“We would sometimes sit there for an hour, waiting for the clouds to pass, then spinning around quickly.” Difficult to recognize the shots of a blockbuster of the caliber of Matrix 4 in the example cited by Neil Patrick Harris during an interview given to Variety. But it is nevertheless the film by Lana Wachowski, expected on December 15 on our screens, that it is. New to this universe, the ex-Barney of How I Met Your Mother reveals to have been surprised by the astonishing approach of the filmmaker, who directs alone, without her sister Lilly.

“I did not feel this feeling of grandeur because I had the feeling that [Lana] had found its right balance, filming on the fly, with natural light “, explains the actor whose role in the plot has not been revealed more than the synopsis of this fourth opus. “We could find ourselves turning several pages [de scénario] within thirty minutes, and it was over. You would think that a film as gigantic as this one would be 100% storyboarded upstream, with animatics and plans to tick. [une fois mis en boîte]. But I think she’s been through this before, three times, and I suspect she wants to do things her way today. And I didn’t often feel like I was shooting something huge because she made it all feel intimate. “

Paused last spring, like all blockbusters, due to the coronavirus pandemic, filming resumed in July and ended in November. And the biggest mystery reigns around this episode, which would be called Matrix Resurrections, if we are to believe the blunder of his costume designer. Keanu Reeves, Carrie-Anne Moss and Jada Pinkett Smith reprise their respective roles, alongside a handful of newcomers. Among them: Yahya Abdul-Mateen II (Watchmen), Jessica Henwick (Iron Fist), Priyanka Chopra (Quantico), Jonathan Groff (Mindhunter) and a few Sense8 alumni (Max Riemelt, Brian J. Smith, Toby Onwumere), the series by Lana Wachowski. Without forgetting, therefore, Neil Patrick Harris. It only remains to wait wisely for the first images, to finally dive back into the Matrix.
