Christopher Nolan is shopping his next movie to several studios
By Ray Ampoloquio September 11, 2021
Christopher Nolan's relationship with Warner Bros. runs deep.
In fact, all but two of his eleven films have been distributed by Warner Bros.
However, it appears that Christopher Nolan is ready to cut ties with Warner Bros for his upcoming project.
The award-winning director is reportedly shopping his next film to other studios due to a disagreement with Warner Bros.
Nolan's next film will center on the part that J. Robert Oppenheimer played in developing the atomic bomb in World War II.
If we believe the reports, then Nolan's next film will mark his first movie that will not be produced or distributed by Warner Bros.
The main reason for this appears to be the studio's release schedule for its 2021 films.
For 2021, Warner Bros. decided to release all of its films on the same day in theaters and on HBO Max.
If you look at how poorly Warner Bros' movies have done at the box office, you'd understand why he's not keen on working with the studio.
James Gunn's The Suicide Squad was a major disappointment at the box office.
This was despite the stellar reviews that the film had received prior to the film's release on August 5.
The same goes for the Hugh Jackman-led Reminiscence.
The sci-fi thriller set the record for the worst debut ever for a film playing in over 3,000 theaters after grossing just $18 million against an estimated $68 million budget.
Maybe The Matrix Resurrections will fare any better? Perhaps, but don't count on it.
Nolan is an influential figure within the movie industry.
We wouldn't be surprised if him shopping around his next movie will start a bidding war among studios.
Just don't expect Nolan to let his next film release direct-to-streaming.
