The pictures here were clicked while he was being dropped off to his hotel in Berlin by his girlfriend, Alexandra Grant. Berlin also happens to be the location for the Matrix film shoot. According to LadBible, the 57-year-old actor claims the sequel will be “something special.”
“We have a lot of hope and ambition, and we hope that people really enjoy them, and we have an ambition to make some really special films,” Reeves said. He went on to say that the director Lana Wachowski is “an incredible filmmaker” and artist. He also called the script she has written as “beautiful.”
The Matrix series is one of the most influential and iconic science-films to-date. While Reeves will be reliving the hero Neo, actress Carrie-Anne Moss will reprise the role of the female warrior Trinity. Also appearing from the old cast are Jada Pinkett-Smith as Niobe and Lambert Wilson as The Merovingian. New faces in the cast will include Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Jessica Henwick, Neil Patrick Harris, Priyanka Chopra and Jonathan Groff.
While the original shoot began in February, it was postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic lockdown. The pre-production phase resumed in August. In an earlier interview to The People, Reeves said all COVID-19 protocols will be followed diligently during the entire shoot. The film is reported to release on December 21, 2021.
