Bust out your black leather jackets and philosophical musings, because The Matrix 4 finally has an official title.
That’s right, you may now refer to the next installment of the franchise by its proper name: The Matrix: Resurrections. A fitting title to rejuvenate the iconic films for the new generation.
Even better, the Wachowskis are returning to co-write and direct the film, joined this time in the writers room by The Lazarus Project scribe Aleksander Hemon and Cloud Atlas author David Mitchell, who the Wachowskis previously collaborated with when adapting his novel back in 2013.
