Hugo Weaving Was Considered to Return as Agent Smith in The Matrix Resurrections

December 30, 2021

The Matrix Resurrections was always going to struggle to bring back all of the cast members they wanted, due to the huge time gap since the original trilogy came to a conclusion in 2003. While Keanu Reeves, Carrie-Anne Moss and Jada Pinkett Smith have all reprised their roles, others such as Laurence Fishburne and Hugo Weaving were recast with Yahya Abdul-Mateen II and Jonathan Groff, respectively. While Fishburne’s Morpheus recasting was always the plan, it seems that there was a point when Hugo Weaving was almost brought back as Agent Smith.
