"The Matrix" returns to the big screen

Well here's a shocker : apparently, Keanu Reeves, while speaking at the London International School of Performing Arts about his career, also mentioned that he spoke with the Wachowskis and that they had, to quote Ain't It Cool News :
"Completed work on a two picture script treatment that would see him return to the world of the matrix as Neo. Says the brothers have met with Jim Cameron to discuss the pro's and con's of 3D and are looking to deliver something which has never been seen again. Keanu stated that he still has an obligation to the fans to deliver a movie worthy of the title "The Matrix" and he swears this time that the treatment will truly revolutionize the action genre like the first movie. Wachowski's are working on a movie called "Cloud Atlas" at the moment, once that concludes they will talk again".
I was honestly not expecting that. I'm one of the few people who loves all three Matrix movies equally, but the beating they've taken, especially with "The Matrix Revolutions", will probably make people very cautious about flocking to see any next installments. I trust the Wachowskis to deliver a unique experience, but even I'm a little in doubt about expanding the universe of "The Matrix". Sure, there might be a lot of things to explore, but I think the franchise has exhausted its originality. Besides, I have the feeling they're considering another Matrix movie, just because of the 3D technology boom, not because they have any breakthrough ideas to deliver. We'll see.
