Keanu Reeves fans, rejoice: the actor is slated to return to The Matrix for a fourth time. As Variety reports, Reeves and Carrie-Anne Moss will reprise their roles as Neo and Trinity in a new installment of the series directed by Lana Wachowski.

Production will reportedly begin in early 2020, and the script will be written by Wachowski, along with authors Aleksander Hemon and David Mitchell. “Many of the ideas Lilly and I explored 20 years ago about our reality are even more relevant now,” Wachowski said in a statement. “I’m very happy to have these characters back in my life and grateful for another chance to work with my brilliant friends.”

The first Matrix movie celebrated its 20th anniversary this past March. Collectively, the three films have raked in over $1.6 billion.

“We could not be more excited to be re-entering ‘The Matrix’ with Lana,” Warner Bros. Picture Group chairman Toby Emmerich told the publication. “Lana is a true visionary — a singular and original creative filmmaker — and we are thrilled that she is writing, directing and producing this new chapter in ‘The Matrix’ universe.”
