The production of The Matrix 4 has been accused of holding a wrap party disguised as a scene from the long-awaited sci-fi sequel.
"For Lilly to come out and share that with us, I think is cool," Keanu Reeves says about Wachowski's recent confirmation of The Matrix's hidden messages.
While it's long been hoped that Laurence Fishburne would be returning with his blue pills and his red pills, he's confirmed that he won't be appearing in the forthcoming sequel The Matrix 4.
"For Lilly to come out and share that with us, I think is cool," Keanu Reeves says about Wachowski's recent confirmation of "The Matrix's" hidden messages.
Laurence Fishburne will not take another trip down the rabbit hole. The actor told New York Magazine that he “has not been invited” to reprise his iconic role in Lana Wachowski’s “The Matrix” sequel.“I have not been invited. Maybe that will make me write another play. I wish them well. I hope it’s great,” Fishburne told the publication.Of his role as Morpheus in the original “The Matrix” trilogy, Fishburne said: “It is probably the role that I’ll be best remembered for, which is great; it’s not the only thing I’ll be remembered for, which is better. What I get with him is I’ve got Darth Vader in this hand, and I’ve got Obi-Wan in that hand. I’ve got Bruce Lee, I’ve got Muhammad Ali shuffled in there, and I’ve got kung fu.”Also Read: Will Smith Explains Why He Turned Down 'The Matrix' to Star in 'Wild Wild West' Instead (Video)The plot, and details of the still-untitled sequel have been kept under wraps, but it’s expected to continue from the original trilogy. It’s unclear where it would pick up, but one reason Fishburne’s red pill, blue pill wielding character wouldn’t appear in “The Matrix 4” might be because he dies of gunshot wounds in “The Matrix Online,” a multiplayer online role-playing game that the Wachowskis blessed as a continuation of the films’ storyline. Though popular belief suggests that his death was faked.Lana Wachowski is directing “The Matrix” sequel from a script she penned with Aleksandar Hemon (“Sense8”) and David Mitchell (“Sense8”). Keanu Reeves, Carrie-Anne Moss and Jada Pinkett-Smith are reprising their roles from the original trilogy, and the film has added big names such as Jonathan Groff, Priyanka Chopra, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, and Neil Patrick Harris.In June, as a result of delays from the coronavirus shutdown, Warner Bros. said it was halting the 2021 release of the film, pushing it to spring 2022.The three previous films in the franchise — “The Matrix” from 1999, “The Matrix Reloaded” and “The Matrix Revolutions,” both from 2003 – have earned more than $1.6 billion at the global box office and were all top-10 domestic hits in their respective years of release.“It’s the old story in a modern context,” Fishburne said of “The Matrix.” “It’s the One, the Christ, the Buddha, the Godhead, the fully realized being told through the digital age.”Read original story Laurence Fishburne Explains Why He Won’t Appear in ‘The Matrix 4’ At TheWrap

Judging from the exuberant expression on her face, it seems that the Divine Miss M feels the same way. The famed actress and singer, who was present at the designer’s epic Americana-themed show this past September at the Ziegfeld Theater, was snapped by David Sims (and styled by Katie Grand) wearing an oversized coat featuring a retro print of a woman screaming. This season Middler joins the ranks of Sandra Bernhard and the designer’s new favorite pal Lana Wachowski. “To this day, I still credit Bette Midler (unbeknownst to her) with a large part of my foray into fashion design,” Jacobs continued in his post.
Eddie Redmayne had a fellow Oscar winner at the helm of his new drama, The Danish Girl, in Tom Hooper (The King’s Speech). “I talked to Lana about Lili and she told me how important Man Into Woman, Lili’s book, was to her,” Redmayne told Yahoo Movies at the Toronto International Film Festival (watch above). “She talked to me at great length about [artist Gerda Wegener’s] paintings of Lili.

Like it matters. And the work becomes secondary, the closed door activities and attitudes to the forefront.
