Keanu Reeves kept The Matrix’s red pill.


Keanu Reeves says that he kept the original red pill from the set of The Matrix and gives an update about Constantine 2.

During a recent Reddit AMA (Ask Me Anything), Keanu Reeves was asked if he had ever stolen anything from the set, and while Keanu Reeves noted that he’s never actually stolen anything, he does have a few pieces of movie memorabilia, including the iconic red pill from The Matrix.

Not stolen… the watch and wedding ring from John Wick, a sword from 47 Ronin, and the first red pill that the Wachowski’s ever gave me.

As Morpheus says in The Matrix, “You take the blue pill… the story ends, you wake up in your bed and believe whatever you want to believe. You take the red pill… you stay in Wonderland, and I show you how deep the rabbit hole goes.” A tiny red capsule pill may not seem like the most attention-grabbing piece of memorabilia, but if anyone has it, I’m glad it’s Keanu Reeves.

Reeves confirmed to Reddit that they had spoken with James Gunn regarding the project. However, a Warner Bros. spokesperson confirmed that it was still being pursued. Original director Francis Lawrence is said to be back at the helm of the sequel, with Akiva Goldsman (I Am Legend) writing the script.The original Constantine movie found Constantine helping an LAPD detective (Rachel Weisz) prove that her sister’s death wasn’t a suicide, but was, in fact, something much more sinister.Related

to be developed with an R-rating. “One thing I loved about the first movie was that we followed Warner Bros.’ rules for making a PG-13 movie. This included violence, blood, language and sexuality. Lawrence said. “But, the ratings board gave us an R based on their gray zone of intensity. My biggest regret was that we have an R-rated film that is actually a PG-13 movie. If I had to make an R-rated movie, I would have made it. I would have made it more scary and violent, and made it an R-rated movie. The idea is this time, at least for me, is to really go at it and make a real R-rated Constantine which is, I think, what people always wanted originally, not the PG-13 version that just happens to get an R.
