Although all other details are being kept under wraps, a new report from Variety confirms that Warner Bros. has set Christopher Nolan’s next film for release on July 21, 2017. The as-yet-untitled film will be Nolan’s first since last year’s Interstellar and his tenth overall feature.
The film’s release date puts it up against Pitch Perfect 3, Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets and an untitled animated project. Additionally, Marvel and Sony’s new Spider-Man film will be hitting theaters a week after and War of the Planet of the Apes a week before.
Ever since 2006’s The Prestige, Nolan has been releasing one film every two years, following that with 2008’s The Dark Knight, 2010’s Inception, 2012’s The Dark Knight Rises and 2014’s Interstellar, so the director’s 2017 film will break that pattern.
Nolan recently helmed a documentary short titled Quay, which focused on the work of stop-motion animators Stephen and Timothy Quay.
