    Sorry,

    I really haven't kept up with these films however much I liked the first one. If anyone knows what happened with Aaliyah's participation in Matrix 2, I would appreciate it. I went to Internet Movie Database to discover that she is no longer listed in the credits, but I was surprised to see that Monica Belucci was.

    I think Belucci is wonderful, but I would have hoped that they would have also kept Aaliyah. Call me sentimental.

    Thanks for the hassle!

    Idiot=Me for not keeping up on this. :D

    From what I can remember, they either hadn't shot her scenes yet, or hadn't completed all of her scenes (for both films) when she died. That made it impossible to keep her in the movies.

    Aaliyah was supposed to have a minor (but significant) role in the Matrix sequels, but like another post mentioned, she passed away before any scenes were shot. Monica Bellucci is playing the role originally envisioned for her: the shady temptress Persephone.

    I'm afraid you are all wrong. Aliyah's part was replaced by
    Nona Gaye - Marvin Gaye's daughter. :). Monical Bellucci plays
    a different part.

    btw Nona's character is named Zee and 'Zee' is going to be
    introduced in the first film (reloaded) and will have a larger
    role in the 3rd film (revolutions). pic:

    I'm not sure if this pic of nona was taken while filming Reloaded.

    Monica Bellucci does have a minor role,
    compared to Nona Gaye's. Just thought I'd add that.

    Here's a link to a supposedly real draft of Reloaded...

    If you ever visit Script-o-rama.com, you'll see links to different movie scripts scattered across the internet. Here's one that may or may not be real, although I think it's a pretty interesting read.

    I don't remember seeing anyone in this film like Monica Bellucci's character. But then again, who knows? This could all be just a bunch of poop.

    WARNING:
    Read it at your own peril! If there are real spoilers to the Reloaded film and you don't want to know, don't read it. Otherwise, go right ahead! I'd love to hear what other people think.
