A little known fact, the director duo Chad Stahelski and David Leitch of  The Matrix 4 started their first profession in Hollywood as stuntmen. From that, they acquired the ability to flawlessly screening and directing scenes - an integral factor in building the “Baba Yaga” John Wick figure. The duo had also participated in three previous The Matrix films, in which Chad performed as Keanu Reeves’ double. Their experience together brought them closer and paved the way for the blockbuster John Wick.

With such a well-coordinated history, it’ll be a big miss if the talented duo doesn’t join Keanu in The Matrix 4. The movie had been shooting for 4 weeks when it was postponed because of Covid -19. In an interview with the Collider, Chad confirmed The Matrix 4 team asked them to choreograph the action scenes and scheduled for the cast’s practice.

Directors of the John Wick series will reunite with Keanu Reeves to assist him in the action scenes of The Matrix 4.

Usually, action blockbusters will have their own team of martial art directors to achieve the most realistic and thrilling scenes. Chad Stahelski himself has also participated in many major projects such as Captain America: Civil War or Birds of Prey. However, he noted that The Matrix 4 don’t have that director board. Instead, he and David only play a professional consultant role, and all the footage will be directed by Lana Wachowski.

That Lana directs all of the action scenes herself is why she’s such a great director, Chad Stahelski said. He also shared that they only formed small directing teams to coordinate different segments of the previous The Matrix series. After that, Lana personally directed the action, and the same will happen in The Matrix 4. 

Chad didn’t share much about the script. However, he promised that The Matrix 4 would be “full of hatred”, thrilling actions and will certainly satisfy even the hardest fans. The movie welcomes the return of Keanu Reeves and Carrie Ann Moss as the famous Neo and Trinity.
