Collider Exclusive: Robert Pattinson is slated to star in Christopher Nolan’s next blockbuster alongside John David Washington!
Variety is reporting that Nolan recently finished the script for the currently untitled film and Warner Bros. quickly dated it for July 17, 2020 — a slot the studio often reserves for the director, most recently with Dunkirk. Not only was that film a massive success at the box office, bringing in $526 million worldwide, but it also earned Nolan an Oscar nomination for Best Director, his first in the category.
The project has become one of the more highly coveted ones in Hollywood, even though most of the industry has been kept in the dark about everything from casting to plot details. One insider described the pic as a massive action blockbuster, which will again be shown in Imax. Variety described the film as “a massive, innovative action blockbuster” that will see Pattinson and Washington (BlacKkKlansman) in the two leading roles.
Pattinson has a busy 2019 ahead of him with Robert Eggers’ The Lighthouse, The King at Netflix, and Waiting for the Barbarians all expected to bow this year. He can next be seen in Claire Denis’ High Life.
