The Matrix 4 Story Is Both Beautiful And Nourishing, According To Keanu Reeves

According to the Wachowskis, The Matrix trilogy was born from “rage at capitalism” and “corporatized structure and forms of oppression.” With that said, Keanu Reeves and Carrie-Anne Moss explain why they want to reprise their roles in said trilogy, which deals with the script being “beautiful” and “nourishing.”

The last time we reported on The Matrix 4 was in late April of this year. In that write-up, we covered how Chad Stahelski and David Leitch are helping out with Lana Wachowski‘s fourth installment, despite the two stunt choreographers now turned directors’ working as “conceptual assistances” instead of “full-on second units.”

In other words, Wachowski prefers to direct “her own action” sequences rather than let other people take over directly.

And speaking of Wachowski conjuring up the script and events to unfold in the fourth film, Reeves explains why he chose to be in The Matrix 4 thanks to an interview that posted:

“Lana Wachowski wrote a beautiful script and a wonderful story that resonated with me.

That’s the only reason to do it. To work with [Lana] again is just amazing. It’s been really special, and the story has, I think, some meaningful things to say, and that we can take some nourishment from.”

Moss also spoke with the publication site and offered her take on The Matrix 4 and what it’s like to star in the forthcoming film that’s currently postponed due to the current pandemic:

‘I never thought that it would happen. It was never on my radar at all. When it was brought to me in the way that it was brought to me, with incredible depth and all of the integrity and artistry that you could imagine, I was like, ‘This is a gift.’ It was just very exciting.”

So, what we can take away from The Matrix 4 at this point is, it has “artistry” and “integrity,” and it’s also “beautiful” and contains “nourishment.” Let’s not forget that all of those buzzwords are being compiled on top of the following as per quoting Lilly Wachowski not too long ago:

“Lilly Wachowski revealed that the [Matrix] franchise was ‘born out of a lot of anger’ over her own feelings of oppression prior to her transition in 2016.

Lilly also said the trilogy was ‘born out of a lot of anger and a lot of rage, and it’s rage at capitalism and corporatized structure and forms of oppression.”

Lastly, we’ll find out more from Reeves and Moss when the full interview is printed in the new issue of Empire on June 11th, 2020.
