I just recently saw Aquaman’s Yahya Abdul-Mateen II this past weekend when he was at the NYCC to promote HBO’s Watchmen series and it seems that the actor is on a role as Variety is reporting that Mateen has scored a major lead role in the highly And I do mean highly anticipated Matrix 4 which will also see franchise stars Keanu Reeves and Carrie-Ann Moss returning.
We know next to nothing else about the long awaited fourth film but we do know that Lana Wachowski will also return to helm the project. Unfortunately it looks as if Laurence Fishburne will not be returning as rumors have w that a younger actor will be portraying the role which leads many to believe that Mateen May be that somebody. Only time will tell when mire is revealed.
Per Variety: “Sources tell Variety that director Lana Wachowski met with actors for the secret role over the last week and in recent days, Abdul-Mateen emerged as the frontrunner to join Keanu Reeves and Carrie-Anne Moss, who will be reprising their roles in the film.
Warner Bros. announced in August that a fourth “Matrix” movie is officially in the works, with Reeves and Moss returning and Wachowski on board to write and direct. Warner Bros. Pictures and Village Roadshow Pictures will produce and globally distribute the film.“
Matteen is also known for starring in Jordan Peele’s hit horror film Us and it looks as if production is set to start in early 2020.
Keep it locked and loaded right here for more to drop for Matrix 4!
