The Matrix 4 is an upcoming movie sequel in the American sci-fi action franchise, The Matrix. It is the fourth film to release in the series. Lana Wachowski is its director and co-writer. Moreover, she also has co-helmed the previous three films with two directors. This time, Warner Bros and Village RoadShaw are coming together for it.
In October 2019 when the sequel of this film was announced everybody was excited to see what will be in store for them. Warner Bros Studios boss Toby Emmerich said that they are extremely excited to re-enter The Matrix world with Lana as she has been a true visionary creative filmmaker. She is also producing this new chapter. We sure are thrilled upon hearing this. Let’s get into the details of this film.
Is there gonna be a Matrix 4 (release date)? When will it premiere?
Officially, the date for the release is 21st May 2021 in the UK and the US. However, the shooting of this film has been halted due to the major lockdown worldwide. It was also the same release date for Keanu Reeves’ John Wick 4, initially. (check: Sex Education Season 3.)
Now, the two are separated by a one-year gap. Filming began in February 2020 in San Francisco and then continued and moved to Berlin. However, in March 2020, the shoot had to stop. So, at the moment there is no announcement of the date being pushed. It is likely it might be delayed a little, but we will have to wait for the announcement since nothing is concrete as of now.
Who is in the Matrix 4 cast?
We will be seeing some of the familiar faces in the 4th part. We will see Keanu Reeves as Neo. Carrie-Anne Moss as Trinity. Jada Pinkett Smith as Niobe. Lambert Wilson as The Merovingian, He said that he will reprise his role in the movie as long as he can. If Merovingian comes back, we, for sure, can see his wife Persephone.
We will also be seeing more stars like Yahya Mateen (from Venom), Neil Patrick Harris (from How I Met Your Mother), Priyanka Chopra (from Baywatch), Jessica Henwick (from Iron Fist), Jonathan Groff (From Mindhunter), Toby Onwumere, Max Riemelt, Eréndira Ibarra, Andrew Caldwell (from iZombie), Brian J. Smith (from Sense8) and Ellen Hollman. Their roles haven’t been disclosed yet.
Rumors have it that Venom star Yahya Abdul-Mateen II would be seen playing a younger version of Morpheus. He was also seen in The Greatest Showman and HBO’s Watchmen. One confirmed star who won’t be back is Hugo Weaving as Agent Smith. Well, we have something to look forward to. A lot of known faces from many hit movies/series.
What is the Matrix 4 going to be about?
Like the cast is undisclosed even the plot has not been revealed to the public yet. As we all know that in the previous three parts, the trilogy’s main plot was wrapped up. We honestly don’t know what the fourth film in the franchise will be about.
However, we are guessing there could be an introduction to a new plot or new obstacle. Neither Lana Wachowski nor any of the cast will reveal it to you. We can only guess and make our own theories. Let us know what you think will be the plot?
Wachowski will co-write the screenplay with Aleksandar Hemon and David Mitchell, the authors of The Lazarus Project and Cloud Atlas, respectively. So, we are assured of getting something dense. (check: Blood and Water season 2.)
Is there a Matrix 4 trailer?
Since the filming just started in February and came to a halt in March 2020, the trailer won’t be released by the end of 2020. However, there were set pictures circulating around the internet. With the schedule we expected the trailer to be out soon but since there is a delay in the shoot, we may expect it to come out later than expected.
