Yuen Denies Matrix Rumors
Contrary to rumors, Yuen Woo-Ping--the martial arts choreographer on the upcoming Matrix sequels--denied to the Oriental Daily newspaper that he was quitting or that star Keanu Reeves had broken his ankle, the Coming Attractions Web site reported. Yuen also denied that kung-fu actor Jet Li was ever in advanced talks to appear in the sequels.
The Matrix 2 and 3 are still in pre-production and will reportedly begin shooting in Australia, San Francisco and other locations in March.
