Keanu Reeves Will Reprise Role In ‘The Matrix 4’

Keanu Reeves is returning to The Matrix. Reeves and co-star, Carrie-Anne Moss, have signed on to reprise their roles as “Neo” and “Trinity” in an upcoming fourth installment of the successful film franchise, Variety reports.

Lana Wachowski, who wrote The Matrix and The Matrix Reloaded, will pen the script for the film produced by Warner Bro. Pictures and Village Roadshow Pictures. Additional information, including the plot and further details around other potential cast members returning for The Matrix 4, remain unknown. Production on the film is set to begin in 2020, a source told the website.

Lana and her sister, Lilly Wachowski, are credited with creating and directing The Matrix series. In 1999, a woman named Sophia Stewart filed a billion dollar copyright infringement lawsuit accusing the Wachowskis of stealing the script from her. Conflicting reports claim Stewart won the lawsuit, while others say the suit was dismissed.

The original Matrix film, which was released in 1999, brought in more than $400 million worldwide. Its 2003 sequel, The Matrix Reloaded, earned close to a billion dollars, while The Matrix Revolutions made just under $430 million.

'The Wire's' Tray Chaney Shares His Testament In Self-Entitled Documentary Trailer

You may have seen Tray Chaney as Malik "Poot" Carr on the HBO Emmy-nominated drama series The Wire where he starts as a neighborhood drug dealer in the Barksdale organization and slowly moves up in ranks. He has also starred in a list of roles including Bounce TV's  Saints & Sinners as Kendrick Murphy and was nominated in 2019 at the International Christian Film Festival for Best Actor: Short Film in Angels in Rocket Field.

Is 'The Proud Family' Coming Back To Disney?

According to reports, beloved early-2000s cartoon The Proud Family could reportedly be heading to Disney's new streaming service with all-new episodes.

During a red carpet interview for the film 47 Meters Down: Uncaged, actor and comedian Tommy Davidson, who played the cartoon family's patriarch Oscar Proud, stated that new episodes would come with the media company's upcoming service, Disney+.

"I forgot to tell you that, The Proud Family is coming back. Proud Family's coming back," he reportedly said. "It's on one of Disney's streaming [services]. Yeah, Proud Family's coming back. They told me not to tell you."

Fueling even more speculation, an unofficial, fan-made page featuring new animation of Penny Proud and her friends made the rounds on Twitter Monday night (Aug. 20). Over the weekend, people also discovered that Solange and Destiny's Child sang the show's theme song (we thought everyone knew, but welcome to the club).

Disney+ is reportedly going to drop on Nov. 12, so we'll likely hear more news about it soon, and will finally get an answer about The Proud Family's possible reboot.
