Matrix 4 Set To Start Filming In February
It looks as though the fourth instalment of the Matrix is about to get underway, with a casting call looking for extras in an 'upcoming feature film'.
The casting agency is looking for men and women who are over the age of 18 for background work on the new movie, which will be filmed in San Francisco.
According to the Sacramento Bee, the executive director of the San Franciso Film Commission, Susannah Robbins has said that the organisation is working closely with the production and city to ensure filming 'goes smoothly'.
She said: "We don't have a permit finalized with them yet."
But the news outlet confirmed that she shared information about the movie, which was shown locals at a neighbourhood meeting - it apparently revealed that many of the scenes are 'action chase sequences, and you can expect to hear simulated gunfire, helicopters, pyrotechnics, stunt car driving and choreographed car crashes, and see smoke effects'.
It looks as though he might have been in town for a while, having been spotted eating ice cream alone in the Northern Californian city a couple of weeks ago, before being collared for a photo by a fan.
The actor, famous for his roles in the Bill & Ted movies, was pictured sitting alone outside a Baskin-Robbins outlet in Alameda, in the Greater San Francisco area.
He then posed in his usual nonchalant style for a picture alongside a clearly delighted fan.
According to local media, the 55-year-old casually wandered into the store and grabbed a double scoop cone of ice cream for himself, which - if it were anyone else - would be completely normal.
Speaking to Entertainment Tonight about the franchise's upcoming film, Reeves recently shared his excitement about the forthcoming project.
He said: "It's very ambitious. As it should be!"
Well, given that the groundbreaking first film of the series changed the way that everyone looked at visual effects and broke Reeves' name into the world of blockbuster cinema, he's got every right to be excited.
He'll return alongside fellow Matrix veteran Carrie-Anne Moss, and writer and director Lana Wachowski.
The next Matrix film is set for release on 21 May 2021.
