Warner Bros. Developing ‘The Matrix’ Reboot

The MatrixWhen The Matrix was released in theaters in 1999, it blew away critics and audiences alike with how it pushed the envelope. The impact it has left on cinema is so vast, that almost every action movie made since then has had some inspiration from what the Wachowskis brought to the table.

Sadly, the two sequels that followed: The Matrix Reloaded and The Matrix Revolutions failed to reach the heights of the original film. But even with that, the influence of the first film transcends the final product of these two sequels.

Now, it looks like Warner Bros. is planning on returning to the world that the Wachowskis created. According to The Hollywood Reporter, a reboot of the franchise is in the works, with screenwriter Zak Penn in talks to write the treatment for the film.

While promoting his newest film John Wick: Chapter Two, Keanu Reeves was asked about whether or not he would return to the franchise. He responded that he would return if the Wachowskis were to return to the directors’ chair. However, according to THR, it looks like WB is planning on finding a new director and star.

What do you guys think? Do you want to a reboot of The Matrix? Would you rather have the Wachowskis return to direct and have Reeves return as well? Sound off in the comments below, and be sure to follow Heroic Hollywood for more news regarding The Matrix and more!

    I don’t know that this film needs a reboot. A continuation, perhaps. But not a reboot.

    • Ruben C Barron

      That’s what I thought as soon as I read this. Years later peace has crumbled and a new “One” has emerged. Or something like that.

    without the wachowskis and keanu I would be EXTREMELY leary of a reboot…like…hammer don’t hurt ’em leary. Like, don’t mess with texas leary.

    On the flip side, I’d be very excited to see what they had to offer; if the original people were involved.

    go figure.

    There are some things, you just don’t touch unless you plan to handle them correctly.
