The new upcoming Matrix film will not be a remake nor will it be a reboot, according to Zak Penn.

The sci-fi franchise of The Matrix is all set to return with reports earlier this week that Warner Bros are discussing on making a new movie.

Keanu Reeves took the lead with The Matrix making cinema history with its special effects and mind-bending plot in 1999, before The Matrix Reloaded and The Matrix Revolutions followed in 2003.

The Hollywood Reporter broke the news that Warner Bros Pictures may ‘relaunch’ the franchise with Penn now posting on Twitter to clarify the same:

“All I can say at this point is no one could or should REBOOT the Matrix. People who know Animatrix and the comics understand,” he wrote. “Can’t comment yet except to say that the words ‘reboot’ and ‘remake’ were from an article. Let’s stop responding to inaccurate news.”

Penn then tweeted, “Do I want to see more stories set in the universe of the Matrix? Yes. Because it’s a brilliant idea that generates great stories.”

If I were going to recast Keanu Reeves, I would cast Keanu Reeves.

How about just re-release the matrix? Don’t reboot it, you can’t do better.

Michael B. Jordan is considered to play a role in the new film.

The Trilogy producer, Joel Silver will first approach the studio and original writers and directors, the Wachowski siblings will not be involved.

It has also been reported that Silver sold his interest in his movies to the studio in 2012 for about $30 million and now has a ‘strained relationship’ with Wachowskis.

Keanu Reeves revealed what will convince him to sign up for a sequel.

“The Wachowskis would have to be involved,” he said. “They would have to write it and direct it, and then we’d see where the story is.” He added: “That’d be weird, but why not? People die, stories don’t.”

Last year, The Matrix brought in $3billion in revenue, and this made it the highest grossing franchise of all time.
