Filmmaker Christopher Nolan’s films have been getting bigger over the years, the man now commanding giant tentpole action, sci-fi and drama films that boast budgets well into the nine-figure range. The same will be true of his new and still top secret next effort “Tenet”.
A report in Estonia-based ERR News (via Cinema Blend), where part of the project will be shot, suggests the project has an overall budget of around $225 million. That would make it the second most-expensive film of Christopher Nolan’s career, just shy of the $250 million “The Dark Knight Rises”.
Other films from him like “Inception” and “Interstellar” cost $160-$165 million each, “The Dark Knight” was $185 million, “Dunkirk” was a relatively cheap $100 million, and “The Prestige” was a tight $40 million.
Robert Pattinson, John David Washington, Elizabeth Debicki, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Kenneth Branagh and Michael Caine among others star in this “action epic revolving around the world of international espionage”. Pattinson has previously suggested the film is “the length of three movies”.
Tenet is scheduled for a July 17th 2020 release.
