Warner Bros. has been hard at work in filling out their cast for the fourth installment of the Matrix franchise this week and they don’t appear to be slowing down. According to Deadline, Jessica Henwick, best known for her roles in HBO’s Game of Thrones and Marvel’s Iron Fist, is the latest star to be in negotiations to join Matrix 4.
It is unclear at this time what role Henwick will play in Matrix 4, but the 27-year-old actress had to go through an audition process for a role and reportedly left with strong impressions. Reports say director Lana Wachowski is looking to cast a female character that closely resembles Neo, played by John Wick star Keanu Reeves.
Henwick would be joining Aquaman star Yahya Abdul-Mateen II and Neil Patrick Harris as fellow newcomers to the franchise. Carrie Ann-Moss and Jada Pinkett Smith will return to reprise their roles for a fourth go-around alongside Reeves. Wachowski will be in the director’s chair. She will also co-write the screenplay with Aleksandar Hemon and David Mitchell. Grant Hill will return to produce the film.
