Christopher Nolan’s Next Project Described As ‘North By Northwest’ Meets ‘Inception’
If there’s a certified list of directors whose films are considered must-see every time they hit the theater (think Scorsese, Fincher, Gerwig, et al.), Nolan is definitely on it. His films are more than just feature length presentations. They are cinematic spectacles of the highest order.
According to a Production Weekly tweet, his next project has been described as a “romantic thriller, like ‘North by Northwest’ in tone meets ‘Inception,'” and he’s about to start shooting with a proposed release date of July 17, 2020.
Nolan recently presented an eight-minute video to the UK Cinema Association conference where the director, known for his passion for the big-screen experience, discussed his love of going to the cinema.
“My memories are not just of the films themselves and the amazing adventures unfolding on screen; they’re also of the sense of occasion, of being a young child entering an architectural space that’s so much bigger and grander than myself; the thrill of the curtains opening, moving to enlarge the screen for a widescreen presentation,” he said.
The filmmaker also discussed how he’s going to rely on theaters to help bring his next film to life. Nolan said he “will certainly be asking [exhibitors] to really help us, and asking you to be our partners in terms of putting on a show for the audience and giving them a reason to come out for the evening, and engage with the world of cinema which we all love so much.”
