There’s been a lot of chatter recently about finally getting a fourth movie and tonight we have the news that we are indeed going back into the mainframe… with a few familiar faces.

Yes, Neo and Trinity – Keanu reeves and Carrie-Anne Moss are with back as is co-writer/director of the original trilogy Lana Wachowski, previously one of the Wachowski brothers.

Sadly, missing is Laurence Fishburne as Morpheus with rumour being he will be portrayed by a younger actor this time around, suggesting the movie takes place along a different timeline. This ties in with the Michael B Jordan as young Morpheus rumours we heard a while back (here)

Warner Bros chairman Toby Emmerich made the announcement earlier tonight:“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.”

Adding to this, Lana Wachowski added: “Many of the ideas Lilly [Wachowski] and I explored 20 years ago about our reality are even more relevant now. I’m very happy to have these characters back in my life and grateful for another chance to work with my brilliant friends.”

While there is no denying the original trilogy really only had one good instalment, it’s exciting to think we’re getting ready to enter The Matrix again…

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
