Writer/director Christopher Nolan’s next film now officially has a title – Tenet.
Warner Brothers made the announcement today while releasing the news that the film has just started production.
As is usual with Nolan productions, very little is known about the project but the Warners press release is calling it an action-epic revolving around the international world of espionage. To that end, filming will take place across seven countries over the next several months. As he has on last few projects, Nolan will be shooting with a mix of 70mm and IMAX cameras.
The film will be headlined by John David Washington, Robert Pattinson and Elizabeth Debicki, with Nolan’s good luck charm Michael Caine, Kenneth Branagh, Dimple Kapadia, Aaron Taylot-Johnson and Clemence Posey rounding out the cast.
It has been nearly two years since the release of Nolan’s last film, the World War Two drama Dunkirk. That film went on to received eight Academy Award nominations including Best Picture and would ultimately win three – Film Editing, Sound Editing and Sound mixing. So needless to say, expectations for Tenet are running fairly high.
Tenet has a release date of July 17, 2020.
