While fans have loved Keanu Reeves and Chad Stahelski’s collaboration on the "John Wick" series, their relationship goes back to meeting on the set of the first "Matrix" film. The lineage between "John Wick" and "The Matrix" may not be obvious given how different their stories and characters are, but there are some connective threads. Reeves and Stahelski recently explained how the two action film franchises are tied together.

The frequent collaborators spoke about the connection between the two franchises during an interview with Wired. Stahelski was asked about his cameo role in "The Matrix Resurrections," which he cheekily called “tragic” after a not-so-great single-day shoot. Reeves played down the director’s account by saying he and Resurrections director Lana Wachowski thought his performance went well. All this "Matrix" talk led to the duo being asked about a possible connection between "John Wick" and the sci-fi franchise. While Reeves didn’t compare the franchises, he praised both series for their originality.
