The man, the myth, the legend is back...and more dressed down than ever...? Matrix star, Keanu Reaves was spotted strolling down San Francisco's 'Kearny' and 'Jackson' Streets this week, and it appears it's just confirmed all of our hopes and dreams: The Matrix 4 is officially on its way, and we've got everything you need to know.

Residents making their rounds to work Wednesday morning were in for one sweet treat, when they spotted the 55 year-old being filmed amongst a crowd of extras, as the cameras were rolling. Of course, you can bet they quickly took to twitter to share their excitement with the rest of us.

It's been almost two decades since we were last blessed with Neo and his futuristic friends. "It's a very exciting, relevant script that I'm honoured to be a part of," Watchmen's Yahya Abdul-Mateen II teased, after landing a role in the latest installment.

You can also expect to catch Trinity and Niobe, as Carrie-Anne Moss and Jada Pinket Smith have officially signed on to retrieve their roles for the 4th Matrix Film. Jonathan Groff and Neil Patrick Harris have also been said to debut in the upcoming film.

So, when can you expect to catch your favorite hacker and crime-stopping entourage? Last month, Warner Bros. announced they've set May 21, 2021 as the movie's official release date. Oddly enough, that's the same day Reaves's John WickChapter 4 is set to drop, so we'll have to wait and see how that plays out...
