We have reported on recent stirrings in the green-tinted world of The Matrix with some excitement. Now, with a new surprising addition to the cast, it seems like the project is starting to take shape.
Variety reports that Neil Patrick Harris will be the fourth cast member to join the project. The star of How I Met Your Mother and A Series of Unfortunate Events may seem a surprising choice, but Harris has proven himself an very versatile actor over the course of his career.
Harris will join fellow newcomer Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, alongside Keanu Reeves’s Neo and Carrie Ann Moss’s Trinity. No details are as yet available on the characters that the two new additions will be playing.
Lana Wachowski will sit in the director’s chair not joined, interestingly, by her sister Lily. The project is scheduled to start shooting in 2020.
