It looks like fans will not see Laurence Fishburne‘s infamous character Morpheus in the upcoming addition to ‘The Matrix’ franchise.
In an interview with New York Magazine, Fishburne says that he was not invited to participate in the film.
“I have not been invited. Maybe that will make me write another play. I wish them well. I hope it’s great.”
The year-old acknowledged that Morpheus, which he has portrayed in every movie in the series since its start in 1999, will be one of his most memorable roles.
“It is probably the role that I’ll be best remembered for, which is great; it’s not the only thing I’ll be remembered for, which is better.”
Keanu Reeves has been confirmed to portray his character Neo, and it is reported that Jada Pinkett Smith is in negotiations to return as well.
TELL US: Fair or Foul? How do you have ‘The Matrix’ without Laurence Fishburne?
