The liberation of Matrix revolutions in 2003, somewhat definitively ended the stories that would be told in this world when it comes to cinematic efforts, leaving many audiences surprised that co-director Lana Wachowski and stars Keanu Reeves and Carrie-Anne Moss return for Matrix resurrections. The events of this fourth film, however, left a few more doors open than the previous film, leaving fans wondering when, or if, more installments might be expected, but producer James McTeigue recently noted that he didn’t. there were no plans for suites. , prequels or a brand new trilogy right now. Matrix resurrections is in theaters and on HBO Max now.
“I think right now it’s just the movie you saw. We have no prequel in mind. We have no sequel in mind. We don’t have another trilogy, ”McTeigue said with Collider recently. “But I think the movie also works where it’s really open to audiences for interpretation, like what happened in those 60 years before they drafted Neo, or Thomas Anderson in Neo. Neo and Trinity are there at the end, and they’re talking with the analyst, what do they really mean they’re going to change? So I think it’s over there, but it’s n ‘s not in our wheelhouse at the moment.
While that might seem like a definitive answer, it specifically says “for now,” and there have been many times over the past two decades that even Wachowski has rejected the idea of making another movie. In that regard, it’s hard to say that there will definitely never be another movie, just that it’s currently not on the cards for any of the filmmakers.
Of course, with the original The matrix with the trilogy being such iconic sci-fi adventures, studio Warner Bros. was happy to fund a follow-up experiment, with McTeigue addressing the fact that the financial success of Resurrections, as its success could result in pressure from the studio to move forward or a disappointing performance not earning the funds for the continuation of the series.
“There is always the financial aspect. There are always the filmmakers who want to make the films, and there are always the studios or the streamers who have the money to facilitate that, ”admitted the producer. “So there you go. It’s still a business equation as much as a creative equation.
