“That’s the only reason I do it. Working with her again is amazing,” Reeves said. “It was really special. I think this story has some meaningful stuff and we can take some of that.”
Lana and Lilly Wachowski created the original 1999 film that is now considered iconic in the science fiction genre.
Reeves and his star Carrie-Anne Moss have discussed the sequel to Empire for its June 11 release of Heroes.
Moss, who portrays the character of Trinity in the franchise, said she was as surprised as viewers that another sequel was happening.
“I never thought it was going to happen,” she said. “It wasn’t on my radar at all.”
The star said she couldn’t resist the opportunity.
“When it was brought to me the way it was brought to me, with incredible depth and all the integrity and art you could have imagined, I was like,‘ This is a gift, ’” Moss said. “It was just very exciting.”
The film should be released in May.
