Fresh Details Emerge About Christopher Nolan’s Mysterious new Film Tenet

So we’ve got a title. Christopher Nolan’s mysterious new film is called Tenet, which should fire up the internet’s vast speculation engine on what the title could possibly mean. Fresh details have emerged revealing a talented cast, including many of Nolan’s long-standing collaborators, for what will be another epic event film from the mastermind behind the Dark Knight trilogy and so much more.

We knew that John David Washington, Elizabeth Debicki and Robert Pattinson were onboard, and now we learn that Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Clémence Poésy, Kenneth Branagh, Dimple Kapadia, and longtime Nolan collaborator Michael Caine are in the cast. Behind the camera, the talent includes many of Nolan’s favorite collaborators. These include cinematographer Hoyte van Hoytema, production designer Nathan Crowley, costume designer Jeffrey Kurland, and visual effects supervisor Andrew Jackson.  Nolan’s also tapped some up-and-coming talents, including composer Ludwig Göransson and editor Jennifer Lame. Producers Emma Thomas (also his wife) and Thomas Hayslip are helping steer the ship.

Tenet sounds like it will be as vast and epic as Nolan’s last three films—the brilliant World War II film Dunkirk (surprisingly, the first film that got Nolan and Best Director nomination), the cosmic Interstellar and the mind-trip that was Inception. The film is being described as a globe-trotting adventure that includes espionage, and as is Nolan’s wont, is being filmed using a mix of 70mm film and IMAX. The production is taking place across seven countries.

That’s about all we know for now, and details will likely be kept under wraps through production. We’ll share what we learn when we learn it.

Tenet is set to a July 17, 2020 release date.
