‘The Matrix 4’: ‘Spartacus’ Actress Ellen Hollman Joins Sequel!!

The next movie The Matrix 4 has just added a new version to its already stacked cast: Ellen Hallman. Her role in the film is a mystery, as no details have been published about who she is playing. The first Matrix movie was released in 1999 with critical and financial acclaim. The film follows Keanu Reeves as Neo, a man who knows that the world he knows is not real and that he and most of the human population live in a computer simulation called Matrix. And learns that he is “The One”, the man who frees humanity from the control of the machines he created.

The film is now considered a classic, as it redefined the genre of science fiction and action for each with its unique history, stylized fighting scenes and the use of “bullet time.”  The film generated two sequels, The Matrix Reloaded and The Matrix Revolution and is now a $ 1 billion franchise.

The news of a new Matrix sequel has come with an avalanche of casting ads.  According to The Wrap, Ellen Hallman has been cast for an unknown role in The Matrix 4. Hallman is best known as Saxa in Starz’s historical drama, Spartacus. She joins several other actors, who are new to the franchise, including Neil Patrick Harris, Priyanka Chopra Jonas, Jessica Henwick of Iron Fist and Yahya Abdul-Matin II of Aquaman.

In addition to her work at Spartacus, Ellen Hallman also played the role of Ziffer in the cult success of AMC In the Bandlands.

She has several other credits, including several roles as recurring characters in NCIS: New Orleans and 9-1-1.  Hallman is a trained GU-Jitsu martial artist, which makes it a great fit in a franchise that focuses too much on fighting choreography.

Details about the sequence of the Matrix are rare.  The film still has no title, and despite the addition of several new actors, no new characters have appeared.  The plot is also concluded, assuming the movie is before or after the original trilogy.  Some of the things confirmed for The Matrix 4 are.

The returning franchise stars are Keanu Reeves, Carrie-Ann Moss, and Jada Pinkett-Smith. Lana Wachowski, one of the directors of the original trilogy, will also return to the film. Unfortunately, Hugo Weaving, who played the antagonist Agent Smith in the original trilogy, will not return. Despite the lack of public information about Matrix 4, fans can expect at least one interesting and dynamic cast.
