Aaliyah's 'Matrix' Role To Be Given To Nona Gaye

After a long re-audition process to fill the late Aaliyah’s shoes, “The Matrix: Reloaded” finally lives up to its name.

Nona Gaye, the daughter of Marvin Gaye who was recently seen acting alongside Will Smith in “Ali” and heard on last fall’s “What’s Going On” benefit single, has been chosen to play Zee in the two upcoming sequels to the 1999 sci-fi thriller “The Matrix,” according to Variety. The role was originally set to be portrayed by Aaliyah, who had filmed portions of “Reloaded” before she died last summer in a plane crash.

The character of Zee will be introduced in “Reloaded,” but, it is reported, will have a much bigger role in the third installment, “The Matrix: Revolutions.” Gaye will begin filming in Sydney, Australia, next week.

“Reloaded” is scheduled for a May 2003 release and “Revolutions” will follow in November 2003.
