Yahya Abdul-Mateen II and Neil Patrick Harris are among the new faces that will join The Matrix 4 – you can probably expect that title to change soon. The long-awaited sequel will also bring backKeanu Reeves, Carrie Anne-Moss, and writer and director Lana Wachowski, with Jada Pinkett Smith in talks to also return.
Now the cast for next installment continues to grow and has made a new addition. According to new reports, Iron Fist star Jessica Henwick will be joining the cast. More on the report below.
We’ve been hearing about a new installment in the Matrix franchise for some time now. Back in 2011 star Keanu Reeves said that sequels were being developed. Then in 2014 it was rumored that the next Matrix movies could be prequels. Then in 2017 came word that Warner Bros. was developing a reboot instead of sequels or prequels, which was followed a few days later by a denial of the reboot news from screenwriter Zak Penn, who had been hired to work on a new movie in the franchise at the time.
Things were quiet for a couple of years after that, but in August of this year it was confirmed that The Matrix 4 was finally becoming a reality with original stars Reeves and Carrie Ann Moss returning. Lana Wachowski, who wrote and directed the original trilogy with Lilly Wachowski, is also returning though it doesn’t appear that Lilly is involved at the moment.. And now, more casting has been announced. Last week Yahya Abdul-Mateen II was cast in the sequel, and this week Neil Patrick Harris signed on. Jada Pinkett Smith is also in talks to return.

He’s a wealthy A-list actor who’s a total babe, but yet is still seemingly approachable; he’s kind and generous, even giving up part of his salary for a film crew; he’s like a regular person riding the NYC subway system, except he actually offers up his seat to others. You know him, he’s the Internet’s boyfriend, Keanu Reeves! And now he’s the subject of For Your Consideration: Keanu Reeves, a new book composed of critical essays and tidbits about this Hollywood superstar and all-around nice guy.

A big part of what makes the John Wick franchise so popular is its mythology. It’s an action-packed trilogy that sees a secret world of assassins living amongst the populous. The fight choreography is splendid, with each fight and gun battle looking more like a beautiful stylized dance. It is the perfect way to showcase stunt work and highlight how vital stunt people are to a film like this one.
Now, John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum gets its home release on 4K, Blu-ray, and DVD. Check out my review of the film and all of its bonus features here below.
Zach Galifianakis‘s Between Two Ferns is his hilarious take on celebrity talk shows that take place on public access television. He’s had stars like Brad Pitt, President Barack Obama, Natalie Portman, Bradley Cooper, Will Ferrell, and Hillary Clinton on his show.
Now it’s time for one of Funny or Die’s funniest bits to go from short video format to a Netflix film. And rather than make that bit with a cinematic feel, there will be an actual narrative woven into it. The stakes are high after one of the celebrities Galifianakis is interviewing is accidentally killed, forcing executives to axe the show. That is, unless, he can produce ten successful episodes before the deadline. Forced to go on the road, the interviewer will do what it takes to save it and restore his reputation. Netflix has released an official trailer for the film, which you can check out below.
