Wow! The Matrix 4’s cast was already an outstanding one. It brings back Keanu Reeves and Carrie Anne Moss as well as a couple others classic characters. It adds Neil Patrick Harris, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Jessica Henwick and more. Now, Christina Ricci has joined the kung-fu, mindbender’s fourth film in the franchise.
Ricci was silently added to the cast and absolutely nothing is known about her character. But, that doesn’t matter at the moment. Ricci being added to this world is already fantastic news.
The Matrix 4 is still slated for December 22 of this year. Something about it seems a bit soon. But, the film was already well into production when Covid started up. So, we are hopeful that it will stick with that date. The Matrix 4 will also be another one of Warner Bros. films that will go to theater and HBO Max on the same day.
Ricci has already worked with The Wachowski’s on the very badass Speed Racer. So, she is no stranger to the genius of the director(s).
Recently, Ricci took on the role of Lizzie Borden in The Lizzie Borden Chronicles, where she owned the role and introduced us to a totally new side of herself.
We cannot wait to see Ricci join The Matrix. We are hoping to see her kicking ass and doing wire-work with the rest of the gang. We are also still hoping that we get a surprise in the form of Hugo Weaving’s Agent Smith and Laurence Fishburne’s Morpheus. Sure, they are saying that the two actors aren’t involved… but I’m holding out hope that they are just keeping super tight-lipped.
