With so many sequels and reboots opening up in movie theaters, one has to wonder when one of the biggest franchises of all time — the “Matrix” franchise — will return to the big screen. It’s been almost 14 years since the last “Matrix” movie, “The Matrix Revolutions,” arrived in theaters. While speaking with Yahoo! Movies, Reeves revealed the one condition that would have to be met for him to get involved in a new “Matrix” film.
“The Wachowskis would have to be involved,” said Reeves, referring to “Matrix” trilogy directors Lana and Lilly Wachowski. “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?”
Reeves also addressed the fact that “Revolutions” concludes with the death of his character, Neo. “People die, stories don’t,” said Keanu, “people in stories don’t.”
“John Wick Chapter Two” includes a quasi “Matrix” reunion, as it reteams Laurence Fishburne and Keanu Reeves. The stars were also joined by fellow “Matrix” star Carrie-Anne Moss at the “John Wick Chapter Two” premiere.

Since the last “Matrix” film in 2003, the film’s stars have moved on to different franchises; Fishburne plays Perry White in the new DC cinematic universe and Moss plays Jeri Hogarth in Marvel’s Netflix series. The latest installment in Reeves’ current franchise, “John Wick Chapter Two,” is in theaters now. The action film opened on February 10 and has already grossed $90.4 million worldwide. It’s already surpassed the box office gross of the first “John Wick,” which earned $88 million worldwide in 2014.
