The Matrix series is gearing up for an exciting return to the big screen, with a new edition officially in the works, directed by famous screenwriter Drew Goddard.

Warner Bros. has announced that the fifth installment of Matrix is in the production process and the upcoming part will be the first one without Lana or Lily Wachowski as directors.

However, the plot details are still under wrap, although Jesse Ehrman, head of production at Warner Bros. Motion Pictures, hinted that the narrative will progress to the fantastical realm.

“Drew came to Warner Bros. with a new idea that we all believe would be an incredible way to continue the Matrix world, by both honoring what Lana and Lilly began over 25 years ago and offering a unique perspective based on his own love of the series and characters,” Ehrman said in a statement.

It is added in the statement, “The entire team at Warner Bros. Discovery is thrilled for Drew to be making this new ‘Matrix’ film, adding his vision to the cinematic canon the Wachowskis spent a quarter of a century building here at the studio.”

Goddard, who was nominated for an Oscar for writing The Martian, said, “It is not hyperbole to say ‘The Matrix’ films changed both cinema and my life,” adding, “Lana and Lilly’s exquisite artistry inspires me on a daily basis, and I am beyond grateful for the chance to tell stories in their world.”

The Matrix, which started the franchise in 1999, and has three sequels, 2003’s The Matrix Reloaded and The Matrix Revolutions, and 2021’s The Matrix Resurrections.
