Looking back at the Matrix sequels

Mark looks back at the much-reviled Matrix sequels and asks: what went wrong?


This article contains spoilers for the Matrix trilogy.

It seem like a long time ago to some of our younger readers, but those who were there will remember that 2003 was branded “the year of the Matrix” by Warner Bros. Four years after the first film knocked everybody's socks off, Andy and Lana Wachowski made two sequels, an animated anthology, a video game and numerous other tie-ins to expand upon a world that was only hinted at in the original.

Is a New 'Matrix' Trilogy Being Planned?

28 February 2014 1:46 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Andy Wachowski and Lana Wachowski are reportedly developing a brand new sequel trilogy for The Matrix, with Warner Bros. eyeing a 2017 release for the first movie.

The filmmakers are rumored to have already turned in outlines and treatments to the studio, which is desperate for a big blockbuster franchise. Warner Bros. reportedly wants the first movie ready by 2017 so it can compete against the highly-anticipated sequels Star Wars: Episode VIII and Avatar 3, which are slated for release that year.

While it isn't clear which way the filmmakers plan on taking this new trilogy, one of the early outlines reportedly explores how The Matrix was first created. It's too early to tell if this is the route they plan on taking since the story is still very fluid. It also isn't clear if Keanu Reeves will be back as Neo, or if any of the other cast members will be back. »
