Matrix 4 Is Happening With Keanu Reeves and Carrie-Anne Moss

In a word: woah. After a round of talk about potential reboots, prequels and other spin-offs, big news has just broken about the future of the Matrix franchise, as Variety reports that Keanu Reeves and Carrie-Anne Moss are on to return for a fourth installment along with Lana Wachowski, back to co-write and direct.

It's a huge step for the films, which changed the way action is portrayed in big Hollywood blockbusters and blended philosophy with kung-fu for a potent mix that, if the sequels couldn't quite match in terms of critical response and general appreciation, still became successes and had their moments.

What the new film will feature is still being kept under wraps for now, though it'll continue the story of Neo, Trinity and co. Whether Laurence Fishburne will return as Morpheus is also up in the air, according to the trade mag, and there is mention of a potential new way forward with the role. Wachowski has been working on the script with Aleksandar Hemon and Cloud Atlas novelist David Mitchell.

"We could not be more excited to be re-entering ‘The Matrix’ with Lana," says Warner Bros. picture group president Toby Emmerich in a statement. "Lana is a true visionary — a singular and original creative filmmaker — and we are thrilled that she is writing, directing and producing this new chapter in The Matrix universe." Wachowski famously wrote and directed the first three films with sister Lilly, who doesn't seem to be returning at this point. "Many of the ideas Lilly and I explored 20 years ago about our reality are even more relevant now," Wachowski says. "I’m very happy to have these characters back in my life and grateful for another chance to work with my brilliant friends."

No release was announced, but the studio is hoping that cameras will roll early next year. If Reeves wasn't already spending plenty of time at the 87 Eleven action training facility thanks to his John Wick duties, he'll now be practically living there...

Sex Tape Review: Overly Sexual, Rude, Vulgar, and Absolutely Hilarious

The raunchy Sex Tape will divide audiences and critics, but who cares? Sex Tape suggests a growing practice among loving partners: that of making a raunchy testament of their escapades for posterity. But what happens when that evidence gets seen by friends, neighbors, and even the mailman? This is the plot that pits Jay (Jason Segel) and Annie (Cameron Diaz) in an effort to secure every iPad gift Jay has given, his record company playlists being the envy of the recipients, but which has also inadvertently spread the video to every device. The reason for the act - termed in the movie as pulling "the full Lincoln" for its three-hour length - stems from the couple's non-existent social life, brought on by the constant demands of their children. The couple has a lot to lose: a burgeoning business relationship between Annie and Hank (Rob Lowe) could end if the iPad she's given to Hank exposes the video, and so the couple sets out to reclaim and wipe the incriminating …
