Christopher Nolan has found the "mother" of the atomic bomb. The British filmmaker is preparing his new film, 'Oppenheimer', and if we recently learned that it will star Cillian Murphy, now Deadline advances that a possible co-star actress is in negotiations to join the project.
None other than Emily Blunt, a British actress who had not yet worked with Nolan, could join 'Oppenheimer'. The protagonist of 'A Quiet Place' film would play the wife of J. Robert Oppenheimer, the title character who will play Murphy. Oppenheimer led the Manhattan Project that he came up with with the invention of the atomic bomb, and later he regretted it and came to position himself against nuclear war.
The 'Peaky Blinders' star has worked with Nolan several times, who is known for forging fruitful and long-lasting relationships with many of his actors. The filmmaker's collaboration with Emily Blunt, an interpreter who has shown versatility working in comedy ('The Devil Wears Prada'), action ('Edge of Tomorrow', 'Sicario'), drama, horror, and even musical would be promising.
Almost two years of waiting
Little else is known about 'Oppenheimer' right now. Nolan's new film will open in theaters on July 21, 2023, and it will do so for the first time in many years outside of Warner Bros. The filmmaker starred in a resounding studio search a few months ago, after harshly criticizing the " major "which produced 'Tenet' and nearly all of its previous films for its strategy of releasing the titles in 2021 at the same time in theaters and on HBO Max. Universal Pictures will distribute his new film around the world.
"Oppenheimer" will be based on the Pulitzer-winning book "American Prometheus: The Triumph and Tragedy of J. Robert Oppenheimer." Emily Blunt has not had a bad year, between 'Jungle Cruise' and 'A quiet place 2', the seventh and fifth highest grossing films of the year in the US.
