Following the release of The Matrix Revolutions in 2023, the Wachowskis denied the possibility of another Matrix film despite Warner Bros.' interest in expanding the franchise. Still, Lana Wachowski returned to direct The Matrix Resurrections released in 2021, and now, the next The Matrix installment is reportedly underway.

For the first time ever, the new The Matrix movie won't be directed by any of the Wachowski sisters, although Lana will join as an executive producer. Instead, The Martian and World War Z screenwriter Drew Goddard will lead the production as movie director and writer.

According to reports, Warner Bros. said Drew Goddard "approached the company with a new take to extend the franchise", although the movie's plot, cast, and other details are still unknown:

"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", said Warner Bros. Motion Pictures president of production Jesse Ehrman.

Drew Goddard is a huge fan of The Matrix franchise and is best known as the creator of the Netflix series Daredevil. His career began as a writer on the popular TV show Buffy the Vampire Slayer and later on, he worked as a screenwriter for Cloverfield, World War Z, and Oscar-nominated The Martian. Goddard was also an executive producer on The Good Place and made his debut as a movie director with the acclaimed The Cabin in the Woods.
