Journalists of The Playlist, citing the French edition of Allocine, said that in Matrix 4 a character familiar to us from previous films may appear — Merovingian, also known as Frenchman.
At the moment, Lambert Wilson, who played this character in the last two parts, is in talks with a film studio. However, while the actor is worried that he will not be able to star in the film because of a tight schedule.
In the films, Merovingian was engaged in information trading and sheltering “programs” hiding from the System, which for one reason or another must be deleted. It is also assumed that once Merovingen was chosen, as was Neo.
Nothing is known about the plot of the upcoming movie, but we know that Keanu Reeves will appear in it in the role of Neo. The production and writing of the script are done by Lana Wachowski.
The premiere of Matrix 4 will be held May 21, 2021 — on the same day as John Wick 4. Filming should begin earlier this year.
