About 200 people, including star Keanu Reeves, skirted local COVID-19 restrictions and attended a party in Germany organized by the crew of the latest Matrix film, but producers insist they were filming a scene for the movie. German tabloid Bild spoke to guests at the party, hosted by producers and Matrix creators Lana and Lily Wachowski, who said they were told to come dressed as extras in order to mask the party as a film shoot for The Matrix 4. According to reports, the party happened at a film studio in Brandenburg, west of Berlin, where there is a limit of up to 50 people for parties, the Guardian says. Those parties must register in advance and attendants must wear masks.
