UPDATE: So much for this story. A representative for the London School of Performing Arts tells Screen Rant that no such appearance ever happened.
ORIGINAL: A source for AICN reports that Keanu Reeves was the guest of honour at the London School of Performing Arts University recently to promote his upcoming film “Henry’s Crime”. While there though, he talked about upcoming projects for him.
At present he’s preparing for “47 Ronin”, the samurai film he says will be a hard “R” rated “3D action feast that will deliver some great martial art set pieces”. Reeves is currently in the second month of a six month training program.
He says he met Wachowski’s for lunch over Christmas and they had revealed that they had completed work on a two picture script treatment that would see Reeves return to the world of “The Matrix” as Neo. The pair have apparently already met with James Cameron to discuss 3D technology.
Reeves added 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 revolutionise the action genre like the first movie.”
How long before this comes off? A while it would seem as the Wachowski’s are working on “Cloud Atlas” at the moment. When that’s done he expects to talk with them again.
He also revealed that the Wachowski’s had just sold the most expensive script in history to Warner Brothers – a modern futuristic take on “Robin Hood” which the studio reportedly paid $5 million for the rights to. Will Smith is tipped to head up the picture which will “have the same impact visually and technically that Terminator 2 had.”
Finally he mentioned he’d still be up for a third “Bill and Ted”.
