Christopher Nolan’s next film has found its lead.
Nolan recently finished the script for the movie and Warner Bros. quickly dated the feature for July 18, 2020 — a slot the studio has historically reserved for the director, most recently with Dunkirk.
One insider noted that the film will not be a romantic thriller has previously rumored. Instead, it will be a massive, innovative, action blockbuster, which will again be shown in IMAX.
The story, as well as Washington’s role, is being kept a secret for now. Rumor has it that auditions for the role were also kept in the dark with actors not even knowing the role they were gunning for.
Washington has made quite the name for himself in Hollywood. Following a breakout role in Ballers, he wowed the world with a tour-de-force performance in BlacKkKlansman, which won the Academy Award for Best Adapted Screenplay. Washington also had strong performances inThe Old Man & the Gun and Monsters and Men.
