DUNKIRK - July 2017

#1 Post by AndyDursin » Mon Dec 28, 2015 4:53 pm

I recall learning about this from THE WORLD AT WAR. Looks like a nice change of pace for Nolan:
Christopher Nolan looks to be headed to France during World War II for his next project.

Sources tell Variety that Nolan will direct “Dunkirk” from his own original screenplay as his next project. Insiders say the yet-to-be cast unknowns will lead the cast, but that Mark Rylance, Kenneth Branagh and Tom Hardy are in talks to join the ensemble.

Nolan will also produce the film with his longtime producing partner and wife, Emma Thomas.

The story is set during the legendary evacuation of the northern French city during WWII. Nolan and his casting department recently began testing teenagers in London for lead roles, but the director also wanted to nail down some choices for the few adult roles in the film before the holiday.

“We are thrilled to be continuing our collaboration with Christopher Nolan, a singular filmmaker who has created some of the most critically acclaimed and commercially successful films of all time,” said Greg Silverman, president, Creative Development and Worldwide Production. “‘Dunkirk’ is a gripping and powerful story and we are excited to see Chris, Emma and their cast realize it on the big screen.”

Warner Bros. has dated the film for July 21, 2017. The large-scale production will be shot on a combination of Imax 65mm and 65mm large format film for maximum image quality and high-impact immersion. Shooting will begin in May using many of the real locations of the true-life events, which form the background for the story.

Wonder if this will be the first Nolan movie to crack the three-hour mark.

Just find it odd that every new Nolan movie expands by approximately fifteen minutes.

Can't wait to hear Hans Zimmer's symphonic, theme-driven score. Ought to give previous WW II epic scores (like Empire of the Sun, Patton and Battle of Britain) a run for their money.

"This food is terrible! And such small portions!"

Remember, twenty years ago, when everyone would grouse about Varese albums that ran 30 minutes? Now we get every last damn note, but so little if it is worth listening to. :(

Battle of Britain, one of my favourites, next to The Colditz Story and Ice Cold in Alex.

Squadron Leader Skipper: Where are you taking those vultures?
RAF NCO: Officers to the mess, NCOs to the guard room, sir.
Squadron Leader Skipper: Like hell you are. They're responsible for all that [turning and gesturing to the ruined field], get 'em to clear it up!
RAF NCO: But, what about the officers, sir?
Squadron Leader Skipper: Give 'em a bloody shovel!

The film will probably be longer than the evacuation.
