What is the new Christopher Nolan movie?

Christopher Nolan hasn’t announced his next movie just yet, and he’s not starting work on anything during the current Hollywood strikes, however he has stated his interest in making a James Bond movie.

Nolan told the BBC this week that he, understandably, won’t start a new project during the 2023 Writers Strike. As far as we know, he doesn’t have anything concrete in the pipeline, but he did give an indication of the kind of movies he wants to make.

“I make the films that I really want to go to the cinema and sit down with my popcorn and watch. I started making films when I was a kid. I made Super 8 films from when I was seven or eight years old and I’ve never stopped,” he said.

He has been linked to both James Bond and Star Wars in the past, and recently said he’d be honored to have the chance to make a new 007 movie. Additionally, Nolan didn’t say no when recently asked about Star Wars.

He has also often talked about potentially turning the ’60s TV series The Prisoner into a movie, so that could be next. Watch this space, and we’ll update the guide once we know what Nolan will do next.
