We never thought that The Matrix 4 would ever happen, but filming for the science fiction sequel is under way.
A photo from the set shows Keanu Reeves holding what looks like a script and wearing a hood to hide his face. He's also wearing a bath robe, but whether that's a costume Neo will wear in the film or he's just on his way to hair and make up, we don't know. We're not the Oracle!
Hopefully a filming photo showing Neo's full outfit will appear soon, because we're desperate to know if he will don the long leather coat again. It's quite a dated look, but it's also instantly recognisable, and we need to know if and how they will do it.
Carrie-Anne Moss (who's since starred in the likes of Marvel's Jessica Jones) is returning, and it looks like Jada Pinkett Smith is back too.
Newcomers to the franchise include How I Met Your Mother star Neil Patrick Harris, Aquaman actor Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Sense8 star Toby Onwumere, Iron Fist's Jessica Henwick, and Frozen 2 and Mindhunter star Jonathan Groff.
Lana Wachowski is returning to direct this one, and is co-writing the script with The Lazarus Project's Aleksandar Hemon and Cloud Atlas author David Mitchell.
Warner Bros has already pencilled in a release date for this one, planning to release it in cinemas on May 21, 2021. Fans have noted that that is the same day as another Keanu Reeves vehicle, John Wick 4.
