Matrix 4 will also star the lovely Jada Pinkett Smith as she will return as Niobe.

Though we aren’t sure what Groff’s role will consist of quite yet, fans are hoping to see him as an agent as he would play the part well considering his character on the Netflix series, Mindhunter.

Aleksandar Hemon and David Mitchell co-wrote the script alongside Lana Wachowski, who is also returning to direct the film.

The Matrix, The Matrix Reloaded, and The Matrix Revolutions all collectively grossed over $1.6 billion at the box office globally and the fourth installment is expected to do just as well, if not better, than the others. All three of the Matrix films were written and directed by Wachowski and her sister, Lilly, and starred both Reeves and Moss.

Wachowski is committed to bringing a more diverse, inclusive cast to the film and she is doing an excellent job thus far as Groff will be the second openly gay actor to join Matrix 4, following Neil Patrick Harris.
