Nolan, who completely severed his ties with the company in the past months due to the company’s HBO MAX strategy, has already agreed with Universal studios for his new movie Oppenheimer. The cast of the production, which Nolan describes as “a thriller about the chilling paradox of a mysterious man who must risk destroying the world in order to save it,” draws attention.

The character’s volatile relationship with Oppenheimer and the major security concerns it causes for government authorities will be transferred to the audience.

Malek will give life to one of the scientists involved in the project.
