The Matrix was written and directed by the Wachowski siblings, and starred Keanu Reeves as hacker Neo, who discovers the true nature of his reality and must fight against the ones controlling it.

The movie was followed in 2003 by The Matrix Reloaded and The Matrix Revolutions, which were not as well received as the original.

Keanu has previously said that he would consider returning for another Matrix movie if the Wachowski sisters were writing and directing it, but according to The Hollywood Reporter they are currently not involved with the reboot.
