The Matrix 4 Adds Another Cast Member In Mystery Role

Ellen Hollman joins the cast.


As filming gets underway in San Francisco, The Matrix 4 continues to add to its cast. The Wrap reports that Spartacus actress Ellen Hollman has been cast in an unspecified role in the upcoming action movie starring Keanu Reeves, Carrie-Anne Moss, and Jada Pinkett-Smith.

Hollman would be just the latest new addition to the cast, following Neil Patrick Harris, Priyanka Chopra Jonas, Jessica Henwick, Jonathan Groff, and Yahya Abdul-Mateen II.

Given her background as a Jiu Jitsu martial artist, we might see Hollman performing stunts or action scenes in The Matrix 4, but this is only speculation. Hollman played Saxa on Seasons 2 and 3 of Spartacus, while she also had roles on Into the Badlands and NCIS: New Orleans.

Hugo Weaving is not going to return as Agent Smith due to a scheduling conflict.

Lana Wachowski returns to direct The Matrix 4. It comes to theatres on May 21, 2021--which is also the release date for another Reeves-starring action sequel, John Wick: Chapter 4.

The first Matrix movie brought in $463.5 million worldwide, and it spawned two sequels: 2003's Matrix Reloaded--grossing $742.1 million worldwide--and Matrix Revolutions--taking in $427.3 million worldwide. For more, check out The Matrix Sequels' 34 Dumbest Moments to relive the weirdness.
