There is talk of a reboot of the Matrix movies. No matter who they cast, I will be missing it. They left it completely open to a continuation and, as such, rebooting is not necessary. There are a ton of stories out there that should be brought to film and yet, Hollywood keeps going back to the same shtick because it is what makes money. If we stop going to reboots, they’ll stop making them. What is wrong with a never-ending stream of sequels, prequels, side movies (look at Star Wars!). Just because it’s been a while doesn’t mean people won’t go gaga for a sequel – look how long we waited for Star Wars?
*There has been another fleury of information since I started this post and I have to add this in because hopefully, Zak Penn is not blowing smoke here. If he’s being truthful and we’re looking at a prequel or a sequel, I’ll be in the theater to see it.
