The film will be directed and written by long-term Matrix boss Lana Wachowski along with her sister Lilly on screenplay. It was previously reported that Keanu Reeves only agreed to sign up for the new sequel with the knowledge that the Wachowskis were on board.

Back in September, Reeves teased what to expect from The Matrix 4, saying: “It’s very ambitious, as it should be!”
