Ja sådan foroven så det ud i en længere periode.
Begge “fjerde dels takter” af Keanu Reeves franchisende Matrix og John Wick, havde begge premiere dato samme dag, nemlig 21. maj 2021. Ren galimatias.
Nu ligger det dog sådan at Keanu Reeves har ustyrligt meget travlt med indspilningerne af Matrix 4 med store dele af John Wick holdets stunt crew, så premiere datoen på John Wick 4 er nu rykket et år frem, nemlig til den 27. maj 2022.
Så det skulle vel give premieren på endnu et opkommende Keanu Reeves hit, nemlig Bill & Ted Face the Music 21. august i år, lidt pusterum for dennes, dog ikke fjerde, men 3. opus?
Dannelses og overgangsfilmen The Matrix, året 1999.
1959 havde Ben Hur. 1969 Easy Rider. 1979 Alien – Den 8. passager osv.
Men året 1999, var virkelig “Party like it´s 1999” som afdøde Prince sang, for med The Matrix blev vi perfekt indført i det nye årtusindende.
En perfekt “techno-triller” og genre perle, for alle dem/os der syntes der manglede noget dengang.
The Matrix var lige DET vi manglede dengang, og filmen er nu en klassiker på(næsten?) lige fod med Alien – Den 8. Passager.
Men så dukkede Matrix: Reloaded og Matrix: Revolutions op og……. SUK!
En RIGTIG efterfølger duo. Stort ØV!.
Efterfølgende fik vi som “tak” fra The Wachowski instruktørerne: Speed Racer, Cloud Atlas og – GISP! – Jupiter Ascending!
Derfor håber vi at:
NU sker der noget Neo-routisk?
“It’s definitely, from what I know of it, it’s incredibly fun. I think if you’re a fan of the original trilogy you’re gonna love this. Coming back with a vengeance!
They(crewet. red.) were really cool. They asked us to help out with the choreography and some of the physical training for the guys. I’m helping out a little bit for a sequence, I think Dave’s( Leitch red.)helping out for a sequence. Lana’s(Wachowski red.) come back with a lot of love to have a pseudo-family reunion, so that’s been a lot of fun. It’s been good to see a lot of the crew members again. We just finished doing a sequence in San Francisco before the pandemic started.”
“It’s more about the creative concept of some of the choreography and backing them up with stuff. Other than the Matrixes, most of their stuff…what makes [Lana] so great is she directs her own action. We’ve had second unit directors on some of the Matrixes just because of the logistics involved. But of late, and especially on Matrix 4, she’s directing her own action. The second units for them are mostly establishing shots, the B-sides of the some of the compositions for some locations. But Lana(Wachowski red.), she does her own action. She weaves it into the main unit stuff, which is why their stuff looks so good.”
Sådan siger John Wick instruktøren Chad Stahelski om den opkommende og længe ventede fjerde del af Matrix sagaen. Han er nemlig selv indblandet i stuntarbejdet.
Omkring arbejdet med den kommende John Wick 4 siger han:
“Neither [David Leitch] or I hides from the the fact we were stuntmen. I’m pretty proud of it, like, cool. But we certainly don’t try to hide it. Like we’re just directing and we deal with that, like, ‘Yes, I want to make action movies.’ I think Dave and I were both good at what we did as stuntmen and as choreographers. So, we don’t want to lose that. I want to be cool with the action. I want to be a better director, but that doesn’t mean I want to do less action or have less to do with the action. I guess the third one just felt like I needed a place to go after number two, and I had these ideas. It kind of became that wacky action movie. There’s been a couple days where I’ve decided to do number four and I’ve woken up in a cold sweat going, ‘Horses! How do I beat horses?!’ Like, I have no fuckin’ idea, to tell you the truth. […] I think I have a lot of really cool ideas for the next one that I think are different and shocking and fun and unique. How to do them, I have no fuckin’ idea right now. I’m still figuring it out.”
