By Ray Ampoloquio November 3, 2021

Christopher Nolan's next film, Oppenheimer, is going to be quite the star-studded affair.

Recent reports suggest that Robert Downey Jr. and Matt Damon are both in talks to join the cast of the film.

The report comes just weeks after Emily Blunt was reported to be in the talks to join the cast as well.

Oppenheimer marks Nolan's first film with Universal Pictures.

Nolan previously had a close relationship with Warner Bros. before things went sour following 2020's Tenet. 

Nolan was reported to have shopped Oppenheimer to several studios earlier this year. 

Nolan eventually struck a deal with Universal Pictures and now Oppenheimer is set to start filming in 2022.
