Things We Saw Today: Christina Ricci Joins the Cast of The Matrix 4
Plus Venom, Luca, and more!
Goth girl icon and forever Wednesday Addams Christina Ricci is joining the cast of The Matrix 4. Ricci’s role is being kept tightly under wraps for now, as she joins Keanu Reeves, Carrie-Anne Moss, Jada Pinkett Smith, Jessica Henwick, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Priyanka Chopra Jonas, Jonathan Groff and Neil Patrick Harris in the long awaited fourth chapter of the Matrix franchise.
This role isn’t Ricci’s first time working with the Wachowskis. She previously starred in 2008’s Speed Racer, which was a critical and commercial flop. But in the years since, the film has developed a cult following for its colorful design and inventive visual effects.
