Iron Fist star Jessica Henwick, who played Colleen Wing in the canceled Marvel/Netflix series, is in talks to join The Matrix 4 in an undisclosed lead role.
Should she sign on the dotted line, she’ll join returning cast members Keanu Reeves and Carrie-Anne Moss, possibly Jada Pinkett Smith, and newcomers Yahya Abdul-Mateen II and Neil Patrick Harris.
Henwick’s role is a mystery, though this should come as pleasant news from fans of her character in Iron Fist and Defenders. She appeared in other popular franchises including Game of Thrones as Nymeria Sand, and also had a role in Star Wars: The Force Awakens as a pilot for the Resistance.
While details of the role are still being kept a secret, the report indicates that Henwick’s part will be substantial and that she’ll be “at the forefront” in the movie.
Officially confirmed to be in active development in August after years of rumors and speculation, the fourth Matrix is expected to begin principal photography in early 2020, though no release date has been announced by Warner Bros.
