Tenet: Christopher Nolan, Robert Pattinson reach Mumbai for 10-day shoot schedule
Hollywood filmmaker Christopher Nolan and actor Robert Pattinson have arrived in Mumbai for a shoot schedule of their next film, Tenet. The film also stars Elizabeth Debicki, Kenneth Branagh, Michael Caine and Dimple Kapadia.
Mumbai Mirror claimed to have spotted Nolan at the Mumbai airport Friday morning and reported that the filmmaker will begin preparing for the shoot of his film. “The main sequences are expected to be filmed shortly. He (Nolan) will leave the city close to the month-end,” it quoted a source as saying.
A few pictures of the director and the actor at the airport also surfaced online. Check them out here:
The team is likely to begin shoot by mid September and film action scenes, including a chase sequence, the report further claimed.
Earlier in July, Dimple’s pictures from the sets of the film in Estonia surfaced online and had fans guessing traits of her character. Elizabeth Debicki, Kenneth Branagh, Robert Pattinson, Christopher Nolan were also spotted in another set of pictures from Estonia.
In early August, a teaser trailer for the action film was reportedly shown before US screenings of the latest Fast & Furious film, Hobbs & Shaw. The one-minute teaser features actor John David Washington, who is introduced as ‘a new protagonist’, and is the only billed actor.
According to media reports, the teaser opens with a shot of a bullet hole in glass and Washington’s character surveys the hole as the camera tracks his movement sideways revealing more damage. The audience is then treated to quick cuts between action shots, including what appears to be a masked swat team, before finally showing Washington’s character, wearing an oxygen mask. A pulsating, bass-heavy track plays in the background, as the words, “Time has come for a new protagonist,” and “Time has come for a new kind of mission,” are shown on screen.
Touted to an international espionage action thriller with a sci-fi twist, Tenet also stars Kenneth Branagh and Michael Caine. It is slated for a July, 2020 release.
Being reportedly made at an estimated budget of $225 million, Tenet is Nolan’s most expensive film after the $250 million The Dark Knight Rises.
