In the past few weeks there has been some news about Christopher Nolan's latest project "Oppenheimer". We recently reported that Emily Blunt is in talks for the role of Robert Oppenheimer's wife, and now there is already more to report. With Matt Damon and Robert Downey Jr. two absolute top stars are joining "Oppenheimer". For Downey Jr. in particular, it will be a unique experience, because the 56-year-old has never starred in a Nolan film before. For Nolan, in turn, the new movie will also be very exciting, because after the publicity-raising split between the director and Warner Bros. due to various disagreements over the release of his films, he is now producing for rival Universal Pictures. In terms of content, the blockbuster is about US scientist Robert Oppenheimer, who is generally regarded as the father of the atomic bomb as a result of his involvement in the Manhattan Project. The release date for "Oppenheimer" is set for July 21, 2023. It is not yet known which exact roles Matt Damon and Robert Downey Jr. are going to play in the film.
