Via Variety, Warner Bros. has given the cast of The Matrix 4 eight week contract extensions to keep them in place through July 6. The studio is hoping that production will be able to restart by that point. The Matrix 4 had been slated to begin shooting in Berlin in mid-March. Regardless, it’s unclear if the studio’s plans still include a European shoot.
Keanu Reeves and Carrie-Anne Moss will be back as Neo and Trinity despite their apparent deaths in The Matrix Revolutions. Jada Pinkett-Smith will also reportedly reprise her role as Niobe.
Yahya Abdul-Mateen II (Watchmen) will have a major role in the sequel. Neil Patrick Harris, Brian J. Smith, Toby Onwumere, and Jonathan Groff have also joined The Matrix 4 cast in undisclosed roles.
The Matrix 4 was originally planned for a 2021 release. But Warner Bros. has yet to set a firm premiere date.
