Matrix 4 will see Reeves and Anne-Moss reprise their role as Neo and Trinity, respectively.
"Many of the ideas Lilly and I explored 20 years ago about our reality are even more relevant now. I'm very happy to have these characters back in my life and grateful for another chance to work with my brilliant friends," Lana Wachowski said.
This year marks the 20th anniversary of the popular sci-fi action film franchise. Aleksandar Hemon and David Mitchell have co-written the script with Lana Wachowski.
It goes without saying that this is an excellent news for all The Matrix fans out there.
"I am so here for a Matrix 4! Especially since Keanu Reeves and Carrie-Anne Moss have only gotten hotter," wrote one excited fan.

Warner Bros Pictures and Village Roadshow Pictures will back the movie. The studio has been trying to reenter The Matrix universe for some time, but figuring out the producing rights slowed down the process.
Plot details are currently unknown, along with the treatment of Morpheus, originally played by Laurence Fishburne. As per sources, Warner may go in for a younger actor as a recast.
Production is expected to begin early next year. However, release date has not yet been confirmed.
The trilogy -- The Matrix, The Matrix Reloaded and The Matrix Revolutions-- collectively earned over USD 1.6 billion worldwide.
