Release date for The Matrix 4 unveiled

A release date for the fourth instalment of The Matrix has been unveiled. 

It was confirmed earlier this year that Keanu Reeves and Carrie-Anne Moss will return to lead a fourth movie in the hugely lucrative franchise, which grossed over $3 billion at the box office. 

It is the first movie in the franchise since 2003's The Matrix Revolutions. 

Both Reeves and Moss are set to reprise their roles in a fourth Matrix movie, which will be written, directed and produced by one of the film's original co-creators, Lana Wachowski.


Her sister Lilly, who co-directed the originals, will not work on the new movie. Aleksander Hemon and Cloud Atlas writer David Mitchell have also provided work on the script. 

The film had been expected to debut in 2022, but Warner Brothers have now confirmed it'll be much sooner, with the film due in cinemas on May 21st in 2021. 

Ironically, the new release date means it is presently expected to hit cinemas on the same day as the fourth instalment of John Wick. 

Earlier in the week, it was confirmed that Mindhunter's Jonathan Groff and Sense8's Toby Onwumere were joining the cast. 

They join Neil Patrick Harris, Jessica Henwick and Yahya Abdul-Mateen II in coming onboard. Abdul-Mateen II is rumoured to be playing a younger version of Laurence Fishburne's character Morpheus.
