Warner Bros. considering the possibility of restarting the cult sci-Fi trilogy "the Matrix". However, according to the publication The Hollywood Reporter, the final decision on this matter is still pending. The company is under negotiation and is currently communicating with screenwriter Zak Penn who was engaged in such films as "Last action hero" (1993), "X-Men 2" (2003), "X-Men: the Last stand" (2006), "the Avengers" (2012), "the First player to get ready" (2018).

"a New film from the Wachowski should do, said Reeves in an interview with Yahoo Movies. — They will have to write him a script and personally to sit down in the chair Directors. In that case, I'll agree. Yeah, maybe it sounds strange, but I would try. Why not? People die, and history will remain forever. Like the heroes in these stories."
