Great article, haha.

Ain't it cool news

Hi guys,

Hope you're feeling better Harry, get well soon!

Long time reader, occasional news feeder. Writing from rainy old London, England. Surprised that no one has commented on this, lucky me I guess. Was lucky enough to attend a key note speech at the London school of performing Arts university and was honoured to be in the same room as Keanu Reeves who was the guest of honour. Keanu was here promoting his new movie Henry's Crime which is opening shortly.

keanu as always was his kind gentle self and spoke to the class for a good 45 mins about his big break in acting and his love for Shakespeare. the floor was then opened for Q&A and the following was note worthy;

- Says he's prepping a action movie around the world of the samurai and that it will be a hard "R" rated 3D action feast that will deliver some great martial art set pieces. he's into 2 months of a 6 month training programme.
- Spoke briefly about the possibility of Bill and Ted part 3 - ( Audience started laughing) but he assured us he's committed to the project.

this is where the fun begins. Some great info shared with us good people.....

- Says he met the Wachowski's (no emphasis on the word brothers), for lunch over Christmas and stated that they had completed work on a two picture script treatment that would see him return to the world of the matrix as Neo. Says the brothers have met with Jim Cameron to discuss the pro's and con's of 3D and are looking to deliver something which has never been seen again. keanu stated that he still has an obligation to the fans to deliver a movie worthy of the title "The Matrix" and he swears this time that the treatment will truly revolutionise the action genre like the first movie. Wachowski's are working on a movie called "Cloud Atlas" at the moment, once that concludes they will talk again.

- Keanu spoke about the need to encourage writers to continue to focus on working on new ideas and that a good script was worth its weight in gold. For example he said the Wachowski's had just sold the most expensive script in history to Warner Brothers. a modern futuristic take on the legend of "Robin Hood". Says he understands WB paid $5 million for the rights and that from what the wachowski's have told him, it will be an action movie that would have the same impact visually and technically that Terminator 2 had. Confirmed that Will Smith has agreed ti headline the picture.

that was pretty much it guys, have to give kudos to Mr Reeves. A true gentleman and an esquire.

can't wait for the above to come to fruition. If you use this please refer to me as "El-Nino".

Peace out gents.....

As one of the very, very few fans of all three Matrix movies, I'm pretty excited to return to the Matrix universe.

Yeah, I liked all the Matrix movies as well. The 2nd and 3rd were steps backwards from the first IMO, but still enjoyable.

I'd be up for more Matrix movies, though I'd go in with lowered expectations based on the last two. But as long as they're no worse than those, I'd still enjoy them.

id only watch a 4th matrix film if in that one they pretended the last 2 films never happened. why will smith why if youre hell bent on making shit films let your kids follow in your footsteps your sons already one shit film in give him time and he will catch up to you and maybe surpass you.

i hate when hollywood "blacks" up franchises or well known storylines im still in shock from that black honeymooners film never saw it but the concept alone was painful to imagine.

@lokizz:
So, am I misunderstanding, or are you making the argument that Jaden Smith, a 12-year-old, should play the Robin Hood character? What, is Will Smith too old at 42?

Also, I'm not gonna touch that second paragraph with a 10-foot-pole. Jesus.
Hi...

The only news in that entire post that I gave two shits about was the possibility of a Bill and Ted 3. I'm sure it's a joke, but hey, I can dream.

A modern Robin Hood starring Will Smith? Suddenly that Russel Crowe movie seems awesome. Bill and Ted 3 is a horrible idea, Reeves and Winter are way too old.

I would love to see another Matrix film, but make it good. The first Matrix kicks ass, Reloaded had good action scenes, while the third one I can't even remember. Another Bill and Ted sounds... Interesting. As for Will Smiths daughter as Annie...



Not gonna work unless she shows actual talent.

and yeah, I would watch a 4th Matrix film, but to be honest I can't remember the 3rd movie.

The 3rd Matrix film was basically closest to a Dragon Ball Z movie I can think of at the end. That and giant robot spider.

Figured there would be another Matrix. Can anyone spell t-o-n-s-o-f-m-o-n-e-y? It seems like whatever the Wachowski bros fart out now-a-days is gold...lol.

As far as a "futuristic robin hood" movie with Will Smith... That seems like his niche lately - futuristic movies of some kind (ex: iRobot, I Am Legend, Book of Eli). I guess I can handle another one...maybe...

Hopefully at least one of those movies will be good :-P

BTW, that music video that FroMann posted is absolutely horrible... It made my dog get up and leave the room as well, so animals dont seem to like it either. :-/

Did he just say Hollywood needs new ideas and then in the same breath say the most expensive script ever is a modern Robin Hood?!?! Ow...my brain.

Hollywood has plenty of fresh new ideas...problem is they won't produce any of them. Why do you think there are so many indie flicks that are clever and original? Meanwhile HW keeps pumping out remakes, reboots, and animated movies about barnyard animals.

I like Keanu and while Matrix 2&3 were not as good as 1, I still enjoyed them. I'm curious about 4 but not sure how they will pull it off. Looking forward to it though.

That was Denzel Washington in Book of Eli.

I couldn't care less about the Matrix but more Wild Styllians I am down for regardless of their age. +1 for Bill and Ted.

The whole Keanu Reeves interview never happened. So there is no future Matrix movies or Hood. Someone just made it all up.
