MANILA, Philippines – Warner Bros. Pictures announced that Christopher Nolan will direct “Dunkirk” from his own original screenplay.

The announcement was made by Greg Silverman, president of Creative Development and Worldwide Production.

“We are thrilled to be continuing our collaboration with Christopher Nolan, a singular filmmaker who has created some of the most critically acclaimed and commercially successful films of all time," Silverman stated.

"'Dunkirk' is a gripping and powerful story and we are excited to see Chris, Emma and their cast realize it on the big screen,” he added.

The film is an epic action thriller set during the legendary evacuation.

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 begin in May using many of the real locations of the true-life events, which form the background for the story.

The cast will be headed by yet-to-be-cast unknowns. Currently on the talks to also be part of the film are Mark Rylance, Kenneth Branagh and Tom Hardy.

Nolan will also produce the film with his longtime producing partner Emma Thomas.

Warner Bros. Pictures is distributing “Dunkirk” worldwide and has slated the film for a July 21, 2017 release.
