The upcoming project from the Dunkirk director will be produced by Nolan and his partner Emma Thomas, and is slated for release in Imax on 17 July, 2020.

Washington — who is also the son of Denzel Washington — has previously acted in HBO’s Ballers, but turned heads on the silver screen for his leading role in Spike Lee’s BlacKkKlansman, where played a police officer who infiltrates the KKK in a comedic twist on the true story.

The actor and director are set to make a dynamic duo, with Nolan conversely coming off the success of his World War II film Dunkirk — for which won three Academy Awards and his first best director Oscar nomination. The Warner Bros film also grossed US$526.9 million (RM2.15 billion) globally (via The Hollywood Reporter).
