Keanu Reeves will have ‘The Matrix 4’ and ‘John Wick 4’ both coming out on May 21, 2021

Matrix
WARNER BROS.

May 21, 2021 is poised to be a very big day for Keanu Reeves as the actor will have not one but two films hitting theaters: John Wick 4 and The Matrix 4.

It’s curious as to why Warner Bros. chose this particular date for the Matrix sequel given the fact that Lionsgate had already announced months ago that John Wick 4 would be coming out on that very day.

Regardless, it seems likely that either one studio or the other — Lionsgate, I’m guessing, even though they had the slot first — will adjust their calendar accordingly so as not to cause too much of a conflict for our boy Keanu.

Production on The Matrix 4 is scheduled to get underway next year with Lana Wachowski returning to the director’s chair with a script she co-wrote along with Aleksander Hemon and David Mitchell.

Reeves, Carrie-Anne Moss, and Jada Pinkett Smith will all be reprising their roles from the previous Matrix movies, while Neil Patrick Harris and Yahya Abdul-Mateen II will be joining the franchise for the very first time.
