Indeed, May 21, 2020 is about to become a Keanu Reeves national holiday after Warner Bros announced that the fourth movie in the Matrix franchise will be released on that day, putting it in a head-to-head with John Wick: Chapter 4.
May 21, 2021 is officially Keanu Reeves day.

55-year-old Keanu will reprise his role as Neo in Matrix 4 following an 18-year hiatus, while also kicking some serious ass as John Wick for the fourth time. The only tough decision really is which film you’re going to watch at the cinema first.
Wait, wait, wait, you’ll telling me in 2021 I can walk out of a new Keanu Reeves’ film and into a second new Keanu Reeves’ film on the same day

At first I didn’t think a fourth Matrix film was a good idea, because after all while the first one was obviously a cultural phenomenon, the second and third Matrix movies were pretty shitty. But since it’s been 18 years, why not give it another shot?
As for John Wick, all three movies have been good for the action movie genre and the character has already been solidified as one of the top tier action heroes in the business, so there’s always room for one more.
Keanu Reeves also has a big role in Cyberpunk 2077 – the video game that’s set to blow GTA V and Red Dead Redemption 2 out of the water in 2020. Looks like it’s all coming up Keanu in 2020.
