The coronavirus has spread so rapidly and intensely that people from all the sectors are taking leave mostly, and at times of emergency, they are just doing work from home. This is no different for film and series industry. Many movies have shutdown their works and reached home. One such film in that list is Matrix 4.

After long 17 years, Matrix is coming up with its fourth instalment for all the fans out there. Shooting has been in full swing in the last couple of months as the fans on the shooting spots captured many videos and pictures.
The Village Roadshow co-production has said that there are shooting in Berlin and next they are scheduled to be shot in Germany after completing there shooting in San Fransico. Wachowski is joining hands with Grant Hill, who is the executive producer of Matrix Reloaded and Matrix Revolutions.
The trilogy has collected 1.6 billion dollars at the box office. As per scheduled plan shooting has been completed in San Francisco. So now it’s their turn to move next to Berlin to presume the next segment of the shooting.

The team has taken off to Berlin to presume the shooting. They have not yet started the shooting but got everything set to start it. Then to spoil the plans of all corona has come out of the box.
This made them shut down the shooting to back to their homes concerning their safety as the main priority. So the cast Keanu Reeves, Carrie-Anne Moss, Jada Pinkett Smith, Priyanka Chopra, Brian J. Smith, Erendira Ibarra, Andrew Caldwell, Jessica Henwick, Ibarra, Neil Patrick Harris, Toby Onwumere and Yahya Abdul-Mateen II.

They will presume the shooting once the situation outside is calmed down. Germany has announced to close their borders as they have more than 5000 confirmed cases as of then.
