2021-10-12T12:04:05.313Z

Scheduled for July 2023, the biopic is dedicated to American physicist Julius Robert Oppenheimer. The actor and the director have already collaborated for the Batman, Inception and more recently Dunkirk trilogy.



The news had the effect of a bomb. After a final role in the guise of Tommy Shelby in the film dedicated to the famous English mafia of the

Peaky Blinders

, Cillian Murphy joins the cast of Christopher Nolan for

Oppenheimer

, a biopic dedicated to the "father of the atomic bomb", Julius Robert Oppenheimer. The feature film draws its inspiration from the biography

American Prometheus: the Triumph and Tragedy of J. Robert Oppenheimer

, written in 2005 by Kai Bird and Martin J. Sherwin. The book won the Pulitzer Prize the following year.

A feeling of déjà vu for Christopher Nolan and Cillian Murphy, since both have already collaborated for the

Batman

trilogy

, but also

Inception

 and more recently

Dunkirk

. This time, Cillian Murphy takes on the lead role. According to

Deadline

, his interpretation raises "

the paradoxes of an enigmatic man who has the mission to destroy the world in order to save it.

". Oppenheimer was scientific director of the Manhattan Project, the code name used for the research project that produced the first atomic bomb in history during World War II. On July 16, 1945, in the New Mexico desert, the first Trinity nuclear test - code name proposed by Oppenheimer - demonstrated the viability of this type of weapon. Faced with the result, the physicist reportedly declared:

"I have become death, the destroyer of worlds".

 The weapon was used a few weeks later, on August 6 and 9, 1945, for the bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, causing the deaths of more than 200,000 people.

Oppenheimer's

production is

slated to begin in early 2022 for a July 21, 2023 release in North American theaters. As with

The Dark Knight

and

Dunkirk

, the film will be shot with IMAX cameras. Christopher Nolan has decided to no longer work with his favorite studio Warner Bros., which has been broadcasting films simultaneously in theaters and streaming on HBO Max since the start of the pandemic. "

It left me stunned

," said the filmmaker in December 2020 during an interview with

Entertainment Tonight. 

These films are meant to be made available to the largest audience possible and now they are being used for a new streaming service, without any consultation.

".

Universal takes over and allocates a budget of $ 100 million for the biopic.

Oppenheimer

becomes the sixteenth film directed by Nolan.

It succeeds

Tenet

, the sci-fi thriller worn by actors John David Washington and Robert Pattinson.

With 800,000 admissions in one week,

Tenet

remained at the top of the box office in France for more than five weeks.
