Tom Hardy, Kenneth Branagh To Star in Christopher Nolan's WWII Film

December 29, 2015


As we learned yesterday, Christopher Nolan's next film won't have any Batmen nor inceptings. The director's Interstellar follow-up will reportedly be about the miraculous WWII evacuation of trapped Allied troops at Dunkirk, and now Variety has some more details on the project. Aptly enough, it will be titled Dunkirk, and Warner Bros. has already scheduled it for a July 21, 2017 release. It will shoot this summer on a mix of 65mm and 65mm IMAX stock. The ensemble cast will have unknowns in the lead roles, but Kenneth Branagh, stage-turned-suddenly-huge-film-star Mark Rylance, and frequent Nolan collaborator Tom Hardy will also have parts. So hopefully someone will have made the requisite "Bane Churchill does the 'We Shall Fight on the Beaches' speech" video before the new year.
