Michael Caine Isn’t Sure What Christopher Nolan’s ‘Tenet’ Is About

Michael Caine Christopher Nolan Tenet

Tenet star Michael Caine explained that he has no idea what Christopher Nolan’s next film is about, revealing that he’s only shot for one day.

While Christopher Nolan’s Tenet maintains its July release date amid the coronavirus fears, Michael Caine recently revealed that even after shooting for a day on set, he has no idea what the film is about. The star is set to appear in the mysterious film alongside John David Washington and Robert Pattinson, which involves a group of agents who are seemingly attempting to stop World War Three. But Michael Caine revealed that the director didn’t reveal too much to him when he worked on set.

The Tenet star spoke to The Hindu about working with Christopher Nolan on the film, explaining that the director didn’t give him the full script – and he was only on set for one day. Although Michael Caine’s role in Tenet will presumably be quite small, the star did reveal that he worked with John David Washington. He also noted that he hasn’t heard anything about Tenet from Christopher Nolan since that day.

“I don’t know what it means. He is so secretive he won’t let me have the script. All I had was one day’s work and he gave me my pages. I did my part and shot only with John David. I haven’t heard anything since.”

Are you excited to see Tenet? What do you think Michael Caine’s role in the Christopher Nolan film is?

Full plot details on Christopher Nolan’s Tenet are currently under wraps, though Warner Bros. has officially described the film as “an action epic evolving from the world of international espionage.” Production on Tenet took place across seven countries.

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 on board as an executive producer.

Tenet will be released in theaters on July 17, 2020.
