Fans are eagerly waiting for The Matrix to return, as a fourth movie in the film franchise is set to drop later this year.
Keanu Reeves is back for the latest instalment and will reprise his role as Neo, who fans last saw in The Matrix Revolutions released in 2003.
He joins Neil Patrick Harris, Jada Pinkett Smith and Carrie-Anne Moss in the cast and filming has been underway for Matrix 4, as production picked up again over the summer amid the coronavirus pandemic.
So far, little is known when it comes to details of the fourth Matrix movie, but Reddit and Twitter users are convinced that the title has been revealed in a leak that surfaced online.
A deleted Instagram post from one of the film’s hair stylists seemed to suggest that the movie will be called Matrix Resurrections.
Shunika Terry shared a video of her receiving a gift following the movie wrapping of a cool trench coat with coding printed all over the lining.
Gushing over the gift, she then showed a note that came with it to the camera that appeared to reveal the movie’s title, with the second half of the message reading: ‘…during these extraordinary times in the making of Matrix Resurrections.’
It was gifted to her by the film’s director Lana Wachowski and producer James McTeigue.
The title is still yet to be confirmed, but fans were convinced that the leak seems to be legitimate – after all, it would fit in with the Matrix sequel movies that came before it; The Matrix Reloaded and The Matrix Revolutions.
The first Matrix film was released in 1999 and lead star Keanu has revealed how director Lana lured him back to the franchise, over 20 years after the original first hit the big screen.
‘Lana Wachowski wrote a beautiful script and a wonderful story that resonated with me,’ Keanu said. ‘That’s the only reason to do it.’
He added: ‘To work with her again is just amazing. It’s been really special.
‘The story has, I think, some meaningful things to say, and that we can take some nourishment from.’
The Matrix 4 is set for release in December 2021.
