Per Deadline and The Hollywood Reporter, Christopher Nolan has finished his next script and film studios Sony, Universal, and Paramount have already read it.

The plot revolves around the Manhattan Project, the top secret nuclear weapons development program headed by J. Robert Oppenheimer in the 1940s which culminated with the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki which ended the Pacific War. Actor Cillian Murphy will reportedly be in the film.

No word yet on whether Warner Bros will convince Nolan to take the project to them after their apparent fallout over Warner Bros’ plan to release all their 2021 films in theaters and on HBO Max simultaneously.
