TENET Director Christoper Nolan's Next Project Will Be A WWII-Set Drama About J. Robert Oppenheimer

Those of you hoping to see Christopher Nolan return to the sci-fi genre for his next project might be disappointed, as the Tenet director is set to helm a WWII-set drama about J. Robert Oppenheimer!

Christopher Nolan has almost become synonymous with epic, mind-bending sci-fi films such as Inception and Tenet, but for his next project, the acclaimed Dunkirk director is set to return to World War II for a drama about J. Robert Oppenheimer, one of the scientists credited with being the "father of the atomic bomb" for his role in the Manhattan Project.

What really sets this film apart from the majority of Nolan's work, though, is that it may not be developed at Warner Bros.!

The filmmaker has a long-standing relationship with the studio, but is currently said to be speaking with several other studios, including Sony, Universal, and Paramount, who are now in the process of reading the screenplay. The movie could still end up at WB, but Nolan was not happy about WarnerMedia's decision to put its entire 2021 slate on HBO Max (though Tenet did receive an exclusive theatrical run), and this seems to have soured their partnership to some extent.

Details on the project are few and far between (we don't know if it'll be a direct biopic, for example), but Deadline reports that frequent Nolan collaborator Cillian Murphy (Dunkirk, The Dark Knight trilogy) might be in line for an undisclosed role.

What do you guys make of this news? Are you disappointed that Nolan won't be staying in the sci-fi space for his next film? Let us know in the comments.
