EXCLUSIVE: The last of Warner Bros feature productions, The Matrix 4, is temporarily on hold in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic.
The movie, a Village Roadshow co-production, was shooting in Berlin. Lana Wachowski directs and co-wrote the screenplay with David Mitchell and Aleksandar Hemon. The production recently finished shooting in San Francisco and had moved on to Germany. Filming will resume at a later date.
Matrix 4 stars Keanu Reeves (Neo), Carrie-Anne Moss (Trinity), Jada Pinkett Smith (Niobe) as well as newcomers Priyanka Chopra, Jessica Henwick, Ibarra, Neil Patrick Harris, Toby Onwumere, Brian J. Smith, Eréndira Ibarra, Andrew Caldwell and Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, who is rumored to be playing young Morpheus. Henwick is buzzed to play a female Neo-like character.
Wachowski is producing with Grant Hill, who executive produced Matrix Reloaded and Matrix Revolutions. The Matrix trilogy has amassed over $1.6 billion at the global box office.
Again, no one on the crew or cast has been diagnosed, but the production is taking the same precautions as other Warner Bros shoots like The Batman and Fantastic Beasts 3 in the UK, King Richard in Los Angeles, and Baz Luhrmann’s Elvis Presley movie in Gold Coast, Australia.
