Keanu Reeves Reveals The Reason He Returned for 'Matrix 4'

The Matrix wouldn’t be The Matrix without Keanu Reeves.

In an new interview with Empire magazine, the 55-year-old actor opened up about what convinced him to return for the popular movie franchise as Neo.

“Lana Wachowski wrote a beautiful script and a wonderful story that resonated with me,” Keanu admitted, before opening up about the script further. “That’s the only reason to do it.”

He added, “To work with her again is just amazing. It’s been really special, and the story has, I think, some meaningful things to say, and that we can take some nourishment from.”

Keanu‘s co-star Carrie Ann Moss also admitted in the article that she didn’t think a fourth movie would be made.

“I never thought that it would happen,” she said. “It was never on my radar at all. When it was brought to me in the way that it was brought to me, with incredible depth and all of the integrity and artistry that you could imagine, I was like, ‘This is a gift.’ It was just very exciting.”

The Matrix 4, which will also star Priyanka Chopra, is set to premiere in 2021. Eight extra weeks were added to the production schedule for the film.
