Jessica Henwick, who played the X-wing pilot Jess Pava in Star Wars: The Force Awakens is in talks to star in the fourth Matrix movie.

We hear that Marvel Iron Fist actress Jessica Henwick is in talks for a lead role in Warner Bros./Village Roadshow’s Matrix 4, a part which is currently under wraps.

Sources tell us that Henwick performed quite strongly during the audition process. There’s been buzz around town that Matrix 4 director and co-scribe Lana Wachowski is looking to have a female-like Neo character at the forefront of the new film.

Henwick joins Matrix franchise actors Keanu Reeves and Carrie-Anne Moss. It’s been speculated that Yahya Abdul-Mateen II will play a young Morpheus. Yesterday, Neil Patrick Harris joined the cast, while Deadline reported that Jada Pinkett Smith is in negotiations to reprise her role as hovercraft pilot-rebel-martial arts specialist Niobe.
