First details have been revealed for Christopher Nolan’s highly anticipated next!
Every single Nolan film since 2002’s Insomnia has been released by Warner Bros., but this may break with tradition as he is reportedly selling it at several major studios.
Deadline reports that “a number of major studios across the city are reading scripts and speaking with Nolan and his reps.”
The film will be set in World War II and will focus on “J. Robert Oppenheimer’s role in the development of the atom bomb” during the war.
Nolan’s decision to walk away from Warner Bros. may be due to the studio’s decision to release its 2021 film slate on HBO Max on the same day they hit theaters.
It is being reported that Cillian Murphy “might be involved” with the film. He has already worked with Nolan in five films: Batman Begins, The Dark Knight, The Dark Knight Rises, Inception and Dunkirk.
Deadline says “there will clearly be many big star parts” in the movie.
