John Wick was a 2014 American neo-noir action thriller film which was made under the expert direction of the famous Chad Stahelski and David Leitch. Stahelski and Leitch’s approach to action sequences drew upon the admiration of many martial arts and anime films.
Both of them served as fight choreographers and gave some unique choreography techniques.
The pair of directors also have directed three Matrix movies and is said to be returning for the fourth part.
What do Stahelski and Leitch have to say regarding Matrix 4?
Stahelski and Reeves will be returning for a fourth John Wick movie. But the filmmaker confirms in a recent interview that he will be directing Matrix 4 along with Leitch. According to the pair mentioned above of directors, they also have a role to play in the production of Matrix 4.
Stahelski says the movie franchise has asked them to back-up with some creative concept and choreography. So, Stahelski and Leitch will also help in choreography and physical training.
What will Matrix 4 bring to the audience?
Stahelski informs that apart from him, Dave is helping out on a sequence of the film. He also clears out that Lana Wachowski is helping them by directing action sequences.
According to the guess done by news reports, as the movie is taking fight choreographers and physical training into consideration, the film is going to be an action thriller. Not only have the pair of directors served as co-ordinators on the Matrix trilogy, but Stahleski has acted as Keanu Reeve’s stunt double in 1999 original.
Looking forward to the Matrix fans, Stahelski addressed the fans by saying that if you have loved the trilogy, you will love the fourth part, which is returning with a vengeance.
Stahelski himself, a second unit director to various films, also states that the fourth Matrix movie does not have a second unit for its action scenes. Lana Wachowski herself has done all the action sequences to date.
Cast & Crew and release date of the Matrix movie.
Stahelski says it’s almost like a pseudo-family reunion, as most of the cast and crew will return for the fourth part of the Matrix. The team of Matrix 4 has probably completed a sequence part in San Francisco before the pandemic started.
As of now, the production of the movie seems halted because of the worldwide lockdown. The Matrix 4 was scheduled to release on May 21, 2021. But many Warner Bros. movies have shifted their dates, so there can be a delay in Matrix 4.
According to Stahelski, Keanu Reeves and Carrie Ann Moss will return to play their roles as Leo and Trinity, as they have done before in the Matrix trilogy. A list of newcomers like Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Neil Patrick Harris, and Priyanka Chopra will be playing a role in the film.
However, Hugo Weaving will not return as Agent Smith, as his schedule remains occupied for the upcoming year.
Although there will be a delay in John Wick and Matrix 4, the wait will be worth it. It is quite an assuring news that Stahelski will have two action-sequences with Keanu Reeves for the audience.
Until then, the fans can rewatch the last parts of Matrix 4 and John Wick and enjoy it.
