How Carrie-Anne Moss Really Feels About Returning To The Matrix – Screenplay News
Based on what we’ve learned so far about “The Matrix Resurrections,” it was Lana Wachowski’s strong vision for a fourth installment that brought the franchise back to life after nearly two decades. If Carrie-Anne Moss had any doubts about returning to reprise her role, it sounds like they were cleared up after reading the screenplay.
“When it was brought to me in the way that it was brought to me, with incredible depth and all of the integrity and artistry that you could imagine, I was like, ‘This is a gift,’” Moss explained to Empire. “It was just very exciting.”
Wachowski collaborated with the writers David Mitchell and Aleksandar Hemon to bring the ideas behind “The Matrix Resurrections” to life. Both Moss and Keanu Reeves told Empire that when they got their eyes on the screenplay for the film, they couldn’t possibly say no.
“That’s the only reason to do it,” Reeves said of the screenplay, which he also referred to as “a wonderful story that resonated with me.” He went on to add, “To work with her again is just amazing. It’s been really special, and the story has, I think, some meaningful things to say, and that we can take some nourishment from.”
