Dropping by mainly to promote the newly released Bill & Ted Face the Music, Reeves, who happens to turn 56 on Wednesday, said he was impressed with the Matrix project, which reunites him with writer-director Lana Wachowski. The actor says she has “created a beautiful story and a beautiful script.”
He added, “And I am really grateful to be here and be a part of this story.”
Along with Reeves, Carrie-Anne Moss will reprise her role from previous films, which started with the 1999 original.
Production on the film was halted March 16 because of the novel coronavirus pandemic. However, it has since resumed in Berlin, Reeves confirmed.
Warner Bros. pushed the release of Matrix 4 back from its original May 21, 2021, date to April 1, 2022, after the COVID-19 delay.
