It's official (ish): the fourth Matrix film will be called The Matrix Resurrections.
The title scheme follows on from The Matrix (1999), The Matrix Reloaded (2003) and The Matrix Revolutions (2003).
The title also makes sense, bearing in mind that the film is resurrecting the Matrix franchise after eighteen years and also bringing back the characters of Neo (Keanu Reeves) and Trinity (Carrie-Ann Moss), who both appeared to die in the previous movie. How they return is a key plot point of the new film.
In addition to Reeves and Moss, the film is also bringing back Jada Pinkett Smith as Niobe, Lambert Wilson as the Merovingian and Daniel Bernhadt as Agent Johnson from the original trilogy. Hugo Weaving was asked to return as Agent Smith but was unavailable due to scheduling conflicts; conversely Laurence Fishburne was not asked to return as Morpheus, despite canonically surviving the events of The Matrix Revolutions.
The Matrix Resurrections is currently scheduled for release on 22 December this year, COVID pandemic permitting.
Warner Bros to Laurence Fishburne: take the blue pill.
No Hugo Weaving because of scheduling conflicts is like...
"Are you havin' a laugh?!"
No but seriously, what the?
You may as well make the movie without Keanu, citing scheduling conflicts...
