Frozen 2 And Mindhunter Star Jonathan Groff Joins Matrix 4 Cast

Frozen 2 And Mindhunter Star Jonathan Groff Joins Matrix 4 Cast

Jonathan Groff, one of the stars of Frozen 2 and Mindhunter, is about to guzzle down the red pill and join the cast of the as-yet-untitled fourth film in the Matrix franchise.

The report, which was first circulated by Collider, suggests that Groff has agreed to join the cast, but we don't know exactly who he is going to play.

Well, anyone who has seen him as Kristoff in Frozen 2 won't have much to go on there, but those who've seen his role in Netflix's Mindhunter might be able to make a couple of decent assumptions.

He'd be fantastic as another agent, let's just say that.

The forthcoming film which, for the sake of ease, let's just call Matrix 4, will see Keanu Reeves and Carrie-Anne Moss reprise their roles as Trinity and Neo.

We also know that Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, who is one of the stars of Watchmen and Aquaman, is on board as well.

Jada Pinkett-Smith will return to play Niobe, while Jessica Henwick and - perhaps surprisingly - Neil Patrick Harris are also slated to feature.

Abdul-Mateen recently told EW: "It's a very exciting, relevant script that I'm honoured to be a part of."

Well, that's alright then, isn't it?

This will be the first movie in the Matrix universe for 16 years. The previous three films - The Matrix, The Matrix Reloaded and The Matrix Revolutions - took in more than $1.6 billion globally at the box office.

So this latest film has big shoes to fill.

Lana Wachowski will return to write, direct and produce this latest effort, and recently received praise from Toby Emmerich, the chairman of Warner Bros. Pictures Group

He said: "We could not be more excited to be re-entering The Matrix with Lana,

"Lana is a true visionary - a singular and original creative filmmaker - and we are thrilled that she is writing, directing and producing this new chapter in the Matrix universe."

Wachowski herself added: "Many of the ideas Lilly and I explored 20 years ago about our reality are even more relevant now.

"I'm very happy to have these characters back in my life and grateful for another chance to work with my brilliant friends."

Unfortunately, that's all we've got to go on so far. No release date, no further plot information, we'll just have to wait until we hear more.

However, to paraphrase Morpheus in the first film in the franchise, no-one can be told what The Matrix 4 is. You have to see it for yourself.
