Rumour reports of two more Matrix films that maybe in the works are doing the rounds, according to new that stems from AICN received from someone who attended a keynote speech at the London School of Performing Arts – at which Keanu Reeves was guest of honour. Keanu was there promoting his new movie 'Henry's Crime'.

Reeves talked about a potential Bill & Ted 3, more Matrix sequels, and other projects. He supposedly met with the Wachowskis to discuss a two-film script treatment which would revisit the universe of The Matrix. Reeves said 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. And that the Wachowskis also met with James Cameron to discuss producing the new films in 3D.

Sorry but can we have something original?
 
I think that all 3 Matrix films work well together. I wonder what gaps are left to fill in?

I've had a cunning idea... they could remake Matrix 2 and 3 and tie it all together with a 'parallel matrix' storyline. So basically Matrix 4 and 5 contine straight after the first film, but at the end of Matrix 5 Neo realsies that there are infact hundreds of Matrixs' all running at the same time, he manages to work out how to cross over into them and then the final battle would be him against himself.

I'm reading that this is a big fan hoax.

according to reps “none of it is true…he did not speak nor get an award from the from the London International School of Performing Arts.”

I read that quote from Reeve's rep who told EW about it being false. With all the coverage stemming from the initial report and seemingly the franchise still holds interest, you never know maybe Warner will be thinking about a revival.

I loved all 3 of the matrix films, I can't see that theres anything wrong with them.

Two more would be greatfully received!

I wish they didn't. Create something else original please! No doubt in 10-15 years time (maybe less) The Matrix will be "rebooted".

If anything else happens with The Matrix I would want Keanu Reeves in it. That means that now is the best time.

Does this mean no more Bill and Ted as well?

I know the matrix was always envisioned as a trilogy but I think the last two became to contrived,I still enjoyed them,just not blown away like the first.I always wanted the "real world" to be another level of the matrix,another form of control,in fact I did when neo stopped the sentinels in the real world.as exciting as it might be,where can they go with it?

Look what happened to Pirates of the Carribean. It was meant to be a trilogy and left at no.3, but now we have 4, and possibly 5. Same can be said for Scream, and many other genre franchises. Matrix will be no exception, Directors, writers, and actors need to get paid.

Expect to see more franchises resurrected in this financial climate, for garanteed profit.

The matrix was brilliant, 2nd one pretty good but the 3rd was possibly one of the worst films I've ever seen.

The Matrix was very good but I wouldn't say it revolutionised the action genre, was just imitated by Hollywood. Okay it had some very nice CGI and some memorable shots but the action was nothing that hadn't been done (and better ) before by John Woo or tons of martial-arts movies. However it probably seemed more revolutionary to those unfamiliar with Eastern Cinema.

As for more sequels to the Matrix I would probably watch them but after the last one especially, which I haven't been able to watch again, I'm not exactly bothered. As for 3 D versions I'm not in the slightest bit interested.

PotC was only expected to a single film until it became a huge hit.

Disagree, the Matrix changed the future of movies a lot.

I remember walking out of the cinema after the first Matrix and thinking "wow, what a film!". I did go to see 2 & 3, but wasn't overly enthralled.
As for 4 & 5, well, unless they do something really special and the initial reviews are positive then I probably won't bother.

I have to admit to hating The Matrix, the first time I saw it. The Mummy came out the same year and I know which one I enjoyed more.

I saw nothing original in it and the so-called 'revolutionary' effects, didn't look revolutionary at all. Bullet-time consisted of the camera moving around an object, whoop-de-do, Basil!

While it had some smarts going for it, I was devouring anime and Hong Kong movies, so it was nothing I hadn't seen before. Same with Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon. Mainstream western audiences lapped it up, they weren't familiar with Wuxia movies and although they tried to tart it up as an arthouse pic, it was far from it. It bored the t*ts off of me, I'd seen far better examples of the genre.

I can watch The Matrix now, as an enjoyable slice of action and science fiction, but one grudge I still hold against it, is that the Japanese were so taken with it, so determined to distill what made it cool, that it ruined Japanese cinema for years. Check out Returner, if you don't believe me.

They should have stopped at the first one...I watched the second one and after the hippy rave was willing the machines to wipe everyone out.
