Reeves has been spotted filming The Matrix 4 in the past, with the actor sporting long hair and beard,

Pirates Of The Caribbean Producers Thought Johnny Depp Was Drunk During Filming

Pirates Of The Caribbean Producers Thought Johnny Depp Was Drunk During Filming
It might seem strange to think in retrospect, but when Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl was first released, it was not forecast to be much of a success. Defying such low expectations, the film went on to become the surprise hit of the summer and the fourth-highest grossing movie of 2003, after Return of the King, Finding Nemo and The Matrix Reloaded. Its popularity was largely down to Johnny Depp as Captain Jack Sparrow, but during production, the studio bosses didn’t know what to make of his acting and were afraid it would contribute to the movie’s failure.

Depp’s performance is famously based on English rock star Keith Richards, who has a notorious reputation for an inhuman consumption of drugs and alcohol, mimicking the guitarist’s accent, speech patterns and physical mannerisms, and with the allusion being cranked up to 11 when Richards cameoed

The Matrix: 5 Things The Sequels Got Right (& 5 They Got Wrong)
After the surprisingly massive success of the Wachowskis’ unique sci-fi actioner The Matrix, Warner Bros. gave the directing duo the opportunity to complete the trilogy with back-to-back sequels, The Matrix Reloaded and The Matrix Revolutions. Unfortunately, these sequels failed to live up to their groundbreaking predecessor. They didn’t set the zeitgeist on fire like the first one and they didn’t continue or conclude Neo’s story in a satisfying way.

2067 Director Talks Inspiration, Environment & Time Travel [Interview]
Writer/director Seth Larney has always wanted to make films and he got his start deep in production, working on everything from visual effects to coordinator on projects as diverse as The Matrix Reloaded and The Lego Movie. His feature film debut came a few years ago when he directed Tombiruo but his sophomore effort is a passion project 15 years in the making.

Developed from his worries about the environment and inspired by genre films from decades past, 2067 stars Kodi Smit-McPhee and Ryan Kwanten (“True Blood”) as two men living in a future where humanity has destroyed the earth. The last remnants live underground and breathe manufactured air but the population is dying off, in part due to side effects from bre

HBO Max New Releases: October 2020
With Lovecraft Country still providing HBO and HBO Max with its horror content through October, the streamer is looking elsewhere for its spooky season offerings. HBO Max’s new releases for October 2020 feature some truly awesome horror library titles.

Jordan Peele’s Us, John Carpenter’s The Thing, and David Fincher’s Se7en all arrive on Oct. 1. That alone should be enough to last you through spooky season. And if it doesn’t, It: Chapter Two is right there as well. October is also a big month for Batman and Superman with Man of Steel arriving on Oct. 1 along with a whole of animated specials dropping that same day.

In relation to the library titles, this isn’t HBO Max’s strongest month from an original perspective. But there is still plenty to like here. The West Wing election special arrives on Oct. 15. That will be followed by David Byrne

Agent Johnson Will Return in The Matrix 4

Agent Johnson Will Return in The Matrix 4
Another returning cast member has now been added to the roster of The Matrix 4, with actor and stuntman Daniel Bernhardt now set to reprise the role of the villainous computer programme Agent Johnson in the upcoming sequel. Bernhardt also provided the voice for Agent Johnson in the video game Enter the Matrix and has featured in several other high-profile action flicks including Atomic Blonde and John Wick.

Daniel Bernhardt last played the character in 2003's The Matrix Reloaded, in which he and a few of his cohorts took on Keanu Reeves' digital messiah, Neo, and were promptly taught why that is a bad idea. The return of Agent Johnson is a surprising one considering that the version of the Matrix that he existed in was rebooted at the end of the trilogy's final installment, The Matrix Revolutions. This could mean that other familiar faces from the previous movies will

The Matrix 4: Laurence Fishburne “Wasn’t Invited” to Reprise Morpheus Role
The Matrix 4 will see the return of Keanu Reeves as Neo and Carrie-Anne Moss as Trinity, with Lana Wachowski back in the director’s chair. Besides Lilly Wachowski, there’s one other member of the original Matrix family missing from the project: Laurence Fishburne, who played Morpheus in the first three movies.

Since the sequel was announced last year, fans have been wondering where old Morpheus might be hiding. Is Warner Bros. keeping his role a secret? Has the character been relegated to a smaller cameo while Neo and Trinity have all the fun in Mega City?

Fishburne has finally revealed why he’s not on the cast list or in the myriad set photos published online so far. According to the actor, Warner Bros. just never reached out to him to reprise his role.

“I have not been invited. Maybe that will make me write another play. I wish them well.

Keanu Reeves Lauds Safety Protocols as ‘The Matrix 4’ Films in Germany
Keanu Reeves has praised the safety protocols in place after Lana Wachowski’s “The Matrix 4” resumed filming in Berlin.

“There’s some really thoughtful, effective protocols in place, and the rhythm of filmmaking has not been really impacted or interrupted, in the sense of filming,” Reeves told the Associated Press. “That’s because of the hard work and organization, and again the thoughtfulness that has gone into the protocols.”

“I think everyone loves the project,” Reeves added. “If you’re ever going to get into any kind of situation that needs to be figured out, or ‘how do we do this?’ show business people are the best. We’re just scrappy, we know how to get stuff done, we’re inventive, think on our feet, and that kind of kindred spirit of just coming together — goes back to like, you know, ‘let’s put on a show!’ ‘We’ll get some props,

Laurence Fishburne Explains Why He Won’t Appear in ‘The Matrix 4’
Laurence Fishburne will not take another trip down the rabbit hole. The actor told New York Magazine that he “has not been invited” to reprise his iconic role in Lana Wachowski’s “The Matrix” sequel.

“I have not been invited. Maybe that will make me write another play. I wish them well. I hope it’s great,” Fishburne told the publication.

Of his role as Morpheus in the original “The Matrix” trilogy, Fishburne said: “It is probably the role that I’ll be best remembered for, which is great; it’s not the only thing I’ll be remembered for, which is better. What I get with him is I’ve got Darth Vader in this hand, and I’ve got Obi-Wan in that hand. I’ve got Bruce Lee, I’ve got Muhammad Ali shuffled in there, and I’ve got kung fu.”
