Matrix 5 Would Miss the Point of The Matrix Resurrections

“The Wachowskis would have to be involved,” Reeves confirmed to Yahoo Movies when pressed about his possible involvement with a fourth Matrix film in 2017. “They would have to write it and direct it. People die, stories don’t. People in stories don’t.” It eventually came to pass: Lana Wachowski signed on to helm a new Matrix sequel in 2019 and eerily echoed Reeves’ sentiments while explaining her reasons for doing so almost 20 years after The Matrix Revolutions bowed. “It never was interesting to me as an idea to continue it,” she said at the Berlin International Literature Festival. “Then something really hard happened: Both my parents got ill. My dad first got ill, and my wife and I went home to take care of them, and we were really close to them. And also a good friend died in this very short period… It was just this constant grief. My dad died, then this friend died, then my mom died. I didn’t really know how to process that kind of grief. I hadn’t experienced it that closely.” Lana added that after a sleepless, emotional night, an idea for a new Matrix movie came to her. “Suddenly, my brain just exploded this whole story. I couldn’t have my mom and dad… yet suddenly I had Neo and Trinity, arguably the two most important characters in my life. It was immediately comforting to have these two characters alive again, and it’s super-simple. You can look at it and say: ‘Okay, these two people die, and okay, bring these two people back to life, and oh, doesn’t that feel good?’ Yeah, it did! It’s simple, and this is what art does and this is what stories do. They comfort us and they’re important.” The writer-director achieved her aim with The Matrix Resurrections . Having Neo and Trinity alive again and catching up with them after so long was indeed comforting. But unexpectedly snarled up in its attempt to revive that sweet love story was a savage critique of the blockbuster industry’s obsession with revisiting IP wells in the form of remakes, reboots, and sequels, while actively ignoring opportunities to explore original stories.
