The Matrix Reboots in 2014 with Justin Bieber, Selena Gomez and Jaden Smith

By Paul Martin April 1st, 2012, in Matrix Fans, Miscellaneous, The Matrix

Warner Brothers Pictures and Village Roadshow Pictures have teamed up to return us to the world of The Matrix in 2014.  To appeal to a broader audience, the story is being simplified and re-written as a PG-13 film, that could potentially become a Trilogy depending on how the first does.  One things for sure, the sequels are going to be given a completely different storyline that actually continues where the first one left off.

They’re relaunching the Matrix brand with a younger audience in mind, casting Justin Bieber in the role of Neo, Selena Gomez as Trinity, and Jaden Smith as Morpheus.  The real-life friendships between the three of them is one reason why they picked them to star in the films.

Also: this isn’t a musical, so they won’t be singing on screen.  That doesn’t mean they won’t be part of the soundtrack, though.  There’s no word on who is going to direct the film, nor who wrote it.  We do know that it is shooting this summer for a 2014 release, however.

Word is that Will Smith encouraged his son Jaden to take the role, having himself given up the role of Neo in the original Matrix trilogy.

Prepare for an onslaught of “Beliebers,” Matrix Fans.

      I’d say, good luck to her. I don’t see it happening, any more than I believe she’s truly the writer of “The Matrix Trilogy” or actually going to achieve making “The Matrix 4.”

    NO! no, don’t even try that! One of the best trilogies ever and a Neo magistrally interpreted by Keanu Reeves thrown away like garbage by WB to get the beliebers’ money… just, DON’T!

  7. DJ Drummond says:

    A Matrix movie with the Bieber as Neo would kill the franchise. Just about the worst possible casting for that role.

  8. Jared says:

    NO WAY! Justin Bieber is not going to be in this! Please do not let him be in there because I can NOT STAND HIM!
