A fourth "Matrix" movie is officially happening, with original stars Keanu Reeves and Carrie-Anne Moss set to reprise their roles in the iconic film franchise, Variety reported on Tuesday.
While the first "Matrix" film is widely considered a cult classic, the subsequent two films in the franchise weren't as universally praised.

Plot details for the new film haven't yet been revealed, but filmmaker Lana Wachowski, who wrote and directed the original "Matrix" films along with her sister Lilly, seemed to suggest that some original characters would be appearing in the new film.
"I'm very happy to have these characters back in my life and grateful for another chance to work with my brilliant friends," she told Variety.
Keanu Reeves and Carrie-Anne Moss will reprise their iconic roles
As reported by Variety, Reeves and Moss will rejoin the franchise for the fourth "Matrix" movie as Neo and Trinity, respectively, although exact details about their characters in the new film are still under wraps.

Filming is reportedly set to begin in 2020 — and the script is apparently complete
Multiple outlets have reported that filming for the fourth "Matrix" movie will begin at the start of 2020 since the script is reportedly complete. The first "Matrix" film celebrated its 20th anniversary earlier this year.
Warner Brothers considered rebooting the series in 2017, with Michael B. Jordan reportedly considered for a starring role
According to an article from the Hollywood Reporter in 2017, Warner Brothers was considering rebooting the iconic film franchise that same year but encountered a lot of hurdles before they could do so.
The Wachowski siblings weren't reportedly involved with the 2017 reboot attempt, which was instead being spearheaded by Joel Silver, a former producer of the trilogy who had a strained relationship with the Wachowskis, the Hollywood Reporter said.

And Michael B. Jordan was said to have been considered for a starring role, although the project never came to fruition.
With the recent reports speculating that Morpheus might be played by a younger actor, fans were quick to show their support for Jordan in the role.
Reeves said previously that he would be interested in returning to the series, but only with the participation of the Wachowskis
Speaking to Yahoo Movies in 2017, Reeves said he'd be interested in a reboot of the franchise only if the Wachowskis were involved.
"The Wachowskis would have to be involved," the star, who's become something of an internet darling this year, told the site.
"They would have to write it and direct it," Reeves continued. "And then we'd see what the story is, but yeah, I don't know, that'd be weird, but why not?"
"People die, stories don't," he said.
