It appears that Christopher Nolan is going to get exactly what he wanted.

Nolan's next project, Oppenheimer, now has a release date and a lead actor.

The news comes just weeks after Nolan decided to shop Oppenheimer around to other studios.

Nolan's very public distaste for Warner Bros. simultaneous release schedule with HBO Max prompted the split.

This will mark the first time that Nolan will work on a film for Universal Pictures.

Oppenheimer will see Nolan reunite with Cillian Murphy, who he's worked with several times in the past.

Murphy will take on the role of the titular scientist in a film that's set to release on July 21, 2023.
