Christopher Nolan is Scouting locations in France for his next film, which a French news report has said could be a World War II drama.
Nolan recently visited Dunkirk with his brother and regular co-scribe Jonathan Nolan (“Interstellar”) to scout for locations and has requested a shooting permit. Nolan is expected to film in the region next June, according to regional newspaper La Voix du Nord which cited the city Mayor Patrice Vergriete.
Nolan is no stranger to France since he spent a week in Paris to shoot a few scenes for “Inception” in 2009.
The helmer will now benefit from the improved French tax rebate that will be raised to 30% of eligible expenses incurred in France and capped at 30 million Euros (from the previous 20 million Euros) starting in January 2016.
Although the plot and cast of this untitled Christopher Nolan project have have yet to be unveiled, Warner Bros. has already set its release date for July 21, 2017.
John Bernard’s Paris-based line production company Peninsula Film, who previously collaborated with Nolan on “Inception,” has been tapped to work on the movie.
Nolan’s latest film, “Interstellar,” scored $673 million worldwide.
