During a recent interview with Variety, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II told about his experience on the set of Matrix 4, the next chapter in the film franchise created by the Wachowskis and which was directed by herself Lana Wachowski. We still know very little, if at all, about the film as regards its plot.
The actor admitted that he learned a lot from the only two people on set who were able to perfectly understand that world: Keanu Reeves e Lana Wachowski: "Nobody understands The Matrix except Keanu Reeves and Lana Wachowski. At that point you learn to find its meaning, and then you are tested. If no one says anything then you can trust that you are doing the right thing".
obviously Yahya Abdul-Mateen II did not take anything off balance that could relate to the plot of the film or what we could expect from this fourth chapter of the Matrix, which will arrive at the end of the year when 18 years have passed since the last Matrix Revolutions.
The last one to at least describe the atmosphere on the set was Neil Patrick Harris: "It didn't seem like a big production because it often shot on the fly, shot using natural light. Sometimes you sat for an hour waiting for the clouds to clear, and then you had to film quickly. You filmed several page long scenes in 30 minutes, and then you were done. One might think that a large production is made up of 100% storyboards, maniacally controlled shots, and so on. I think Lana has already experienced this situation three times, and I suspect he wants to do things his way now. It wasn't often that she felt like she was doing something huge, because she made it seem very intimate".
