Fresh off his lead role in Danny Boyle’s newest film, Yesterday, British actor Himesh Patel has joined the cast of Christopher Nolan’s Tenet. Patel will star alongside John David Washington, Elizabeth Debicki, Robert Pattinson, Clémence Poésy, Dimple Kapadia, Michael Caine, Aaron Taylor-Johnson and Kenneth Branagh.
Nolan will be writing, directing, and producing the film alongside his wife, Emma Thomas. Thomas Hayslip will be serving as executive producer. The film is described as “an action epic evolving from the world of international espionage.”
Patel most recently appeared in Danny Boyle’s Beatles dramedy Yesterday, which earned $72 million domestically and $130 million worldwide. He can be seen next in Amazon Studios’ adventure film The Aeronauts as well as HBO’s limited series Avenue 5 and the BBC’s miniseries The Luminaries.
Production for Tenet is currently underway.
