Neo and Morpheus are pairing up once again for Keanu Reeves' highly-anticipated action thriller, John Wick 2. According to Variety, Laurence Fishburne will only be appearing for a brief cameo, but when it comes to a small Matrix reunion, we'll take what we can get.
All this talk of The Matrix has me feeling nostalgic. It's been over a decade since we first swallowed the Morpheus' red pill, but maybe if we're lucky there will be room for more Matrix alumni in Keanu's next movie. Here's some of the cast of The Matrix look like 16 years later:
Keanu Reeves - Neo

Keanu's kung fu knowledge certainly came in handy in the first John Wick, so I'm eager to see what he and Laurence Fishburne have in store for us in the sequel.
Other actors, old and new, joining Reeves and Fishburne in Chad Stahelski's John Wick 2 include Bridget Moynahan, Ruby Rose, John Leguizamo, Lance Reddick, Riccardo Scamarcio, Ian McShane, Common, and Peter Stormare.
