Christopher Nolan is making a key change to his team – switching out Australian editor Lee Smith for Jennifer Lame. Smith has been Nolan’s go-to editor since 2005’s “Batman Begins” and have worked on everything together since right up to “Dunkirk” in 2017.
The pair’s collaborations have been most of Smith’s output since 2005, though he has had time to work with others including Matthew Vaughn on “X-Men: First Class,” Peter Weir on “The Way Back,” Gavin Hood on “Ender’s Game,” Neill Blomkamp on “Elysium,” Sam Mendes on “Spectre” and Simon Kinberg on this Summer’s “Dark Phoenix”.
However, Smith has just stepped onboard Mendes’ World War I epic “1917” which has made him unavailable to work on Nolan’s new untitled project starring John David Washington, Elizabeth Debicki and Robert Pattinson.
Lame has come from the indie world, mostly working with Noah Baumbach, and has done films like “Manchester by the Sea,” “Frances Ha,” “Mistress America” and more recently “Hereditary”.
Little is known about the new film which is dubbed a globe-trotting adventure, but one with “shades of the mind-bending nature of Inception but does involve the time continuum.”
