Following the release of The Matrix Resurrections, Keanu Reeves declares he really wants to team up with Carrie-Anne Moss for a John Wick film.

During a recent interview with People, Moss stated she loves Keanu Reeves’ role in the John Wick films. “I really started to understand Keanu’s outrageous gift for telling a story through his body. And I didn’t fully understand that until I went deep into John Wick with one of my children. It was very bonding for us too.”

Moss also stated that it was amazing to have the experience with her son and to watch the depth that Keanu Reeves is able to create with his body. “It’s really an art form,” she explained.

In response, Reeves said that her Matrix character is his favorite Moss role. “I’m going to stay with Trinity, I think. But in all your performances, your eyes, I always see what’s behind the eyes. What communicates. And there’s always such a presentness and even in vulnerability. A strength.”

When asked if he would like Moss to appear in future John Wick films, Keanu Reeves said that would be awesome. “Do you want to play an assassin?” He asked Moss. She immediately replied, “I’d love it.”

When Moss said she’d start practicing for a potential John Wick role, Keanu Reeves responded, “Be careful for what you wish for. I’m on it now.”

In regards to teaming up with director Lana Wachowski for the latest The Matrix film, Keanu Reeves shared, “This one felt more emotional. Just feeling like we’re not going to do it again. So I was trying to soak it all in.” 

Moss then added, “Yeah. Enjoy every moment of it. The experience lives in you forever.”

Keanu Reeves’ ‘John Wick: Chapter 4’ Release Pushed to 2023 

According to Deadline, Keanu Reeves’ John Wick: Chapter 4 release has officially been pushed to 2023. The film was originally set to premiere in theaters on May 27, 2022. 

The media outlet reported that the decision to move John Wick: Chapter 4 was made after Paramount decided to premiere Tom Cruise’s Top Gun: Maverick on May 27, 2022, as well. John Wick; Chapter 4 will now premiere on March 24, 2023. Deadline then states that sources also revealed that another reason why the film’s premiered date shifted was due to production stopping and moving to Japan. 

The Lionsgate team also dropped a new teaser. The caption reads, “Be seeing you. 3.24.23.”

There’s not really much known about the plot for John Wick: Chapter Four. Starring alongside Reeves in the film is Donnie Yen, Bill Skarsgård, Ian McShane, Laurence Fishburne, Hiroyuki Sanada, Shamier Anderson, Lance Reddick, and Rina Sawayama. Besides John Wick: Chapter 4, Sony’s untitled George Foreman biopic will also be premiering on March 24, 2023.
