Keanu Reeves has dropped a cryptic hint on when his upcoming film, The Matrix 4, takes place.
Since it was revealed that The Matrix stars Keanu Reeves and Carrie-Anne Moss were going to star in the upcoming sequel, many have wondered just how that was going to happen. Carrie-Anne Moss’ Trinity clearly did not survive the events of the third film, having been impaled by metal rods during a ship crash. While his death wasn’t confirmed, the ending of The Matrix Revolutions heavily implied that Keanu Reeves’ Neo did not survive his final battle with Hugo Weaving’s Agent Smith. Because of this, it does beg the question as to when The Matrix 4 takes place.
During a recent interview with the BBC, Keanu Reeves was tightlipped about just what was going on in The Matrix 4. He revealed that the film was not a prequel but did hit at something other than a direct sequel:
“No, no. No going in the past. It’s another version, a call to wake up and it has some great action. All will be revealed.”
