'Candyman' star Yahya Abdul-Mateen II is one of the fresh faces joining the fourth installment of the world-famous franchise 'The Matrix'. He revealed in a new interview that he was "starstruck" by his costar Keanu Reeves. Emmy winner Abdul-Mateen II’s role in the motion picture is yet to be revealed.

Reeves is reprising his iconic role of Neo in “The Matrix 4,” while original star Carrie-Anne Moss is also back as Trinity. Both characters appeared to die at the end of “The Matrix Revolutions,” so their resurrections for “The Matrix 4” will most likely drive the plot. No specifics on the storyline have been revealed.

Filming took place last summer during the coronavirus pandemic. Abdul-Matteen told the that Reeves' presence on set blew him away. "I remember Keanu and his first line. I looked up, and there was Keanu, and I said, 'Oh shit, I'm really in 'The Matrix,'" Yahya said. He added, "It was just Keanu in that voice."

The "Watchmen" star also praised director Lana Wachowski and her use of technology in the film. "The technology that Lana incorporated and the filmmaking, camera rigs that I've never seen before. It's so ambitious," he told in the interview. Abdul-Matteen further added, "It was really interesting to be making 'The Matrix 4' at a time when the world was so warped and when reality was so distorted. It could creep in a little bit if you let it."

Warner Bros. originally had “The Matrix 4” on the release calendar for May 21, 2021 before the pandemic forced the studio to bump the sequel at first to April 1, 2022. The still-untitled fourth "Matrix" movie is now pushed back and set to premiere in December 2021.
