Nolan has cemented a legacy that isn’t even twenty years old and it will only keep growing as time goes on. Some of the best directors dove into creating war films to help cement their legacies as diverse and talented directors. You think of Spielberg, Kubrick, Bigelow, Ridley Scott, and so on and they all have a powerful war drama on their resumes, but could Nolan be the next in line for this challenge?
The films title is reportedly titled “Dunkirk” and could star Mark Rylance, Kenneth Branagh, and Tom Hardy.
Variety reported that Nolan is looking for a lead teenage boy for the starring role while nailing down the adult supporting roles. Not much is known about who he could be eyeing for the role, but it is rumored he could be searching for an unknown.
Nolan will shoot the film in IMAX 65mm AND 65mm wide to bring the large scale style to his newly reported war epic. The film is slated to come out in the summer of 2017.
