Throughout 2020, several film and TV productions suffered stoppages due to the Coronavirus pandemic.
The health crisis generated delays and even cancellations of long-awaited titles, and the same almost happened with ‘Matrix Resurrections‘.
The information was revealed by Jessica Henwick (‘Iron Fist’) during an interview with the Collider.
In the plot, the star will be one of Morpheu’s new allied warriors (Yahya Abdul-Mateen II) against the domination of artificial intelligence over the human race.
Asked about the challenges of recording during the pandemic, the actress said that the director Lana Wachowski considered throwing in the towel during production.
“When the recordings were interrupted by COVID-19, I was training my choreographies and speaking at home for about three months, although we didn’t know if we were going to record again so soon. When these three passed, Lana had a meeting and said, ‘Well, guys… Maybe that’s it. Maybe we won’t go back to recording. The new ‘Matrix‘It will stay in the memory like an incomplete film and no one will be able to watch it, the situation is unbearable’.”
“She was exhausted, but we all insisted that she not give up. She simply flirted with the idea of leaving everything in the way. I don’t even know if I should be saying this, but that’s what happened.”
Despite fan expectations, there was so much uncertainty surrounding what would happen to the movie industry that no one can blame Wachowski for thinking about this possibility, right?[display-posts orderby="rand"]
