There aren’t many directors who can send waves through the online film community by simply announcing their next project, but Christopher Nolan recently did just that.
Despite a cast, crew, synopsis, and even a title being absent from the announcement, the director’s solid track record makes it easy to be excited for whatever he does next. After Memento, The Prestige, The Dark Knight, Inception, and Dunkirk, Nolan has become one of the most reliable filmmakers in the business, so it’s only natural that his forthcoming effort will be subject to a lot of hype over the coming months.
The movie is over a year away so details are still relatively thin on the ground at the moment, but there are several facts we know for now, with the layers gradually being peeled back as it readies production.
Nolan is a very secretive filmmaker so it's hard to predict exactly what he'll do next, but looking at everything that's been revealed in the few months since his latest film was announced, and there are some key details that help us piece together his 2020 movie.
