It seems that the man who made “Woah” a catch-phrase is going to be very, very busy for the next little while.
According to GeekTyrant, Keanu Reeves was in London to drum up press for his new movie, Henry’s Crime, revealed that he has numerous projects in the work.
Reeves is currently training for a hard R-rated samurai 3D action film that’s in development. He also revealed that Bill & Ted 3 is currently in development and he assured everyone that he is “committed” to the project.
He also announced that he recently met with the Wachowski’s who are currently working on Cloud Atlas, to discuss a fourth Matrix film as their next project which would bring Reeves back as Neo. The Wachowski’s have been meeting with James Cameron to discuss the pros and cons of 3D for the film with Cameron.
In other news, Reeves mentioned that the Wachowski’s recently sold their Robin Hood script to Warner Bros. for $5 million (their highest payday) and that the film is set to “have the same impact visually and technically that Terminator 2,” and that Will Smith is set to star in the lead!
I am not sure how I feel about this, and I’m sure most people out there will agree with me. These are all speculation at the moment, as nothing has been officially confirmed. But, I think that fans everywhere will have one of two possible reactions about these upcoming projects.
1) You’ll be excited about the amazing potential that could spring from these upcoming movies
2) You’ll be furious that Hollywood is going back to the well and destroying franchises that deserve to be left in peace.
Which camp do you fall into? Are you looking forward to another Matrix and/or Bill & Ted?
