‘The Matrix 4’ Taps Oscar-Winning Cinematographer John Toll

‘The Matrix 4’ Taps Oscar-Winning Cinematographer John Toll
“The Matrix 4” is shaping up to be a major event, with Lana Wachowski at the helm to direct and co-write alongside fiction writers Aleksandar Hemon and David Mitchell, one of the most visionary sci-fi writers of our time. But another artist has joined the ranks.

Cinematographer John Toll will lens the fourth installment in “The Matrix” franchise. He is an Academy Award winner for “Braveheart” and “Legends of the Fall,” and was also nominated for Terrence Malick’s “The Thin Red Line.” Toll also shot Ang Lee’s box-office failure “Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk” at an extra-high frame rate of 120 frames per second, an experiment that Lee will tinker with once again for “Gemini Man.”

Wachowski previously worked with Toll on the much-maligned “Jupiter Ascending,” the shuttered Netflix series “Sense8,” and the ambitious “Cloud Atlas,” based on the time-hopping novel by “Matrix 4” scribe David Mitchell.

Nobody Asked For it But Matrix 4 is Coming

Variety is reporting that only one of the Wachowski's is on board for another Matrix film with both Keanu Reeves and Carrie-Anne Moss expected to return. Considering how terrible Jupiter Ascending and Cloud Atlas were, maybe someone else should take the reins.

It also seems that Morpheus might be recast for a younger star as there's no info on Laurence Fishburne which leads to the idea this might be a prequel. Aleksandar Hemon (Sense8) and David Mitchell (Sense8/Cloud Atlass) co-penned the script. There's no word on the plot but production for this horrendous sounding affair is tentatively set for 2020.

Lana Wachowski Set to Direct ‘The Matrix 4’ with Keanu Reeves and Carrie-Anne Moss Returning

After years of threatening a reboot with a different cast and crew in mind, Warner Bros. have finally announced official plans to return to The Matrix universe, and it’s on the best possible terms we could have hoped for.

Variety reports that Lana Wachowski will return to co-write and direct a fourth film in the franchise, with both Neo and Trinity themselves set to reprise their roles.

“Many of the ideas Lilly and I explored 20 years ago about our reality are even more relevant now. I’m very happy to have these characters back in my life and grateful for another chance to work with my brilliant friends,” Lana Wachowski said.

Scripted by Lana Wachowski, Sense8 writer Aleksandar Hemon, and Cloud Atlas author David Mitchell, it’s quite a trio of talent behind the pen–and camera, with Wachowski making her much-anticipated return after reports the directing duo would be taking a break.
