Christopher Nolan is one of those directors that we trust no matter what. According to Variety, the Dunkirk director has started shooting his new film, which is official titled Tenet, meaning a principle or belief which could be one of the main principles of a religion or philosophy.
It’s a spy thriller action movie, which will takes place in seven different countries all around the world. The plot is about a globe-trotting adventure that dabbles in international espionage with shades of the mind-bending Inception but also somehow involves the time dilemma a la Interstellar.
Nolan has teamed up with his fetish cinematographer, Hoyte van Hoytema and for the first time, composer Ludwig Göransson, who won an Oscar for ‘Best Original Score’ thanks to his work in the movie Black Panther.
The only information about the film that we knew before now, was that John David Washington, Robert Pattinson, and Elizabeth Debicki are set to star in the movie.
Pattinson recently teased about the movie on USA Today, “I got locked in a room to read the script – I don’t have it myself”.
He also praised the Interstellar director, saying, “I’ve been a little wary of doing big movies for years and years, but there’s just something about Chris Nolan’s stuff. He seems like the only director now who can do what is essentially a very personal, independent movie that has a huge scale. I read the script, and it’s unreal”.
Besides the first cast news, Variety has reported that Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Clémence Poésy, Michael Caine, Kenneth Branagh and Dimple Kapadia, seen in the 1973 Bollywood movie Bobby are also part of the official cast.
Tenet will be released in cinemas worldwide on July 17, 2020.
