According to The Hollywood ReporterBlackKklansman lead John David Washington will play the movie’s central protagonist, though details on who he is, what his story will be, or what any of the film is about has yet to be revealed.

The inclusions of Debicki and Pattinson are even more secretive, with the stars of recent releases Widows and High Life respectively each lending their talents to the film’s youthful albeit very small (as of this stage) cast.

Nolan, whose last film Dunkirk got him a nomination for Best Director at the 2018 Oscars, has written the script being described as “an innovative blockbuster” (Variety), with long-term production partners Warner Bros. set to distribute the picture. The film will also be released in Imax.
