A few small details about Christopher Nolan’s new film have come to surface.

The Hollywood Reporter has described the project as “a globe-trotting adventure that has shades of the mind-bending nature of Inception but does involve the time continuum.”

The description comes as part of a wider piece on the news Nolan has hired a new editor, Jennifer Lame, who last worked on last year’s horror hit Hereditary. He worked with Australian editor Lee Smith on all his movies since 2005’s Batman Begins, but Smith is currently working on Sam Mendes’s World War I epic 1917.

John David Washington, Elizabeth Debicki and Robert Pattinson have all been cast in the film. Pattinson has said he was locked in a room in order to read the highly anticipated film’s screenplay.

“I’ve been a little wary of doing big movies for years and years, but there’s just something about Chris Nolan’s stuff,” he continued.

“He seems like the only director now who can do what is essentially a very personal, independent movie that has huge scale. I read the script and it’s unreal.”

Christopher Nolan’s untitled new film will be released in July 2020.
