Christopher Nolan's New Film is a Romantic Thriller Described as NORTH BY NORTHWEST Meets INCEPTION
Update: Warner Bros. have reached out to us regarding this news and they say that the information in the Production Weekly tweet are incorrect.
As a fan of director Christopher Nolan, I can’t wait to see what his next film project will be. His follow-up to Dunkirk has been shrouded in mystery, but today some interesting new details have come to light.
According to Production Weekly, Nolan’s new film is described as a romantic thriller that is a cross between Alfred Hitchcock’s North by Northwest, and his own Inception. While those are some vague details, it should be enough for fans to start popping with excitement.
DoP Hoyte van Hoytema is planning to re-team with Christopher Nolan on his upcoming production scheduled to begin filming this June.

The fact that Nolan is making a romantic thriller is intriguing. The director never deals directly with romance in his films, so it will be interesting to see what he’s got planned for this. He’s never really done anything romantic!
Also, I’m a big fan of North By Northwest, so the fact that this next film is going to be in the tone of that and Inception is pretty exciting. Does this mean that Nolan’s next movie will be a romantic spy thriller built around some kind of crazy big and mind-bending Nolan concept?
I can’t wait to see what this movie ends up being, but we’ll find out soon enough. Warner Bros. has already set the release date for the film for July 17, 2020.
What do you hope to see from Nolan’s next big movie project?
