Christopher Nolan has called John Blakes Washington from BlacKkKlansman to star in his upcoming "Event Movie". Sources say Variety .
Nolan recently completed the script for the film and Warner Bros. For July 17, 2020, it is a slot that the studio often reserves for the director, most recently at Dunkirk. Not only was the film at the box office a great success, it also raised $ 526 million at the box office worldwide, but it earned Nolan an Oscar nomination for the director, his first in the category.
The show has become one of the most sought-after in the city, although most of the industry remains in the dark, who has met for the role and what the movie is even about.
The details of the plot under lock and key. An insider described the picture as a massive, innovative action blockbuster that will be shown again in Imax.
Nolan also produces together with his partner Emma Thomas. Production should start later this year.
Following the outbreak of Dwayne Johnson's successful HBO series "Ballers," Washington is a monster year on the film side, starting with his main concert in "BlacKkKlansman," the best-won adapted script at the Oscars. The role earned him rave reviews, as well as Golden Globe and SAG nominations for the Best Actor. Washington also had strong performances in "The Old Man & the Gun" and "Monsters and Men".
He is replaced by WME.
