A new report from Collider is claiming that Mindhunter actor Jonathan Groff (Frozen, Frozen 2) has landed a role in Lana Wachowski’s Matrix 4.
Groff’s role is unknown by they’re quick to speculate that he could be playing an Agent, one of the programs within the Matrix created to snuff-out humans that become aware that they are an artificial reality.
Jonathan Groff, who plays Agent Holden Ford on Netflix’s Mindhunter and voices Kristoff in Disney’s blockbuster Frozen franchise, has signed on to join the cast of The Matrix 4, Collider has exclusively learned.
They’re also saying that Neil Patrick Harris (Starship Troopers, Gone Girl) is playing a villain.
The rest of the cast includes Keanu Reeves, Carrie-Anne Moss, Jada Pinkett Smith, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II (Aquaman, Watchmen), and Jessica Henwick (Game of Thrones, Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Godzilla vs Kong).
Hugo Weaving’s Agent Smith was the main protagonist in The Matrix trilogy.
Filming is said to kick-off early next year (possibly February) in Chicago, Illinois.
The first three movies were shot in Australia.
While there have been rumblings of the new film featuring a young Morpheus nothing has been confirmed concerning this new project and what direction they’re going with.
However, there is a good chance that the studio wants multiple new installments and this won’t be a one-off, I have to assume they’re aiming for a new trilogy.
Warner Bros. hasn’t officially given Matrix 4 either an official title or release date.
Neo (Keanu Reeves) believes that Morpheus (Laurence Fishburne), an elusive figure considered to be the most dangerous man alive, can answer his question — What is the Matrix? Neo is contacted by Trinity (Carrie-Anne Moss), a beautiful stranger who leads him into an underworld where he meets Morpheus. They fight a brutal battle for their lives against a cadre of viciously intelligent secret agents. It is a truth that could cost Neo something more precious than his life.
