Christopher Nolan's next film to be biopic of Atomic Bomb scientist J. Robert Oppenheimer
Christopher Nolan's next film is set to be a biopic about the life of Atomic Bomb scientist J. Robert Oppenheimer.
According to Deadline, Nolan's next film is in the early stages, but the script is finalised and the director and his producing partner Emma Thomas are in talks about the next steps for the film, which will chart Oppenheimer's role in the development of the atom bomb during World War II.
The report also details that for the first time since 2000's Memento, Nolan is open to the possibility of working with a studio besides Warner Brothers and is in discussions with representatives from other studios.
Early reports have linked Cillian Murphy with a key role in the movie, but whether this is playing Oppenheimer or not is unclear.
Murphy and Nolan have collaborated together a number of times, the actor played a key role in Dunkirk and portrayed Dr. Jonathan Crane in Nolan's Dark Knight trilogy.
Nolan's last movie, Tenet, was released in the summer of 2020.
