More and more details are finally starting to emerge about Christopher Nolan’s secretive next film, including what it’s actually going to be called. Warner Bros announced yesterday that Nolan’s first movie since 2017’s Dunkirk is officially titled Tenet, and that the film is:
“An action epic following the world of international espionage”.
It seems that Nolan hasn’t fully scratched that 007 itch yet. We’ve also learnt that Sir Kenneth Branagh, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Clémence Poésy, Dimple Kapadia and – of course – Michael Caine are joining John David Washington, Robert Pattinson, Elizabeth Debicki in the star-studded line-up. As usual, Nolan also wrote the script and is producing, while shooting has already began.
One revelation that interested me especially is that Black Panther‘s Ludwig Göransson will be composing the score. Nolan has used Hans Zimmer since Batman Begins and, while I wasn’t always too fond of what Zimmer came up with, there’s no doubt that the pairing was one of the most significant director/composer collaborations in recent years. I doubt that the two have fallen out, I reckon it’s either because Zimmer has too much on his plate or that Nolan has simply picked what he thinks is the right composer for this particular job.
Anyway, it’ll be some time before we find out for ourselves, the release date not till July 17, 2020.
