‘The Matrix Resurrections,’ Why Filming Was a Mind-Bending Experience

He also talked about working with Lana Wachowski and how even the audition was an unusual experience.

With The Matrix Resurrections now playing in theaters and streaming on HBO Max, I recently got to speak with Yahya Abdul-Mateen II about making the highly anticipated sequel. During the interview, he talked about what surprised him about making a Matrix movie and working with director Lana Wachowski, when he realized he was truly part of something special, why filming was a mind-bending experience, why the audition process was an unusual experience, and more. In addition,with James Wan having wrapped on Aquaman 2 (Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom), I asked Abdul-Mateen about Black Manta’s role in the sequel, and his reaction reading the script. He told me:

“It’s another exciting adventure. I think in this one we get to see what it looks like to have Black Manta more in the driver’s seat. We get to see what it looks like for him to be a little bit more in charge. We get to see more of his own personality, some of the things that he struggled with, and some of his aspirations. And what it means for him to have a bit more muscle, a little bit more power in this film. I’m excited about introducing a more fleshed out, rounded personality to the world.”

Since Wachowski and Warner Bros. have done a great job at not revealing what happens in the film, I’ll just say The Matrix Resurrections continues the story of the first three films (if you don’t remember the sequels you might want to read or watch a recap) and brings back Keanu Reeves as Neo, Carrie-Anne Moss as Trinity, Jada Pinkett Smith as Niobe, Lambert Wilson as The Merovingian, and Daniel Bernhardt as Agent Johnson. Also joining The Matrix Resurrections are Jonathan Groff, Neil Patrick Harris, Andrew Caldwell, Priyanka Chopra, Jessica Henwick, Ellen Hollman, Eréndire Ibarra, Toby Onwumere, Christina Ricci, Max Riemelt, and Brian J. Smith. The Matrix Resurrections is co-written by Lana Wachowski, alongside David Mitchell and Aleksandar Hemon.
