Zak Penn has responded to the speculation on his possible involvement in a fourth ‘Matrix’ movie. In a series of tweets, the writer made his position on the matter clear:
Apparently the project was never meant to be a reboot, but an expansion. Much like what is being done with the Star Wars and X-Men universes. Where he’ll take the story, is another question. At the end of Revolutions, Neo formed a truce with the Machine leader who agreed to free all the humans. In exchange Neo would destroy Agent Smith, who had taken over the Matrix.
It was the Architect who asked: “just how long do you think this peace is going to last?” And the Oracle who pointed out: “everything that has a beginning, has an end”. So what new nightmare will mankind face and will Michael B. Jordan be ‘The One’ to save them?
