In addition, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Jessica Henwick, Christina Ricci, Neil Patrick Harris and Jonathan Groff are cast in unknown roles. Shooting started in February 2020 before the pandemic stopped it. Principal photography wrapped in November later that year.
Chopra had talked about her character in an interaction with Variety. She said: “If there’s one thing Matrix fans know about the beloved franchise, it’s to expect the unexpected.” And it looks like Priyanka Chopra’s unnamed character will be full of it when she makes her debut in The Matrix 4.
