Looks like no one will be taking the red pill again anytime soon. Over the weekend, reports surfaced that during a talk at the London International School of Performing Arts, actor Keanu Reeves revealed, among many other things, that the Wachowskis had finished a two picture treatment for more "The Matrix" sequels with an eye to do it in 3D. One little problem however. Keanu Reeves never gave that talk.

We reached out to reps for the actor and were told that "none of it is true…he did not speak nor get an award from the from the London International School of Performing Arts." So, chalk this one up to a fan hoax and nothing more.

However, if you do want to see Keanu Reeves once again kick some ass, he's gearing up for the 3D samurai tale "47 Ronin," which will be going in front of cameras this year and is slated for a November 21, 2012 release.

    I believe this webtoon sums up our feelings on the subject:

    Phew, was worried there for a while.

    Screen Rant debunked it 6 hours before this from the school, Reeves' rep and the studio.

    Hearing that the Wachowskis were again working on 2 sequels to the Matrix Trilogy was like deja vu, which should've tipped us off to the fact this AICN report was a glitch...

    Still, it would've been so awesome if this was true. I'm down for more Matrix movies, but only if the Wachowskis do them... Heck, I'll settle for more Matrix anime...

    Glad to know that wasn't true.

    But the headline is misleading. Keanu has actually been in London since mid-Jan to promote "Henry's Crime." and to prepare for "47 Ronin."

    AICN remains the worst.

    And yet another hoax bites the dust. Thanks.
