Keanu Back For 'Matrix' 2 & 3
Keanu Reeves has reportedly reached a deal that will see him jack into The Matrix twice more. Australia's Sunday Telegraph was told by "a prominent industry insider" that the pact amounts to "a bigger deal than James Cameron got for Titanic."
Additionally, the paper reports that the Wachowski brothers negotiated for a cut of the film's total box office, and that the sequels will be filmed back-to-back in Sydney once again with sights set on releasing the pictures within months of each other (a la Lord of the Rings). There's little word on possible plot points save that the second movie will likely lead into the third with a cliffhanger.
