Joe Pantoliano tried and failed to get Cypher back for The Matrix 4. The ongoing novel coronavirus pandemic has proved a mission too impossible for Mission Impossible. Plus, what’s to come on Roswell and Vagrant Queen, and even more new footage from Penny Dreadful: City of Angels. To me, my Spoilers!
The Matrix 4
In conversation with Cinema Blend, Joe Pantoliano stated he “lobbied” Lana Wachowski to reprise his role as Cypher in The Matrix 4 but received “no response.”
Yeah I’d be interested. I doubt they’re going to be bringing me back. I’ve lobbied for it, believe me. I’ve sent little notes to Lana and asked her, to no response.
Mission: Impossible 7 & 8
Due to production delays caused by covid-19, Mission: Impossible 7 is now scheduled for a November 2021 release date while M:I 8 will reach theatres the following year, November 2022. [/Film]
