According to a report in Variety, Christopher Nolan is teaming up with VFX studio DNEG for Oppenheimer. This marks the eighth collaboration between Nolan and the studio. The upcoming project is touted as an ‘epic thriller that thrusts audiences into the pulse-pounding paradox of the enigmatic man, who must risk destroying the world in order to save it’.

Oppenheimer is based on Kai Bird and Martin Sherwin's Pulitzer Prize-winning biography American Prometheus: The Triumph and Tragedy of J Robert Oppenheimer. Published in 2006, the book reportedly took Kai and Martin 25 years to research and write. Both authors are credited as writers of the film, with Christopher himself penning the screenplay, Variety reported. Universal Pictures won a bidding war for the project, Christopher’s first movie in years not made with his long-time studio home, Warner Bros.
