New ‘Matrix’ eyes 2003

F/X work in motion, lensing yet to begin

Warner Bros. will bow “Matrix Reloaded” in a day-and-date domestic and foreign wide release pegged for May 2003.

Warner Bros. won’t officially confirm the tentative plans, which rep a later opening than expectations to date of a fourth-quarter 2002 roll-out of the sequel to 1999’s blockbuster “The Matrix.”

“We never have had it scheduled,” Warners distrib prexy Dan Fellman stressed.

Fellman noted lensing has yet to start on the production, but said early effects work is going well. “We are right on schedule with the film,” he said.

A third “Matrix” pic is also in pre-production.
