A press conference took place in Sydney last week – its widely known the over a year long shooting schedule is coming to a close in a month or two, and one juicy sliver of info came from Joel Silver who confirmed that all that’s basically left to shoot is the 14-minute ending sequence of ‘Revolutions’ which will be like nothing ever seen on screen before as they’re planning to raise the FX bar so high that no-one will even attempt to come close to what they do with these movies. I wasn’t the only one there that day, so was Sci-Fi Wire who mentioned this quote from Keanu: “The story kind of goes outside of the Matrix and starts to concern itself with the machines in Zion…So it’s almost [that] what he can do in the Matrix is not enough. And he’s still on the path of discovery and choice. He’s told by the Oracle that…he has some choices that he’ll have to make that will affect the survival of the human race. And there are some hardships. And all of us are trying to save the world. And the development between Neo and Trinity [Carrie-Anne Moss] is explored, and with Morpheus [Laurence Fishburne] and [Agent] Smith [Hugo Weaving]. And so I think that’s just about it. It’s the development of the hero journey for my character, which is new challenges and choices. And it’s not so much about being born. He wanted to find out where he was. Now he knows. Or he thinks he knows”. There’s also an article up at The Sydney Morning Herald, whilst ‘Smilin Jack Ruby’ and I did a tour of the original first movie’s locations and photos/details from which are up at CHUD. Expect lots of details from the production over the course of the next year. Thanks to ‘Kenton’.
