Matrix 4 and 5 in works, threatens Keanu

Slo-mo fetish chop-socky saga to go 3D. Apparently

Another two Matrix films may be leaping into cinemas, the Grauniad shrugs.

The curiously youthful Keanu Reeves, star of the Matrix trilogy and of an exceptionally lame meme told an audience at the London School of Performing Arts that he may be getting back into Neo's slinky strides once again.

Excitable source El Nino told big fat film site Ain't It Cool News that the Wachowskis have completed a "two picture script treatment" for two more Matrix films. The films - which would presumably find humanity and the machines falling out again, alas - sound suitably ambitious.

"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," quoth AIC, which also makes mention of - gasp - 3D.

A stylish and thoughtful combination of the iconic, much-imitated 'bullet-time' method and new not-so-shit 3D may indeed make for a gobsmacking movie event. But in terms of story the siblings will have their work cut out, with two variously duff sequels and one of the unsexiest sex scenes in cinematic history to live down. A fat new seam of philosophical metaphysical headfuckery must be found to mine: it is hard to trump that whole "everything you think is real isn't, and vice versa, or is it?" conceit of the first film that made brains go pop all over the world.

The Wachowskis are currently directing an adaptation of David Mitchell's lauded 2004 novel Cloud Atlas. Keanu Reeves is starring in Henry's Crime. The Matrix isn't real. ®
