Reeves Talks 'Matrix' Sequel
It seems as if in order for Keanu Reeves to return for more Matrix films, there was more than just money and a script to be considered. As major part of his preparation for his role in The Matrix, Keanu Reeves had to go through martial arts training courtesy of Yuen Wo-ping, a Hong Kong director as well as fight choreographer. While talking to the Wall Street Journal, Reeves revealed, "He's the greatest. When you watch Wo-ping's fight scenes, you can see such joy in his work. He's amazing. The whole experience was special, one of the best of my life."
Regarding more Matrix films, Reeves reveals, "There's no question that I'd come back for two more." Reeves adds joking, "The real problem is Yuen Wo-ping. Who knows if he'll be too busy by then."
