For us cinephiles, Nolan is to us what God is to theists! Plenty of divergent elements are always amalgamated into Nolan’s work, some of which push him to the zenith of his career while others simply raise eyebrows in disbelief. He’s sometimes dinged for making films that are too vague on character development while also being praised for big-budget movies that people want to talk about, dissect, and rewatch time and again!
This maven director, who has helmed masterpieces like Dunkirk, Inception, Memento, Insomnia and so on, is coming to Mumbai to film his next movie titled Tenet! According to sources, Nolan was here in Mumbai for a recce session and he will be flying down in September for a couple of days to shoot this upcoming project.
A little birdie told us that there’ll be an epic chase sequence here in the city and if you’re willing to spot the Hollywood biggie, you gotta be around South Bombay, the Gateway of India, Taj Mahal hotel and Colaba Market. Tenet will also be shot in seven international locations including US, Estonia, Italy and London apart from India.
This spy-action thriller will also give screen space to our ‘Bobby’ woman, Dimple Kapadia who’ll be playing the role of an elderly lady with a strong narrative in the story! The other stars of this movie are Robert Pattinson, Michael Caine, Kenneth Branagh, John David Washington, Elizabeth Debicki, Aaron Taylor-Johnson and Clemence Poesy.
Dutch-Swedish cinematographer Hoyte van Hoytema, who worked with Nolan on Interstellar and Dunkirk, has been appointed as the Director of Photography for this one. The film's musical score is being composed by Ludwig Göransson, who recently won an Oscar for his work on Black Panther.
Tenet is set against the backdrop of an international world of espionage and it is eyeing a release some time in July next year.
