Christopher Nolan’s Next Movie Coming in 2017

Warner Bros. will release an untitled Christopher Nolan movie on July 21, 2017.

It’s his first feature since “Interstellar,” which opened last November and scored worldwide grosses of $673 million, with Paramount handling the domestic release and Warners on the international rollout.

Warner Bros. has all rights on the new project but gave no details. The dating announcement was the first news of the project.

The studio handled all three films in Nolan’s Dark Knight series — “Batman Begins,” “The Dark Knight” and “The Dark Knight Rises” — along with his 2010 sci-fi hit “Inception.” The trilogy grossed $2.45 billion worldwide, while “Inception” took in over $800 million.

Nolan produces through his Syncopy label with spouse Emma Thomas. He directed and had screenwriting credits on the Dark Knight trilogy, “Inception,” “Interstellar” and his 2006 drama “The Prestige.”

Nolan came on to direct “Interstellar” in early 2013 and co-wrote the script with his brother Jonathan Nolan while producing the film with Thomas and Lynda Obst.

The Nolan movie is the fourth title to be dated for July 21, 2017, following Universal’s “Pitch Perfect 3,” EuropaCorp’s “Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets” and an untitled Blue Sky animation project from Fox.
