the brothers have met with Jim Cameron to discuss the pro’s and con’s of 3D and are looking to deliver something which has never been seen again. keanu stated that he still has an obligation to the fans to deliver a movie worthy of the title “The Matrix” and he swears this time that the treatment will truly revolutionise the action genre like the first movie. Wachowski’s are working on a movie called “Cloud Atlas” at the moment, once that concludes they will talk again.

The report remains unconfirmed as of this writing, and it’s entirely likely that Reeves’ words are unfounded, misconstrued or just erroneously reported. Then again, those Matrix movies weren’t exactly slouches in the moneymaking department, so we wouldn’t put it past any studio to pursue additional sequels. Treat this as a rumor for now, but for the sake of argument, would you want to see two more Matrix movies?

[UPDATE: The London International School of Performing Arts tells Screen Rant that Reeves made no appearance, effectively debunking the Matrix rumors. So, that’s that — for now, at least!]

    Yeah, I’d like more Matrix movies. If they’re good, I’ll be ecstatic. If they’re bad, I’ll just ignore them like I do the other 2 sequels. So there’s no real way to lose here.

    My problem with the second and third Matrix films is that they lost the focus and wonder of the first film. Had they simply been two Sci-Fi films without the links to the first, a masterpiece of Sci-Fi filmage, they would have actually been great, but they tried too hard to be cerebral when what they needed was to be Sciency. (making up a lot of words here, sorry)

    I like those two films, but I try to watch them and remove the BS in my mind, and leave the action, the beautiful imagery, and the “people enslaved to a greater power” kind of story line that runs through them.

    I can picture a movie based on the Void Trilogy (The Dreaming Void, The Temporal Void, The Evolutionary Void) having a similar set of ideas running through it, with people uploading their minds into a massive computer world, and other fighting against such unnatural existence, etc.

    I would love to see the Matrix again (another installment), but it would be great if the Wachowskis brothers hire the original screen writer and director who did their first movie. I know they claim they did it, but honestly, once you compare the first to the second and third you know they must me lying.

    The Wachowskis brothers remind me of Milli Vanilli.
