I’m not too inclined to see this as a referendum on my childhood considering I was a fan of Neil Patrick Harris’s 90s teen series, Doogie Houser M.D., and hey, if you weren’t a fan of this series growing up…what even??
Anyway, word is out from Variety that ya boy NPH is gonna star in the upcoming fourth installment in The Matrix saga which already has returning cast members Keanu Reeves and Carrie-Anne Moss, and the newly added Yahya Abdul-Mateen II from Aquaman.
Aleksandar Hemon and David Mitchell co-wrote the script with Lana Wachowski who will produce with Grant Hill. Wachowski, who previously co-helmed the blockbuster original trilogy with Lilly (previously named Andy), will return to direct in a solo capacity.
As Variety’s Justin Kroll reported earlier, production is to start in February 2020. Harris marks his first studio tentpole following credits on films like Downsizing, Gone Girl and A Series of Unfortunate Events.
