There is one star noticeably absent from filming “The Matrix 4” — Laurence Fishburne.

Fishburne, who played Morpheus in the first three films, has not been on set as production on the movie in Berlin, Germany, picked up. In a new interview, he addressed why he isn’t there.

“I have not been invited,” he told New York Magazine via The Wrap”.

He added, “Maybe that will make me write another play. I wish them well. I hope it’s great.”

It does come as a surprise as Keanu Reeves, Carrie-Anne Moss, Jada Pinkett Smith, and Lambert Wilson are all reprising their characters.
