Details on Abdul-Mateen’s character have not been released. The actor is best known for starring in Aquaman, The Get Down, and Jordan Peele’s Us. His upcoming projects include HBO’s series adaptation Watchmen, Candyman, All Day and a Night, and The Trial of the Chicago 7.

Production on the film is scheduled to begin in early 2020, Wachowski co-wrote the script with Aleksander Hemon and David Mitchell and will direct the film as well.

Plot details on the film also haven’t been revealed, and given the ending of 2003’s The Matrix Revolutions, it’s not a clear cut answer.

Earlier this year we asked our readers if they were interested in more movies in the series, with 69% of those voting saying “Yes!” In a secondary poll, 58% said they wanted to see a continuation of the series. Looks like they’ll be getting what they wanted!
