AceShowbiz - Warner Bros. has shared a little bit of more details about Christopher Nolan's next movie. Much like his previous films, the upcoming project has been shrouded in secrecy, but at least now fans know that it is called "Tenet".
The film has just added Aaron Taylor-Johnson (a.k.a. Aaron Johnson), Kenneth Branagh, Michael Caine and Clemence Poesy to the cast, joining the likes of John David Washington, Robert Pattinson and Elizabeth Debicki who were earlier reported to star in the movie. Their roles are currently unknown, but Washington is taking the lead role.
"Tenet" is described as an action epic evolving from the world of international espionage. Nolan wrote the original screenplay, in addition to serving behind the lens. There was a speculation that the upcoming film could be a sequel of sorts to Nolan's 2010 sci-fi hit "Inception", but it's not confirmed.
Nolan and his wife Emma Thomas are producing, with Thomas Hayslip on board as executive producer. The also team includes "Dunkirk" director of photography Hoyte van Hoytema, who will be shooting in a mix of Imax and 70mm, and editor Jennifer Lame, production designer Nathan Crowley, costume designer Jeffrey Kurland and VFX supervisor Andrew Jackson. Ludwig Goransson, who won an Oscar for the score of "Black Panther", has been tapped to score the upcoming movie.
Production has begun on the movie, with the filming taking place in seven countries. The movie is scheduled to arrive on July 17, 2020.
"Tenet" will be the follow-up to Nolan's 2017 movie "Dunkirk" about Dunkirk evacuation of World War II. The movie received critical acclaims and landed a number of nominations and awards, including eight nominations at the 90th Academy Awards. It was nominated for Best Picture and Best Director (Nolan's first Oscar nomination for directing), though it ended up losing in those two categories. It, however, bagged three Oscars for Best Sound Editing, Best Sound Mixing and Best Film Editing.
