Double movie releases for Keanu Reeves for 2021 as both The Matrix 4 and John Wick 4 will be released on the same.
The release date, as confirmed by Warner Bros. Studios, established on December 11, will be on May 21, 2021. Matrix 4, which is still untitled, is directed by Lana Wachowski, also as the co-creator, co-writer, co-producer.
It was only back in August when it was released that Reeves, together with the original co-start Anne Moss will be returning for the 4th sequel of The Matrix movie.
It has been almost a decade since the last one, and the character of Keanu Reeves died. It will be interesting how he will be coming back for the 4th installment, after the 2003’s doubleheader The Matrix Reloaded and The Matrix Revolutions.
Other stars who will be joining the movies are Watchmen’s Yahya Abdul Mateen II, Mindhunter’s Jonathan Groff, Neil Patrick Harris, and Iron Fist’s Jessica Henwick and Jada Pinkett Smith.
The Matrix 4 is taking over the slot that was before from Taika Waititi’s live-action version, a Manga Akira to give way to the 4th sequel of The Matrix. Akira started in 2002, but it has taken for a very long time for it to develop.
“Leonardo DiCaprio will produce the set and has been removed from the Warner Brothers; thus, the release date is now indefinitely. Because it is shot in California, a conditional $18.5 million is allocated for a tax credit. Meanwhile, “Thor: Ragnarok” will be released by Marvel Studios on November 2021.
Also, Warner Bros. released The Flash movie, and it will open on July 1, 2022. It will be starred by Ezra Miller and directed by Andy Muschetti.
Warner Bros. Picture Group chairman’s comment on the revival “We could not be more excited to be re-entering The Matrix with Lana. 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.”
On the other hand, the date of release for both movies may be changed before May 2021 arrives, but it will be quite interesting for two Reeve’s films to be competing against each other at the box office. Some may anticipate that Matrix 4 will top better than John Wick 4. Lionsgate may have to respond to this and move the release of one of their successful franchise, John Wick. Although either way, that year certainly is a good year for this actor.
Some other films set to be released on the same month would include “Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness” by Marvel Film, “Spirit Riding Free” from Universal’ DreamWorks films and “Cruella” from Disney live-action film, which will be starred by Emma Stone (the villain from 101 Dalmatians).
The Other Warner Bros. release dates for “The Flash” and “The Conjuring”, its third installment, were announced on Wednesday.
