A new “Matrix” movie is coming soon with the Wachowskis to direct and Michael B. Jordan to star.

Chad Stahelski told Yahoo Movies that the Wachowskis will be returning to direct the new “Matrix” film. He told the news outlet:

“I’m super happy that the Wachowskis are not just doing a Matrix, but they’re expanding what we all loved. And if it’s anywhere near the level of what they’ve already done, it wouldn’t take more than a call to go, ‘Hey, we want you to be a stunt guy’ and I would probably go and get hit by a car.”

That said, Slashfilm has since reported the comment is inaccurate and was taken out of context. But, according to Discussing Film, a new “Matrix” film is coming soon at Warner Bros. with the Wachowskis set to return to direct the project.
