Marcus Chong, who played Tank, pilot of Morpheus' hovership the Nebuchadnezzar in the 1999 sci-fi blockbuster, filed a lawsuit at Los Angeles Superior Court on Friday against Warner Bros and parent company AOL Time Warner.
It said Warner breached a 1998 verbal agreement, and a contract signed in 2000, to revive the character for the forthcoming Matrix Reloaded and third movie Matrix Revolutions, which hits cinemas in November. See full news at the Guardian.
