Neil Patrick Harris has recently joined the cast of the upcoming film “Matrix 4” and will be seen sharing the big screen with Keanu Reeves. Lana Wachowski, one half of the Wachowskis - the other being Lilly - who directed all the three films, will be writing and directing the 4th installment of the film.
However, the details of Harris’s character have not been yet announced by the Warner Bros. The old characters, Neo and Trinity will be reprised by actors Reeves and Carrie-Anne Moss. The Aquaman star will join the famous Keanu Reeves and Carrie-Anne Moss, who will be reprising their original roles in the film.
The studios had been figuring a way to get Matrix back in the market, but had to slow down the project due to the production rights. The studio has recently seen the opportunity to ramp up development, with Reeves boasting a strong summer that included box office hits 'John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum' and 'Toy Story 4', in addition to a solid script from Wachowski.
However, the script details are still unknown. According to rumors, a young Morpheus could appear in the movie. As per reports, sources close to the film would not confirm Abdul-Mateen’s specific role. Statistics reveal that the previous films, 'The Matrix', 'The Matrix Reloaded', and 'The Matrix Revolutions', starring Reeves and Moss, collectively made more than $1.6 billion at the global box office, all scripted and directed by Lana and her sister.
The first, "Matrix", released in 1999 followed by "The Matrix Reloaded" and "The Matrix Revolutions", depicted a dystopian future where artificial beings have taken over humanity, which is unknowingly trapped inside a simulated reality, called the Matrix. The trilogy collectively earned over USD 1.6 billion worldwide.
