As previously reported, the sixth and final season of 'Peaky Blinders' has completed filming and after that, a feature film will wrap the storyline. Cillian Murphy is lining up gigs for once his time as Tommy Shelby is through. One of those projects include reuniting with an old friend...
Cillian Murphy and Christopher Nolan are reuniting on the latter's next directorial effort.
'Oppenheimer' will centre on J. Robert Oppenheimer - the scientist who is considered to be one of the fathers of the atomic bomb, and who helped develop the bomb during World War II.
It has been rumoured previously that the Irish actor would be leading the feature but now the news is confirmed.
Cillian Murphy and Christopher Nolan previously worked together on 'Batman Begins', 'The Dark Knight Rises', 'Inception', and 'Dunkirk'.
The latter marks the last movie in which Nolan took World War II as his subject matter.
After a bidding war between the major movie studios, Universal Pictures landed 'Oppenheimer'.
They're releasing the movie on July 21, 2023, a slot typically saved for Nolan films in the past.
Per Deadline, "the iMax-shot epic thriller thrusts audiences into the pulse-pounding paradox of the enigmatic man who must risk destroying the world in order to save it."
The film is based on the Pulitzer Prize-winning book 'American Prometheus: The Triumph And Tragedy Of J Robert Oppenheimer' by Kai Bird and the late Martin J Sherwin.
Nolan, whose last feature was 'Tenet', is also penning the script.
Cillian Muprhy fans can also look forward to seeing the actor in such upcoming features as 'Hippie Hippie Shake', based on the real life counter-culturalist Richard Neville.
He loans his voice to the upcoming animated feature 'Kensuke's Kingdom', with Sally Hawkins and 'Inception' co-star Ken Watanabe.
