Hugo Weaving Reveals Why He's Not Part of 'The Matrix 4'

Another character you won’t be seeing in The Matrix 4 is Hugo Weaving, aka Agent Smith.

The 60-year-old actor talked with Collider and revealed that there were plans to have him back, but things didn’t work out.

“Lana [Wachowski] was very keen for me to be a part of [The Matrix 4]. I really wanted to because I’m very, very fond of all of them,” Hugo explained. “I had some initial reticence about the idea of going back to revisit The Matrix, after having already done three films, but then I read the script and got an offer to my agent.”

He added that he “immediately responded yes to that, and then we went into negotiation.”

However, that’s when things got a little messy with scheduling dates.

“I was doing a play, at the time, but we were working out dates and things so that I could do both. And then, Lana decided that she didn’t wanna change her dates, so I couldn’t do it,” Hugo added. “In a nutshell, that’s what happened.”

This other original Matrix star won’t be in the fourth movie either…
