Keanu Reeves is currently one of the most popular top actors in Hollywood. The 55-year-old has a list of films in which he ends up in the leading role or at least has a short appearance. Of these, Matrix 4 and John Wick 4 are among the projects that fans are most looking forward to. As it turns out now, the theatrical release of both projects is closer than we expected. In the 1980s, Keanu Reeves made his big breakthrough as an actor. During the 90s, he ended up in the Hollywood A-League through films such as Speed and Matrix. This was followed by other major blockbusters in the 2000s before a brief rest in Reeve's career. However, this did not last long, because in 2014 he returned to the big screen with John Wick.
Since then, the Canadian can hardly save himself from film offers. Among them is Bill & Ted 3, which is due to start in 2020 and should provide nostalgia for many fans. The fourth parts of Matrix and John Wick are now also pending. As Variety found out among other things, fans should prepare for the full load of Keanu Reeves in May next year. Both Matrix 4 and John Wick 4 are set to launch in American cinemas on May 21, 2021.
This will leave many cinema-goers spoiled for choice: Which action-cracker with Reeves do you want to see first? Even if the John Wick series became more successful with every part, the Matrix franchise still has the greater appeal. Before Matrix 4 was scheduled for May 21, 2021, this place belonged to the planned real adaptation of the cult anime Akira. Studio Warner has now canceled this project to give priority to the sci-fi sequel. So it may take a few more years before we can count on Akira.
