The Matrix 4: New Set Video Shows Keanu Reeves Filming A Scene

Filming has begun.


Filming on The Matrix 4 has begun in San Francisco, and videos and images from the set have emerged that provide the first look at Keanu Reeves in the upcoming action film.

In one scene, Reeves is seen blocking his eyes from the sun as he stares into the distance. A camera moves in before a director calls cut. Check out the video below, and another image further down.

Reeves returns in The Matrix 4 to play Neo once more. He's joined by Carrie-Anne Moss, who reprises her role as Trinity, and Jada Pinkett Smith as Niobe. Among the new cast members for the movie are Priyanka Chopra, Jonathan Groff, and Neil Patrick Harris.

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.
