Carrie-Anne Moss is best recognized for her role as Trinity, a clone-slaying bullet-dodging figure, in the Matrix franchise. Keanu Reeves played the role of Neo in the same, but he’s known as so man roles like John Wick and Ted Theodore Logan Esq. Keanu Reeves and Carrie-Anne Moss both had little reservations about returning to The Matrix.
After more than two decades, The Matrix Resurrections, the fourth film in the series, was released on December 22, 2021. In The Matrix, Keanu Reeves reprises his role as Thomas Anderson, aka Neo. Carrie-Anne Moss and Keanu Reeves had a conversation about returning back to “The Matrix”.
For years, rappers and singers like Ne-Yo would pay tribute to Morpheus’s “The One,” a computer programmer and hacker. With the advent of VR, Meta Worlds, and constant escapism like hyper-realistic video games, it felt like living in a real-life “rule of the Machines.” While speaking to AllHipHop, the two Matrix stars discussed how much convincing it took to return to the land of leather.
AllHipHop: So good to see you. Now, of course, Matrix is such an iconic film, but how much convincing did it take for you guys to rejoin, and what made you both say yes?
Carrie-Anne Moss: Zero. Convincing zero, zero convincing. After the shock wore off at the thought that we’re doing this again, it was just nothing but a yes, yes, yes, yes, yes.
Keanu Reeves: Same for me. It was just, yes, there was a yes, and then, what are we doing?
The Matrix’s fourth movie hit theaters with a bang and now fans are excited to see what’s next. Some are critical, but they see potential in this revival of the Matrix universe.
