Christopher Nolan is returning to Warner Bros. to make a film for 2017 -- but neither are saying what it is exactly, according to Variety.
Announced Wednesday with a July 21, 2017 release date, this is something of a return for Nolan, whose last film, Interstellar, was released by Paramount domestically and Warner Bros internationally. Warner Bros. was home to Inception and, of course, the three Dark Knight films.
Although no details of the film have been released, Variety made it a point to mention that the studio owns "all rights" to the new film. It's possible that the film could be an adaptation of one of Warner Bros.' in-house properties (including even a DC project, though unlikely given Wonder Woman is scheduled for release a month prior on June 23, 2017), but in many cases original films also have all their rights signed over to studios as well.
The July 21, 2017 release date puts the unnamed film in direct opoosition to Pitch Perfect 3, the comic book-based Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets, and an unnamed animated film from Fox and Blue Sky Animation. Sony's Marvel Studios produced Spider-Man relaunch is scheduled for release the week after, July 28, 2017.
