2020 was supposed to be a busy year for Keanu Reeves. Moments ago the trailer for Bill & Ted Face The Music was released, and he was supposed to be halfway through shooting Matrix 4.

Once Matrix 4 wrapped, he would go straight into prepping for John Wick 4. But due to COVID-19 shutting down all Hollywood productions, those plans were put on hold.

Speaking of Matrix 4, the actor, who played Neo in all three films recently had a chat with Empire, and revealed why he returned for the fourth installment.

“Lana Wachowski wrote a beautiful script and a wonderful story that resonated with me,” he says. “That’s the only reason to do it. 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.”

Carrie-Anne Moss, who played freedom fighter Trinity in The Matrix trilogy, echoed Reeves’ sentiments in the same article.

“I never thought that it would happen. 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.”

I never thought it would happen either, especially since both characters died in The Matrix Revolutions. I’m very curious to find out how Lana and writers Aleksandar Hemon and David Mitchell are planning to bring them back.

Matrix 4, which is still scheduled for a May 21, 2021 release, also stars Jada Pinkett Smith, Priyanka Chopra Jonas, Jessica Henwick, Neil Patrick Harris, Toby Onwumere, Brian J. Smith, Ellen Hollman and Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, who is rumored to be playing young Morpheus.
