Matt Damon, Emily Blunt and Robert Downey Jr. in the cast of Christopher Nolan’s next film?

Mon 08 November 2021

We no longer present it, Christopher Nolan, 51, is considered one of the greatest directors of the decade, notably for his Batman trilogy “The Dark Knight“but also for these films on temporality like Memento Where Interstellar. Each of his projects is commented on, scrutinized and dissected in the smallest details, with a good number of theories which flourish on the networks.. Who has not bugged in front of the top at the end of’Inception ? Who has not taken 2 hours to understand the principle of Tenet his last film? Released this summer, it featured time-inversion stories that had pretty much divided critics.. What is certain is that we like or don’t like Nolan’s cinema, but these films are always big events..

And while Tenet was released not even a year ago, Christopher Nolan has already announced his next feature film, which will be on Robert Oppenheimer aka the creator of the atomic bomb. What changes from these usual projects. And the director has already confirmed a name to the cast: Cillian Murphy alias Thomas Shelby des Peaky Blinders. The Irish actor will collaborate with Nolan for the sixth time, after Batman Begins Where Dunkerque, but it will be his first time headlining with the role of Robert Oppenheimer.

And if the name of Cillian Murphy is already dreaming, according to Deadline, he would be joined by actors in high demand in Hollywood starting with Robert Downey Jr. who would be for the first time in the casting of a film by Christopher Nolan, just like the actress Emily Blunt. And by their side we would also find Matt Damon, which we had already seen in Interstellar. While these names have yet to be confirmed by official sources, it’s rare for Deadline to have the wrong information, especially since their names have been added to the cast on the IMDB site....

The film will be the adaptation of the book American Prometheus : The Triumph and Tragedy of J. Robert Oppenheimer, biography on Oppenheimer, who was awarded the Pulitzer Prize in 2006. A historical book which therefore retraces the history of the creation of the atomic bomb, responsible for the destruction of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, with its leading protagonists.

For this film, Christopher Nolan still has a huge budget of $ 100 million. It must be said that this is his first collaboration with Universal Studios so they lined up the money for his arrival.. Indeed, Nolan had ended his historic collaboration with Warner last December when he lambasted their decision to release their post films.–covid in theaters and in parallel in SVOD. A sacrilege for the director who has always encouraged the public to go see films on the big screen. Moreover, he even dealt in this direction with Universal, so that his film is exploited in the cinema for 100 days against 45 in normal times.. In any case we still have a little time since it is scheduled for 2023.
