Andy and Lana Wachowski are rumoured to be working on new Matrix films
The Matrix hit cinemas in 1999 and changed the way films would be made forever. Hollywood was moving onwards and upwards into the new Millenium with a series of memorable special effects. The second film was an arguably good follow-up, whilst the third was an absolute disappointment. Leaving us cringing with far from realistic violence, we can conclude that this classic should have been left alone.

Matrix fans will be thrilled to hear rumours that a new trilogy of movies is in the pipeline.

Latino Review reported that the Wachowski siblings, Andy and Lana, have already started work on a new series of the sci-fi films.

The site has been told that the filmmakers - who directed the original trilogy - "have already started the writing process with early treatments and outlines already turned into the studio".

It went on: "Warner Bros is desperate for a surefire franchise and will be making a push to have the new Matrix films ready to go up against any new Star Wars and Avatar films by 2017."

The site suggested the new instalments could be prequels.

The Matrix, starring Keanu Reeves, Carrie-Anne Moss and Laurence Fishburne, was released in 1999 and became a cult hit.

It was followed by The Matrix Reloaded and The Matrix Revolutions in 2003.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Leo:

Trust your intuition about a domestic matter. If you think it's time to get a new place, start looking for one. You could find a home that cultivates tranquillity and relaxation. Escaping the fray will be a relief. Although you enjoy socialising, you also crave private time. Being able to watch movies, read books and listen to music replenishes your batteries. A needy relative could request help. This would be a good time to establish some healthy boundaries. Stop dropping everything for this relative's benefit.More
