Christopher Nolan Talks About His Next Project

During an interview with Variety in November 2023, Christopher Nolan spoke about his biographical saga, comic books and novel adaptations, and his upcoming project. While talking about how dedicated he feels towards his projects, the Dunkirk director said-

“Ideas come from everywhere. I’ve done a remake, I’ve made adaptations from comic books and novels, and I’ve written original screenplays. I’m open to anything. But as a writer and director, whatever I do, I have to feel like I own it completely. I have to make it original to me: The initial seed of an idea may come from elsewhere, but it has to go through my fingers on a keyboard and come out through my eyes alone,”

While promoting Oppenheimer, Christopher Nolan appeared for an interview with The New York Times in 2023. The celebrated filmmaker straightaway mentioned that he would always do one thing at a time. He said-

“As I do interviews and the film’s coming out, I’m always asked, do you know what you’re doing next? And the answer is always the same. For me, I do one thing at a time and I put everything into it obsessively, and the film is not finished. Well, the way I like to put it is, the audience finishes the film.”

Oppenheimer has grossed a box office collection of $950 million against the production budget of $100 million. The sci-fi epic took the front row during this award season and even brought Robert Downey Jr. and Cillian Murphy their first Oscars.

The Inception director even thanked his wife and the producer of his movies, Emma Thomas. Nolan said-

The incredible Emma Thomas, producer of all our films and all of our children. I love you. To the academy, just to say movies are just a little bit over 100 years old. I mean, imagine being there 100 years into painting or theater. We don’t know where this incredible journey is going from here. But to know that you think that I’m a meaningful part of it means the world to me.”

Oppenheimer left behind critically acclaimed movies like Sandra Huller’s Anatomy Of A Fall, Emma Stone’s Poor Things, Jonathan Glazer’s The Zone Of Interest, and Lily Gladstone’s Killers Of The Flower Moon.
