Matrix 4 seems to have adopted the same approach to filmmaking that enabled the original movie to be so groundbreaking. Details about the latest sequel have been under wraps of 1999’s The Matrix. However, recent comments about the sequel have indicated that the film’s production is trying to find unique ways to use state-of-the-art technology.
If that happens, then the latest sequel will find itself in the same league as the original. The Matrix 4 will see the return of Keanu Reeves. Carrie-Anne Moss, and Jada Pinkett Smith. It is directed by Lana Wachowski and one of the new members of the cast will be Yahya Abdul-Mateen II. He is rumoured to be playing a young Morpheus.
Yahya spoke to THR recently about his experience on set. The Aquaman alum expressed his amazement with the technology that Lana has included. He describes filmmaking, camera rigs are all something he has never seen before. Although his statement does not reveal anything about the story, his “ambitious” technology comment seems like an encouraging sign.
Wachowskis are known to push their abilities to film technology in a new direction. The latest sequel could be groundbreaking as well if they are embracing the tradition of the latest tech. Audiences had never seen anything like the first Matrix film in 1999. The story and the film’s presentation was fresh and unexpected.
The final instalment of the initial trilogy did take incredible leaps towards filmmaking technology. Lana Wachowski might use the film as an opportunity to do something new while audiences will also likely see the fun and nostalgic tricks repeated from The Matrix.
