John Wick Chapter 3 director Chad Stahelski says that the Wachowskis are doing a fourth Matrix film. Stahelski was speaking with Yahoo! Movies UK promoting the new Wick film and was asked about reports that Warner Bros. was moving ahead with a new entry in the iconic sci-fi franchise. In response, Stahelski — who was a stunt coordinator on the original film — said that the Wachowskis are in fact involved despite previous reports.

“I’m super happy that the Wachowskis are not just doing a Matrix, but they’re expanding what we all loved,” Stahelski said. “And if it’s anywhere near the level of what they’ve already done, it wouldn’t take more than a call to go, ‘Hey, we want you to be a stunt guy’ and I would probably go and get hit by a car.”

When asked if they were directing the film, Stahelski said he wasn’t sure if they were directing but confirmed they were involved. “Yeah,” he said. “And if they wanted help, I would absolutely put down whatever I was doing to help them.”

The site also asked Keanu Reeves if he would be interested if they had the right script, and he said, “That would be a gift. I wouldn’t say no to that. Yeah.”

Zak Penn, who was in talks to write the treatment for the new film, said in March that the movie would not be a remake or reboot.
