Another actor has joined the cast of Christopher Nolan’s secret action film. According to Variety, British actress Elizabeth Debicki has landed the female lead in the untitled picture opposite recently announced cast members John David Washington (BlacKkKlansman) and Robert Pattinson (recently revealed by Collider).
Elizabeth Debicki and Robert Pattinson are on board to co-star with John David Washington in Christopher Nolan’s next movie, Variety has learned.
Debicki is likely best known for her work on Steve McQueen’s Widows, Guy Ritchie’s The Man From U.N.C.L.E., and James Gunn’s The Guardians of The Galaxy Vol.2. More recently taking a part in the HBO series Lovecraft Country and had a supporting role in Bad Robot’s science fiction film Cloverfield Paradox that debuted on Netflix.
The main character/plot details on the film are being kept under lock-and-key by the studio and writer-director Christopher Nolan. The only tidbits we have to go on is that film is somewhat in tone to Inception meets North By Northwest. I’m hoping it’s another science fiction thriller, but I think it’s going to be a while before we get any concrete details on the Nolan project.
Filming is said to be taking place this summer.
Warner Bros. has given the mystery box project a release date of July 17th, 2020.
