Christopher Nolan, the pearl that brought us Tenet, in the Ufank developed his latest project with Universal Studios.
What are the details? Well, the project was traded in several studios before landing at Universal. The new movie jumps around Hollywood until it finally finds a home at Universal. Universal has given Nolan his next film green light, which deals with World War II scientist J. Robert Oppenheimer, who is considered one of the fathers of the atomic bomb. Sony, Paramount and Christopher Nolan’s longtime home, Warner Bros., will also speak to the filmmaker about the project. Almost all Nolan films since 2002 Insomnia were created by Warner Bros. published his film The Prestige (2006), was distributed by Disney, and Interstellar (2014), where Warners and Paramount shared international and civil rights, respectively.
Is the move to Universal a surprise? Well, the move comes after Christopher Nolan, a strong proponent of theatrical experience, spoke out against Warner (HBO / HBO Max) last year on all streaming platforms.
“Some of the biggest filmmakers in our industry and major movie stars went to bed the night before they thought they were working for the biggest movie studio and they woke up to find out they were working for the worst streaming service,” Nolan said. in a December statement to THR.
Christopher Nolan, is known for generating boxing billions with his The Dark Knight Trilogy (2005-12). He also earned his first Best Director Oscar nomination for his previous film of World War II, Dunkirk (2017), is one of the few directors who can secure large budgets for original ideas not based on IP. He was last seen in theaters Tenet, which Warners released exclusively in theaters a year ago in the COVID-19 era, where it domesticated just $ 58.4 million with a theatrical landscape reduced by the pandemic. Tenet proved to be a bell for other tent poles, as after the muted box office, other studios responded by printing films from 2020.
