Production[edit]

Development[edit]

Composer Ludwig Göransson will be writing the score, marking a departure from the director's frequent collaborator Hans Zimmer.[1] It is also the first Nolan film since Batman Begins without editor Lee Smith, who was replaced by Jennifer Lame.[2] Nolan traveled to Mumbai in February and April 2019 for location scouting.[3]

Casting[edit]

In March 2019, John David Washington, Robert Pattinson, and Elizabeth Debicki were cast.[4][5] Pattinson said the script was kept so secretive that he only read it once while locked in a room.[6] Additional cast members Dimple Kapadia, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Clémence Poésy, Michael Caine, and Kenneth Branagh were announced as filming started.[7]

Filming[edit]

Principal photography began in May 2019 and will take place in seven countries, including the United Kingdom, Estonia, Italy, and India.[3][8][9][10] In June, the mayor of Tallinn expressed concerns about potential disruptions regarding plans to shoot at Laagna Road in July, which originally required a stretch of it to be closed for one month. In response, representatives in Tartu solicited the filmmakers to shoot there instead.[11] They eventually reached a compromise for Laagna Road, involving temporary road closures and detours from July 10–28.[12] Linnahall also serves as a set.[13] Portions of the film will be shot in Mumbai in September.[3]

Director of photography Hoyte van Hoytema is using a combination of 70mm film and IMAX.[14]

Release[edit]

In January 2019, Warner Bros. Pictures set the film for a July 17, 2020 release. It is the fifth Nolan film to be released in the third weekend of July, which Deadline Hollywood called "a lucky date for Nolan" as his preceding four films that had opened in that period went on to achieve box office success.[15]
