Plot details on Zak Penn’s Matrix script are pretty much nonexistent apart from the tidbits he shared with his followers on Twitter However, the screenwriter did reveal that his script is set earlier in the timeline of The Matrix universe, which further confirms that the upcoming Keanu Reeves film is indeed a sequel.

Seeing as Zak Penn’s Matrix film isn’t a mainline sequel to the three Matrix films starring Keanu Reeves, one can imagine that his film is currently on the backburner. If the fourth Matrix film is a success, perhaps we’ll be seeing Penn’s script come to life. Penn is quite the prolific writer, having written scripts for Ready Player One and X-Men: The Last Stand.
