"The Matrix" is getting a reboot, because you've probably missed making red pill/blue pill jokes
In case you thought all of the reboots ever had been done already, guess what? News of a reboot of The Matrix recently hit the internet and everyone lost their minds. Although we don't have any real details yet, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed that Warner Bros. is developing a new chapter of the series. So get ready for slow-motion bullet-dodging to re-appear as the favorite reference to The Matrix.
In case you've forgotten The Matrix, the sci-fi film from 1999, is probably one of the most iconic and well-known films of the last 20 years. Keanu Reeves starred as Neo and the film was written and directed by The Wachowskis. But now it looks like writer Zak Penn will be working on the treatment for the film and Warner Bros. really wants Michael B. Jordan to star in the film. TBH, we really want Michael B Jordan to star in the film too, because that would be pretty epic.
However, since details are foggy, and there's not even a script yet, maybe it's too early to start freaking out? Not for the internet! As soon as news broke, Twitter exploded with plenty of comedic reactions to the news.
While he was promoting John Wick 2, Keanu Reeves seemed like he'd be open to the possibility of a participating in some way in a new film when he told Yahoo Movies:
“They would have to write it and direct it. And then we'd see what the story is, but yeah, I dunno, that'd be weird, but why not?”
You probably remember that The Matrix already had two sequels, Matrix Reloaded and The Matrix Revolutions. But would this reboot be The Matrix 4 or a whole new franchise? Of course, the discussions are very early so we'll find out more information as time goes on. But think about all of the fun new red or blue pill memes we would get this time around?
