Hot off yesterday’s news that “BlacKkKlansman” star John David Washington is the first cast member in talks for “The Dark Knight” and “Inception” director Christopher Nolan’s next film, today comes word of the second – Robert Pattinson.
Collider reports that the former “Twilight” turned acclaimed art house film star of the likes of “Good Time,” “Cosmopolis,” “The Rover,” “The Lost City of Z” and “The Childhood of a Leader” is poised to join the film as the second lead alongside Washington.
An ‘age-appropriate female lead’ and an ‘older male co-star’ are the two other lead characters. Plot details for the high profile title are under wraps, but has been dubbed a “massive, innovative action blockbuster” and will once again be shown in IMAX.
Nolan and Emma Thomas will produce the film which will shoot this Summer ahead of a July 17th 2020 release. Pattinson has multiple projects on the way including Claire Denis’ “High Life,” “The Witch” director Robert Eggers’ next film, David Michod’s “The King,” Antonio Campos’ “The Devil All the Time” and Ciro Guerra’s “Waiting for the Barbarians”.
