New 'Matrix' sequels are NOT happening. Is anyone actually disappointed?
Image Credit: Jasin BolandLike an unwitting inhabitant of the Matrix, Harry Knowles at Ain’t It Cool News believed whatever he wanted to believe when he tantalized fans with subsequently disproven news that Keanu Reeves was planning to re-team with Andy and Lana Wachowski for two more sequels about techno-messiah Neo. (A rep for Reeves told EW, “None of it is true.”) But the real question here: Is anyone actually disappointed that the Wachowskis are not going to re-enter The Matrix?
Judging by the fan response on AICN and other sites where the false story was picked up, there is still some interest in the franchise that once seemed like the future of action movies before it unraveled with two reviled sequels (and even worse spin-off videogames). Maybe post-Inception there’s a new market for complicated technobabble like the Architect’s speech at the end of The Matrix Reloaded. We put it to you, PopWatchers. Would you still like to take another trip down the rabbit hole? Or does even the idea of another Matrix sequel make you want to reach for that blue pill?
