Star A Quiet Place and Jungle Cruise, Emily Blunt are reportedly in talks with Universal Studios to join Christopher Nolan’s new film project, Oppenheimer, which is slated for a 2023 release. If these talks go according to plan, Blunt will play Katherine Vissering Oppenheimer, the wife of J. Robert Oppenheimer, the principal scientist of the Manhattan Project, who brought the atomic bomb into the world. The character of J. Robert Oppenheimer himself will be played by Blunt’s co-star in A Quiet Place Part II, Cillian Murphy. Oppenheimerwhich is likely to feature Nolan’s thriller-style energy and edgy cinematic visuals, is slated to begin production in early 2022.
Emily Blunt herself recently appeared on Jungle Cruise which is a lighthearted adventure film and the film’s set pieces seem to reminisce about the Indiana Jones franchise. Earlier in the year, Blunt also appeared on A Quiet Place: Part II, reprising her starring role as Evelyn Abbott, a woman who struggles far beyond limits in a desperate struggle to survive, not only for herself but for her family. Both films were successful, with Disney confirming Jungle Cruise 2which promises the return of and A Quiet Place: Part II which managed to break the box office record of the pandemic era when it was released.
Oppenheimer will be Nolan’s first film since Teneta film that, like Nolan’s other famous brainbusters, Inceptionmaking this film re-watched many times and like Inceptionleaving many viewers of the film confused but interested in what really happened in the film.
The film will be adapted from the Pulitzer Prize-winning book “American Prometheus: The Triumph and Tragedy of J. Robert Oppenheimer” written by Kai Bird and Martin J. Sherwin. With that being said, it seems unlikely the plot will feature too many surprises and plot twists, but reality does sometimes get weirder than fiction, and with Nolan anything is possible. Oppenheimer is scheduled to be released on July 21, 2023.
