The Matrix franchise is set to expand with a fifth installment, marking a significant shift as it will be the first movie in the series not directed by Lana or Lily Wachowski. Instead, the director’s chair will be occupied by Drew Goddard, renowned for his work on The Martian. Lana Wachowski, however, will remain involved as an executive producer, ensuring continuity with the franchise’s roots.

Details about the plot of The Matrix 5 are still under wraps, and it’s uncertain whether original stars Keanu Reeves and Carrie-Anne Moss will reprise their roles.

However, Warner Bros. Motion Pictures president of production, Jesse Ehrman, has hinted at a fresh direction with new characters and storylines. Ehrman praised Goddard’s new concept, expressing excitement about his unique perspective and deep respect for the original films created by the Wachowskis.

“Drew came to Warner Bros. with a new idea that we all believe would be an incredible way to continue the Matrix world,” Ehrman stated, emphasizing the blend of homage to the original series and Goddard’s innovative vision. The entire team at Warner Bros. Discovery is eager to see Goddard’s contributions to the iconic Matrix universe.

Drew Goddard, who is best known for his critically acclaimed adaptation of The Martian, has a rich background in both film and television. His work includes the Netflix Daredevil series, Cloverfield, World War Z, Bad Times at the El Royale, and The Cabin in the Woods, as well as writing for popular TV shows like Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Angel, Alias, and Lost.

Goddard’s admiration for The Matrix films is evident, as he described them as transformative for both cinema and his personal life. “Lana and Lilly’s exquisite artistry inspires me on a daily basis,” he shared, expressing his gratitude for the opportunity to contribute to their world.

Starring Keanu Reeves, Laurence Fishburne, Carrie-Anne Moss, and Hugo Weaving, the film explored the concept of reality as a computer-generated simulation.

The franchise continued with two sequels in 2003, The Matrix Reloaded and The Matrix Revolutions, along with various comics, video games, and more. The latest addition, The Matrix Resurrections, hit theaters in 2021, offering a meta twist on the saga. Despite mixed reviews and underwhelming box office performance, the studio remains confident in the enduring appeal of The Matrix.

With Drew Goddard at the helm, The Matrix 5 promises to inject new life into the beloved franchise, honoring its legacy while pushing its boundaries in exciting new directions.
