Toby Onwumere will reunite with Lana Wachowski for “The Matrix 4” which aims to begin shooting early next year. Specifics of his role in the film are under wraps.
Onwumere joins returnees Keanu Reeves, Carrie-Anne Moss, and Jada Pinkett Smith as well as new to the franchise Jessica Henwick, Neil Patrick Harris, Jonathan Groff and Yahya Abdul-Mateen II.
Aleksandar Hemon and David Mitchell are writing the script and Wachowski is directing and will also produce with Grant Hill.
Onwumere took over the role of Capheus in the second season of Netflix’s “Sense8” and also recurred in the fifth season of “Empire” as the love interest and eventual husband of Jamal Lyon (Jussie Smollett).
