Rumor of the Day: The Wachowskis planning two more Matrix flicks

At a press event in London, Keanu Reeves chummed the geek waters with the news that the creators of The Matrix have been secretly working on the further adventures of Neo.

And, what's more, the Wachowskis have met with James Cameron about possibly shooting the new films in 3-D. All this from a Q&A that Reeves gave while promoting his upcoming thriller Henry's Crime. Here's the salient info, as reported by an Ain't it Cool News reader (which explains the dodgy command of language):

"Says he met the Wachowski's (no emphasis on the word brothers), for lunch over Christmas and stated that they had completed work on a two picture script treatment that would see him return to the world of The Matrix as Neo. Says the brothers have met with Jim Cameron to discuss the pro's and con's of 3D and are looking to deliver something which has never been seen again. Keanu stated that he still has an obligation to the fans to deliver a movie worthy of the title The Matrix and he swears this time that the treatment will truly revolutionise the action genre like the first movie."

Thus far, there's no corroboration of this event, or what was said. And it's hard to believe that Reeves would so publicly slam Reloaded and Revolutions, especially if he's looking to star in Matrix 4 and 5. So, as with all rumors, take it with a hippo-sized grain of salt.

UPDATE: According to IndieWire, who spoke to Reeves' representatives, the actor was not in London over the weekend, and gave no such Q&A. The fan hoax strikes again!
