Operating under the working title Project Ice Cream, little is known about the plot of The Matrix 4 at this time. However, last month, Reeves confirmed he'd seen the script and said, "It's very ambitious. As it should be!" Additionally, it was reported that studio execs may be looking to cast a younger incarnation of Morpheus for the planned sequel.

Officially confirmed to be in active development in August after years of rumors and speculation, the fourth Matrix is expected to begin principal photography in early 2020, though no release date has been announced by Warner Bros.
