You may have seen the lead characters die in the third part of the series over a decade ago, but there’s now going to be a fourth part of the Matrix series and the announcement took social media by storm. Variety reported that Matrix 4 is officially going ahead, with stars Keanu Reeves and Carrie-Anne Moss reprising their roles as Neo and Trinity. Lana Wachowski will return to write and direct the film.
Warner Bros. Pictures and Village Roadshow Pictures will produce and globally distribute the film. Warner Bros. Picture Group chairman Toby Emmerich made the announcement on Tuesday, the report said. What’s interesting further is that the script wlll be written by Aleksandar Hemon and David Mitchell, in addition to Wachowski.
Given this year marked 20 years since the release of The Matrix, the news of the latest installment couldn’t have been timed better. Social media was flooded with tweets, and memes as most people said they couldn’t wait for the latest installment of the series:

not gonna lie this has me extremely excited, Matrix 4 can be the movie to atone for the mis-stap of Revolutions, the wild part is Keanu 20 years later can still pull off being Neo

A fourth Matrix??? Finally we’ll see *checks notes* whether the peace between the Oracle and the Architect held after Neo allowed himself to be assimilated into the machines, creating an energy surge that destroyed all the clones of Agent Smith (1/806) https://t.co/3PSZL76ic1

They're gonna totally bank on no one remembering or caring that Carrie-Anne Moss died in Matrix 3. First line is "none of that counted, Mister Anderson"

The film is reportedly all set to begin production at the beginning of 2020.
