Yahya Abdul-Mateen II (Aquaman) is set to star in the upcoming recently announced fourth instalment in the Matrix franchise.
Warner Bros. announced in August that a fourth “Matrix” movie is officially in the works, with Reeves and Moss returning and Wachowski on board to write and direct. Warner Bros. Pictures and Village Roadshow Pictures will produce and globally distribute the film.
The three previous films — The Matrix, The Matrix Reloaded and The Matrix Revolutions — have collectively earned more than $1.6 billion at the global box office. All three were written and directed by Lana and her sister, Lilly, and starred Reeves and Moss.
Abdul Mateen is perhaps best known for playing Manta in Warner Bros. DC Comics film adaption Aquaman. He also portrayed Lupita Nyong’o’s character’s father in Jordan Peele’s hit Us.
