Priyanka Chopra Jonas’ character in the new Matrix movie
Priyanka Chopra Jonas has opened up about her character in the new Matrix movie, to be known as ‘The Matrix 4’, in a recent interview with Variety. The 38-year-old actress has confirmed that although fans won’t see her character “frozen in the air and kicking someone in the face” in the movie, but that she has a lot to bring to the table.
“I can’t say much, but she’s something you don’t expect. What I can say is I finished filming and it was the first movie I did after lockdown and I’ve never felt safer on a set,’ said the Indian-American actress.
A little bit on The Matrix 4
The new Matrix movie is a part of the original Matrix franchise with the first movie that came out in 1999. Other than Priyanka Chopra Jonas as an addition, The Matrix 4 will also bring back most of the original cast, including Keanu Reeves who plays the main character Neo and Carrie-Anne Moss who plays the character Trinity.
The Matrix 4 will also include actors Yahya Abdul-Mateen II and Jessica Henwick, although not much is known about their characters yet. However only one member from the original cast won’t be returning, that is, Gina Torres who plays the role of Cas, a character who was alive in the last movie, unlike Neo or Trinity.
In another interview with Variety, Gina Torres opened up saying, “Not to be bitter or anything, but the people that are actually in the movie, I believe died. “And the people that aren’t didn’t. So that’s all I have to say about that. I’m so curious about where they’re going with this. And what’s their jumping-off point and what story they want because it just felt like they told it.”
So it is still unknown how the new movie will play out, whether it will be a continuation of the previous movies or will the entire story will set off in a new direction after all. As far as information regarding The Matrix 4 is concerned, Priyanka Chopra Jonas’ interview with Variety reveals little to nothing. According to Cinema Blend, Keanu Reeves has revealed that The Matrix 4 will include a great love story and that the action is gonna be amazing.
The new Matrix movie is directed and co-written by Lana Wachowski, sister of Lilly Wachowski, who also directed the original Matrix trilogy. According to Cinema Blend, the delay in the filming of the movie pushed the premiere to December of this year. Production has been finally wrapped and now all that remains is editing and adding substantial visual effects. Hopefully, a trailer would be released later this year. The Matrix 4 is set to in cinemas and on HBO Max on December 22, 2021.
