While #Keanu Reeves is celebrating the birth of a potential action movie series in "#john wick" and "John Wick 2", there are a number of people who would really like to see perhaps his most famous series return to the big screen. During the press tour promoting his latest action flick, there were a number of questions posed to the actor as to whether or not he'd be willing to do another "Matrix" film. Fan boys and fan girls all over the world squealed in delight when Reeves said he'd be willing to do another film in what has so far been a trilogy, as long as the right people are attached to it.
The one caveat to Keanu Reeves return
According to the New York Post, the thing that will get Keanu Reeves back on board with a fourth film in the series is if the same people who did the first films are going to do this one. Specifically, Reeves said, "The Wachowskis would have to be involved.” Much like the actor himself, the famous duo have put together a number of new projects since "#The Matrix" was released.
There's no sure bet the Wachowskis would be interested in continuing their trilogy. The bigger problem is whether or not the studios would get very excited about the prospect of the pair working on this project if it came to pass. While the original film was a money maker and critical hit, the subsequent films in the "Matrix" franchise were considered a step back.
John Wick a far cry from Neo
Even if Keanu Reeves doesn't have another "Matrix" in him, it appears Reeves is going to be just fine. Despite its incredibly violent nature, or maybe because of it, the "John Wick" franchise has found itself quite the cult following. It's possible there is a time when the actor is going to be better remembered for this role among some people when it's all said and done.
Either way, it appears that Keanu Reeves has managed to cement himself as one of the most iconic actors of his generation. He'd be the first to tell you it's not entirely because of his acting prowess. The actor has managed to find himself some good roles. As he told the New York Post, “People die, stories don’t.”
