Christopher Nolan to Direct Action Thriller ‘Dunkirk’, Coming in 2017!

Christopher Nolan has never directed a war film so it will be interesting to see what he brings to the table.

After mastering superhero movies with “The Dark Knight,” flying through time and space in “Interstellar,” and messing with everyone’s minds in “Inception” and “Memento,” director Christopher Nolan is taking on a different kind of movie: A historical war drama set in the early days of World War II.

“Dunkirk” is about the story of the historical evacuation of the northern French city during WWII.

The film titled “Dunkirk” is about the story of the historical evacuation of the northern French city during WWII. Set to premiere on July 21st, 2017, Dunkirk’s story centers on the 1940 ‘Operation Dynamo’ – the evacuation of more than 300,000 British, French and Belgian troops who were surrounded by the German army in the French city of Dunkirk.

Nolan will direct Dunkirk based on a screenplay he wrote. Casting has not been confirmed but it is rumored that Mark Rylance, Kenneth Branagh and Tom Hardy are in talks for the film. As usual, Hans Zimmer will be scoring the film.

Dunkirk will be released world wide on July 21st, 2017.

The film will be shot starting this May using a combination of IMAX 65mm IMAX Cameras for “maximum image quality and high-impact immersion”, continuing Nolan’s campaign to use conventional film instead of digital. The film will be released via Warner Bros.

This is a change of pace for a director who has been acclaimed for working in the Science Fiction realm and also working on genre pictures. Nolan has never directed a war film so it will be interesting to see what he brings to the table.
