"I don't believe there will be one. I don't know what the Wachowskis are doing right now other than working on 'Jupiter Ascending'. I don't know if they're thinking about another 'Matrix'," eonline.com quoted Reeves as saying.
The 49-year-old accepts that his character became very famous.

Channing Tatum is lining up another producing project, and this time he’ll star as well. THR reports that Tatum is in talks to produce and star in Bad Romance for MGM, with 50/50 and Warm Bodies helmer Jonathan Levine set to write and direct. Details on the film are not given, but if it’s anything like Levine’s previous work it’ll be a swell blend of humor, drama, and of course, romance. Tatum is currently busy filming the comedy sequel 22 Jump Street and has a range of roles on the horizon. Next year he’ll be seen in Lana and Andy Wachowski’s sci-fi epic Jupiter Ascending, Bennett Miller’s real-life drama Foxcatcher, and the excellent-looking animated pic The Lego Movie.

Appearing at an Australians in Film awards dinner late last week, the Wachowski siblings spoke a bit about their upcoming science-fiction epic "Jupiter Ascending" which is targeting a Summer 2014 release.
Andy Wachowski says the film has wrapped shooting and is well into post-production now. On the one hand, he says editing on the film has been a lot smoother than it was with the more narrative complex "Cloud Atlas". On the other, the new film's visual effects are "way more complicated."
Talking about the film's content and scale, Lana Wachowski kept the details secret. She said:
"It's a science-fiction space opera. It has a lot of things from a lot of genres that we love. It's got a lot of original action, it's got a lot of romance.
We seem not to be very good at making small things. We keep saying 'Let's go make a small movie.' But »

Los Angeles (AP) — The Wachowski siblings say they're hoping to again surprise audiences with the science-fiction movie "Jupiter Ascending," starring Channing Tatum and Mila Kunis.

"It's a science fiction space opera," Lana Wachowski said outside an Australians in Film awards dinner. "It has a lot of things from a lot of genres that we love.

Director James McTeigue worked his way up through assistant director ranks, notably for Alex Proyas on Dark City, for Lana and Andy Wachowski on The Matrix trilogy, and George Lucas on Star Wars: Episode II – Attack of the Clones. His directorial debut – produced and written by the Wachowskis – was the stylish and impressive graphic novel adaptation V for Vendetta, which marked him as a talent to watch. McTeigue’s follow-ups, however, proved less than mind-blowing. While 2009′s Ninja Assassin delivered on the title’s promise – lots of killer ninja action – there was little else to recommend about it. And 2012′s The Raven, starring John Cusack in a fictional account of the still-mysterious last days of ...

It never gets old seeing Channing Tatum's hot body. And we'll apparently being seeing lots of it in Jupiter Ascending, his upcoming sci-fi flick from brother and sister directing duo, Andy Wachowski and Lana Wachowski. "Channing Tatum is shirtless probably 90 percent of the time," costar Tuppence Middleton told me at British Airways' launch party for its new Airbus A380. Middleton, no surprise, was impressed by what she saw. "I have a scene where he…glides into the scene and is accusing me of something and he looks pretty angry," Middleton said. "It was a pretty great moment." So why so much shirtlessness? "If there's any chance of getting »

Studio Babelsberg may not be a film studio that you’re familiar with by name but if we were to mention some of the movies that have been made at Germany’s premiere film studio, it would become clear that it’s been an integral part of your film-watching experience. At time we visited the studio, George Clooney was there shooting his new movie Monuments Men and Ryan Reynolds was also on the premises shooting his latest film The Voices. It wasn’t until we got to watch the following reel that I truly realised the scale that Studio Babelsberg had in the world of filmmaking…. it was where Metropolis was made!
We got to visit Babelsberg which only last year celebrated it’s 100th anniversary to mark the release of Cloud Atlas (out today on DVD, Blu-ray and Digital download), it started to become clear as to why Directors Tom Tykwer, »

Men dressed as women, Halle Berry as a white woman, Hugo Weaving looking like ‘The Hitcher’ from The Mighty Boosh. With these elements you could be forgiven for thinking Cloud Atlas is a mess lost up its own backside – but how wrong you’d be. Adapted for the screen by the Wachowski’s and Tom Tykwer from David Mitchell’s novel, the trio have accomplished a work of hypnotic beauty spanning continents and timezones.
The magnificence of Cloud Atlas is not merely the direction and the performances, both of which are excellent, it is in the near astounding editing by Alexander Berner (criminally overlooked at Oscar time) and the wondrous score. Reinhold Heil, »

No, Channing Tatum will not steal the Wolverine title from Hugh Jackman but the actor is going to play a wolf-human hybrid for the Wachowskis' "Jupiter Ascending." Filming is underway right now and Tatum is co-starring with Mila Kunis. We told you back in April that "Jupiter" is about:
Being the Queen of the Universe! The Wachowski Siblings have started shooting the new sci-fi film "Jupiter Ascending" starring Mila Kunis, Channing Tatum, Eddie Redmayne, Tuppence Middleton, Doona Bae, James D.Arcy, and Sean Bean.
Like a sci-fi twist on "Cinderella," Kunis stars as Jupiter Jones, Russian immigrant who scrubs toilets for a living but then discovers that she is next in line to be the Queen of the Universe! How quaint!
While promoting his upcoming action flick "White House Down," Tatum revealed to Movieline that he's a "splice" and they are "essentially built in a test tube. I'm a hybrid wolf and human. »
Channing Tatum is no stranger to versatility, portraying everything from an action hero to a romantic lead to a male stripper on the big screen. But his next role might be the most unique in his repertoire: a wolf-human hybrid.
Tatum revealed that strange makeup is the basis for his character in the new film from Lana and Andy Wachowski, "Jupiter Ascending." The concept flick stars Mila Kunis as a cleaning lady, who, according to Slash Film, "unbeknownst to her shares a genetic makeup with the Queen of the Universe. The Queen isn't all that happy about the existence of a potential rival, and sends a character played Channing Tatum to track her down."
While promoting his upcoming action flick "White House Down," Tatum talked for the first time about his experience shooting "Jupiter," including the juicy, odd description of his part.
"I'm a splice," the actor explained. "Splices are »

Other than the basic story that the "ruler of the universe" discovers she shares the same DNA as a lowly janitorial worker (Mila Kunis) whom she wants to eradicate, there's not much else known beyond the casting.
Out doing promotion for "White House Down," actor Channing Tatum talked with Collider about one of they key differences between this project and many other blockbusters these days - such as many of the fight scenes in "Man of Steel":
"It’s a tough shoot. We're doing stuff that’s never been done, inside the camera, in the CG world, and the physical stuff.
There’s very little, if not no, digital stuntmen in the movie. All the stuff is really real and it’s been hard figuring it out because they don »

Filmmaker Roland Emmerich is poised to blow stuff up real good this summer with the actioner White House Down, and in addition to showcasing what are sure to be some crazy set pieces, the film also features a promising buddy team-up between Channing Tatum and Jamie Foxx. Besides White House Down, though, those two actors are also a part of two of the most anticipated films of 2014, as they each appear in The Wachowskis’ sci-fi pic Jupiter Ascending and the sequel The Amazing Spider-Man 2, respectively. Steve spoke with both Tatum and Foxx earlier today in Washington, D.C. for White House Down, and the two took some time to tease both Jupiter Ascending and Spider-Man 2. Tatum revealed that he actually plays a hybrid wolf and human in the Wachowski pic, which he describes as "a bit cheeky," and the ambitious film is being made with “little or no digital stuntmen, »

According to Deadline, the film will focus "on the relationship between Hawking and his wife." The film is set up at Working Title, and it's being directed by James Marsh, who worked on the Oscar winning documentary Man of Wire.
Redmayne is also up for a lead role in a film called Far From the Madding Crowd, in which he would star alongside Carey Mulligan. It sounds like he can only choose one or the other, but according to the report, the actor is more interested in playing Hawking. Why wouldn't he be? This would be a great role for any actor, and Redmayne is a talented one. I think this kind of role will take his career to a whole new level.

Deadline.com reports that "Theory of Everything," the first feature film to center on the British physicist's life, is coming together. Oscar-winning documentarian James Marsh ("Man On Wire," "Project Nim") is slated to direct the effort, which is expected to zero in on the relationship between Hawking and his wife (although Deadline.com does not specify which of Hawking's two ex-wives that will be). No word has emerged yet on which actress could nab that role.
Regardless of how this movie shapes up over the next few months, it's almost certain that it will be an Oscar contender. The role attracts two aspects Best Actor voters adore: playing a real person (recent examples include Daniel Day-Lewis, Sean Penn, Phillip Seymour Hoffman) and playing a character with physical or mental disabilities (Colin Firth, »

While it looks like composer Michael Giacchino won’t be able to play around in the world of Star Wars, he’s nevertheless set to tackle another exciting and beloved film franchise. J.J. Abrams’ longtime collaborator shared an image on Twitter of a monkey dressed up as a composer, saying it was the outfit he would wear while recording the score for the sequel Dawn of the Planet of the Apes. Matt Reeves—another longtime friend and collaborator of Abrams'—is helming the Apes pic, and Giacchino previously worked with Reeves on the director’s past two films, Let Me In and Cloverfield. Giacchino is an incredibly gifted composer, and I can’t wait to hear what he puts together for the new Apes pic. His past work is incredibly varied—from Star Trek to Up to Lost—so one assumes it’ll be something wholly different yet unsurprisingly fantastic. »
