Keanu Reeves Shares Update on 'Matrix 4' Production – Details of Their Set Amid the COVID-19 Pandemic

The "Matrix" Trilogy was, and still is, one of the most iconic franchises in TV history. Now, the producers are gearing up to add an unprecedented fourth installment to the series, much to fans' thrill.

Recently, Keanu Reeves, the star of the trilogy, announced to fans that the fourth "Matrix" movie had resumed filming in Berlin. According to a video from the Associated Press, Reeves explained that the crew had begun work once again. 

Reeves particularly praised the production team and the procedures that they had taken thus far. With the novel coronavirus pandemic still going strong, they have managed to mitigate risks to a considerable level, he explained.

"Matrix 4" wasn't the only movie to halt productions due to the pandemic. With lockdowns and travel restrictions, it has been impossible to shuttle between Berlin and San Francisco — the two primary locations. 

However, Reeves explained that things were still able to move fine nonetheless. The actor mentioned that show business people are usually the best at finding the best situations to move forward with projects. In part, he said

"There's really thoughtful, effective protocols in place, and the rhythm of filmmaking has been not really impacted or interrupted. I think everyone loves the project."

The star actor also praised the proactive approach that the producers have taken to ensure that the movie production continues.

The "Matrix" franchise is a sci-fi phenomenon. The movies also launched Reeves into the realm of superstardom, with millions of adoring fans worldwide. 

He gave as much as $75 million of his money to other cast and crew members.

The actor also got handsome compensation from the movies. According to reports, his initial contract saw him pocket $10 million to appear in the film. However, he also negotiated terms that saw him take a part of its profits. 

"Matrix 1" made about $463 million worldwide. Thus, Reeves got an additional $25million. With the second and third sequels, the franchise made over $1 billion worldwide. So, Reeves got paid about $250 million alone.

Once talk of the fourth installment became public, Reeves wasted no time in signing up. Per reports, he had read the script and loved it. So, it was a no-brainer for him to sign up.
