The studio has been attempting to reenter The Matrix Universe for a while, but it slowed down the process by finding out the generating rights. In addition to the therapy of Morpheus, plot details are presently unknown, initially performed by Laurence Fishburne. Warner may cast a younger actor into the role, according to sources.
It is anticipated that production will start early next year. The trilogy— The Matrix, The Matrix Reloaded, and The Matrix Revolutions— collectively earned more than $1.6 billion worldwide.
