And according to a ‘non-definitive list of actors who have received $30 million or more as compensation for their services in a single production’ as reported by LadBible, Keanu has bagged a whopping $156,000,000 from the franchise.
That figure is just a few million more than the $10 million base salary Reeves earned for movie that started the franchise, 1999’s The Matrix.
The report added that Reeves would receive, ‘back-end payment’ on top of his base salary after The Matrix Resurrections finished its theatrical run.
