So, The Matrix 4 is currently filming and many fans have been asking whether the film will feature Laurence Fishburne or not.
Well, according to the actor himself, he will not be in the movie, which is kind of sad.
Fishburn played Morpheus in the first three movies and he was one of the key characters in The Matrix franchise.
The film is being directed by Lana Wachowski and I do believe it finished filming a while ago.
The Matrix 4 is going see the likes of Keanu Reeves, Carrie-Anne Moss, Jada Pinkett Smith, Lambert Wilson, and Daniel Bernhardt reprise their roles from previous films.
Other additions to the cast include Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Neil Patrick Harris, Jessica Henwick, Jonathan Groff, Toby Onwumere, Max Riemelt, Eréndira Ibarra, Priyanka Chopra, Andrew Caldwell, Brian J. Smith, Ellen Hollman and Christina Ricci.
That is a pretty ridicilous cast, and adding Laurence Fishburne to it might have been just too much.
The Matrix 4 will not feature Laurence Fishburne says Laurence Fishburne
Here’s what Laurence Fishburne had to say about The Matrix 4 during his recent interview with Jake’s Takes:
I’m not involved. You’ll have to talk to Lana Wachowski. The only thing I can tell you is that Lana Wachowski can answer those questions for you better than I can.
Saying “I’m not involved” is pretty definitive as far as I’m concerned.
The film will be pretty interesting though, and I was hoping that Morpheus would turn up in the film.
