Audiences may still be trying to put some clues together for Christopher Nolan’s mysterious project Tenet and now in a new profile with GQ, the director has teased that a new song from rapper Travis Scott will be the “final piece” of the film’s puzzle. (Via The Playlist)
In the seven-time Grammy nominee’s profile in the publication, Scott revealed that he has contributed a song to Nolan’s new project, while keeping the details of the song and its ties to the film close to the chest, simply saying “you literally just have to watch it. It’s very fire.”
“His voice became the final piece of a yearlong puzzle,” Nolan said. “His insights into the musical and narrative mechanism [composer] Ludwig Göransson and I were building were immediate, insightful, and profound.”
The highly-anticipated mystery project will first open in 70 countries including Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Korea, Russia, Spain and the U.K. on August 26, with some territories still yet to receive a release date, while select US cities will see the film open on September 3 ahead of the Labor Day weekend.
Tenet will be an international espionage thriller filmed across seven countries. John David Washington (BlacKkKlansman) stars, with a supporting cast that includes Robert Pattinson (Good Time), Elizabeth Debicki (Widows), Dimple Kapadia (Fugly), Aaron Taylor-Johnson (Avengers: Age of Ultron), Michael Caine (The Dark Knight Rises) and Kenneth Branagh (Dunkirk).
The director first made an impact in 2001 with his indie film Memento. His next film, Insomnia, was also a modest hit. but it wasn’t until Batman Begins hit theaters in 2005 that Nolan became a box office force in his own right. The Prestige was Nolan’s last movie to gross under $200 million worldwide. His other films include The Dark Knight, The Dark Knight Rises, Inception, Interstellar, and Dunkirk.
