Canadian actor Keanu Reeves revealed that there is no plans to make a sequel to "The Matrix: Resurrections".

In a new interview on the Empire podcast, Reeves –  who reprised his role as Neo in the movie – disclosed that he didn’t think director Lana Wachowski was interested in doing another movie.

“If I had to cast a ballot – no, not a ballot, a vote – I would say that Lana would not do another Matrix,” he pointed out.

In a press statement, producer James McTeigue also affirmed there was no plans for any more Matrix movies.

“At the moment, it is just the movie you’ve seen. We’ve got no prequel in mind. We’ve got no sequel in mind. We’ve got no further trilogy.” he added

This comes after the movie struggled at the box office, taking in just $22.5million by December 26 in the US.

"The Matrix: Resurrections" was released on December 22.

The movie also featured Carrie-Anne Moss reprising her role as Trinity, Jada Pinkett Smith as Niobe, Lambert Wilson as The Merovingian, and Daniel Bernhardt as Agent Johnson.

It was solely directed by Wachowski, who co-directed and co-wrote the first three installments with sister Lilly Wachowski.

“The Matrix Resurrections” also starred Neil Patrick Harris, Christina Ricci, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Priyanka Chopra, Andrew Caldwell, Jonathan Groff, Jessica Henwick, Ellen Hollman, Eréndira Ibarra, Toby Onwumere, Max Riemelt, and Brian J. Smith.
