Christopher Nolan’s upcoming venture has a surprise in store for Indian audiences as the ace filmmaker’s film also features Bollywood actress Dimple Kapadia in a pivotal role.
Clémence Poésy, the French actress who may be known as Fleur Delacour in the Harry Potter movie has also joined the stellar starcast.
Tenet is described as an action epic evolving from the world of international espionage and is being filmed in seven countries, using a mix of Imax and 70mm film.
Tenet will follow his critically acclaimed and commercially well received war-drama Dunkirk. Nolan has pulled off a casting coup, as the film will have an international ensemble cast, which includes the likes of Twilight star Robert Pattinson and Denzel Washington’s son John David.
It was earlier reported that Nolan’s upcoming venture will be led by a non-black actor, a first for the renowned filmmaker. John David, who last featured in Spike Lee’s BlacKkKlansman, will indeed play the lead role in Tenet.
An official press release of the plot summary, quoted by screencrush.com, states about Tenet: Tenet, which is being filmed on location across seven contries, is an action epic evolving from the world of international espionage. The entire ensemble cast is led by John David Washington and also stars Robert Pattinson, Elizabeth Debicki, Dimple Kapadia, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Clemence Poesy, with Michael Caine and Kenneth Branagh.
