Joel Silver: Joel Silver, the producer, has been talking about The Matrix Reloaded in the following article released by Coming Soon! Basically: The movie is going to cost a TON, and that's a good thing. Keanu is a hard worker, which allows him to bring better than cutting edge performances to the screen. Lastly, a spoiler: "At the end of the first sequel there's a car chase that takes place in the matrix. It's just so beyond anything you could ever imagine because there are no laws, no rules in that computerized world." Mr. Silver seems extremely excited about this movie, claiming that the fans will not be disappointed.
