Moss Begins Training For Matrix 2
Carrie-Anne Moss, who will reprise the role of Trinity in the upcoming The Matrix 2 and 3, told SCI FI Wire that she will join the rest of the cast this week to start training for the sequels to 1999's hit SF movie The Matrix. "I'm training now, and we'll start training with everybody in the middle of [this] week, and we'll train for six months, and then we'll shoot," Moss said in an interview. The months of training will include "kung fu and whatever other action things they need us to learn, and training to get in shape, get some muscles, and get my Trinity body back," she said.
As for the closely guarded story line of the two sequels, Moss said, "I can't tell you anything about them, but I'll tell you they're going to be really special." Asked about rumors that her character will be kidnapped and have to be rescued by Neo (Keanu Reeves), Moss remained coy. "Oh really?" she said. "I don't remember reading that. I'll have to go back and read it again. [It's a] rumor!"
Moss said Matrix 2 will begin shooting in March in Australia and San Francisco. As for the effect of impending writers' and actors' strikes in the spring of 2001, Moss said, "I'm kind of trusting that the production will take care of all of that stuff. Yeah, it's a bit of a worry. It's a worry for everybody. But it's also an important thing that has to be figured out."
