Christopher Nolan’s next big project is now titled “Tenet,” and the studio confirmed the title, release date, and cast on Wednesday afternoon. Filming on “Tenet” began this week, and the drama is scheduled to hit theaters on July 17, 2020. The drama stars John David Washington, Robert Pattinson, Elizabeth Debicki, Dimple Kapadia, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, and Clémence Poésy. The film also features Michael Caine and Kenneth Branagh.

Directed by Christopher Nolan, filming is stretched across seven countries, and the action epic involves the world of international espionage.

Nolan is directing from his original screenplay, once again utilizing a mixture of IMAX and 70mm film. Nolan and Emma Thomas are producing “Tenet” for the studio, with Thomas Hayslip serving as executive producer on the project.

Nolan’s behind-the-scenes creative team includes director of photography Hoyte van Hoytema, production designer Nathan Crowley, editor Jennifer Lame, costume designer Jeffrey Kurland, and visual effects supervisor Andrew Jackson. Ludwig Göransson is composing the score.

Warner Bros. Pictures is distributing “Tenet” worldwide and has slated the film for a July 17, 2020 release.

The news comes just days after it was reported that Robert Pattinson is the leading pick for Matt Reeves’ “The Batman” movie. Christopher Nolan of course famously brought Batman back into the pop culture mainstream with “Batman Begins” in 2005, “The Dark Knight” in 2008, and “The Dark Knight Rises” in 2012. That version of the iconic character was played by Christian Bale and featured MichaeACl Caine, Gary Oldman, Morgan Freeman, and Cillian Murphy.

“The Batman,” another Warner Bros. Pictures project, has not made any official casting announcements at this time. So fans will have to wait a little longer to see who takes the mantle of Batman this time around.
