Matrix 4 Stops Production Due To COVID-19

Another title joins the growing number of movies delayed due to the coronavirus pandemic.

First reported by Deadline, Warner Bros. has temporarily suspended productions of Keanu Reeve’s Matrix 4 due to safety concerns surrounding the coronavirus pandemic. 

The film had been in production since February and was getting ready to shoot in Berlin before Warner Bros. made the decision to put a pause of the film’s production. It is unclear if this delay will impact the movie’s 2021 release date.

No one on the crew or cast have been diagnosed with COVID-19 but the studio is still taking precautions to ensure it doesn’t actually happen. 

Keanu Reeves and Carrie-Anne Moss will be reprising their roles in the film, alongside newcomers Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Jonathan Groff, Jessica Henwick and Neil Patrick Harris

Matrix 4 is one of several Warner Bros. projects to be affected by the coronavirus outbreak. Filming for The Batman and Fantastic Beast 3 have also been postponed. Other films such as Sony’s Uncharted and MGM’s No Time to Die have also been affected.
