Dunkirk, which Nolan is directing from his own original screenplay, has cast a crop of newcomers who include Fionn Whitehead (ITV‘s Him), Jack Lowden (’71), Aneurin Barnard (Citadel), and One Direction singer/songwriter Harry Styles. Recent Academy Award winner Mark Rylance (Bridge of Spies), Kenneth Branagh (Valkyrie), Cillian Murphy (Inception), James D’Arcy (Cloud Atlas) and Tom Hardy (The Revenant) will be the more experienced members of what is said will be a largely young/unknown ensemble cast.
The Dunkirk movie opens as hundreds of thousands of British and Allied troops are surrounded by enemy forces. Trapped on the beach with their backs to the sea they face an impossible situation as the enemy closes in.
The large scale film will be shot on a combination of IMAX 65mm and 65mm large format film photography for maximum image quality and high impact immersion. Shooting will utilize many of the real locations of true-life events, which form the background for the story. Nolan will also produce the film with his longtime producing partner Emma Thomas.
Warner Bros. Pictures is distributing the Dunkirk movie worldwide and has slated the film for a July 21, 2017 release. The film will be released theatrically on IMAX, 70mm, 35mm and all other screens.
