Christopher Nolan’s upcoming film, Oppenheimer has added one of the director’s frequent collaborators, Kenneth Branagh to the cast.

Following an unfortunate divorce with Warner Bros, Christopher Nolan found a new home at Universal Pictures and began work on a new film about the life of J. Robert Oppenheimer. Since then the director has been steadily filling out the cast with a number of big names. Emily Blunt, Robert Downey Jr., Florence Pugh, Dane DeHaan among many others have been added to the roster. Now the film has added another Nolan collaborator to its cast.

Earlier today, Universal through several media outlets including Variety revealed that Kenneth Branagh had been added to the cast of Christopher Nolan’s Oppenheimer. Branagh previously collaborated with Nolan on his last two projects. In the first Dunkirk, he portrayed Commander Bolton and was the main antagonist in the 2020 film, Tenet. The actor also has an extensive directorial resume which includes the recently released Death on the Nile and the film Belfast which has been nominated for 7 Academy Awards. It is currently unknown who the actor will be playing.

Here’s the synopsis for Christopher Nolan’s and Kenneth Branagh’s latest collaboration, Tenet:

Armed with only one word—Tenet—and fighting for the survival of the entire world, the Protagonist journeys through a twilight world of international espionage on a mission that will unfold in something beyond real time. Not time travel. Inversion.

Written and directed by Christopher Nolan, Tenet stars John David Washington, Robert Pattinson, Elizabeth Debicki, Dimple Kapadia, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Clémence Poésy, Michael Caine, Kenneth Branagh, and Himesh Patel. Christopher Nolan also serves as a producer alongside his wife Emma Thomas, with Thomas Hayslip as an executive producer.

Tenet is available on Blu-Ray, DVD, and Digital Download, while Oppenheimer will hit theaters on July 21, 2023. Stay tuned for all the latest news surrounding Oppenheimer, and be sure to subscribe to Heroic Hollywood’s YouTube channel for more original video content.
