Keanu Reeves has given an update regarding the filming of the fourth Matrix movie. He said that The Matrix 4, whose production was halted in March due to the coronavirus pandemic, has resumed filming in Berlin.
While speaking to the Associated Press, Reeves said, “It’s great. It’s an honor to be working. I’m in Berlin, you can hear the sirens. You know, there’s some really thoughtful, effective protocols in place. The rhythm of filmmaking has been not really impacted or interrupted.”
Apart from Keanu Reeves, Carrie-Anne Moss and Jada Pinkett Smith will also make a comeback in the fourth Matrix movie. Priyanka Chopra, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Jessica Henwick, Neil Patrick Harris and Jonathan Groff are the new cast members.

The Matrix 4 was confirmed by Chad Stahelski, who directed Reeves in the John Wick films and who also served as a stuntman in the original trilogy, in May 2019.
Lana Wachowski and Lilly Wachowski helmed all the three original Matrix films, but Lilly will not be involved with the fourth film. This will be Lana’s solo project.
