Emily Blunt is stepping into the world of Christopher Nolan. The actor is joining Cillian Murphy in Nolan’s Oppenheimer, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed. Universal is releasing the biopic of J. Robert Oppenheimer, the theoretical physicists remembered as one of the fathers of the atom bomb.
This is Blunt’s first project with Nolan, who is known for building relationships with actors over multiple films and tapped Murphy as his lead after including him in supporting roles dating back to 2005’s Batman Begins. Blunt recently appeared in Paramount’s A Quiet Place Part II and Disney’s Jungle Cruise. Deadline first reported the news of her casting.
Nolan will write and direct, while his creative partner and wife, Emma Thomas, will produce with Charles Roven of Atlas Entertainment.
Oppenheimer is based on American Prometheus: The Triumph and Tragedy of J. Robert Oppenheimer by Kai Bird and the late Martin J. Sherwin. Published in 2005, the book won the Pulitzer Prize.
Universal describes the project as an “epic thriller that thrusts audiences into the pulse-pounding paradox of the enigmatic man who must risk destroying the world in order to save it.” The studio has set a July 21, 2023, release date for Oppenheimer.
The final Trailer for A Quiet Place – Part II has been released. The movie will be released in theaters on May 28th.

New Project for Emily!
Dwayne Johnson and Emily Blunt are re-teaming on the superhero movie “Ball and Chain” following their collaboration on “Jungle Cruise.”
The project is being shopped among studios, including Netflix, but no distribution deal has closed.
“Ball and Chain” is being written by Oscar nominee Emily V. Gordon and is an adaptation of the ’90s comic of the same name by Scott Lobdell. It follows a married couple going through relationship turmoil who also have superpowers, but they only work properly when they’re together.
In addition to starring, Johnson and Blunt are also producing. Johnson’s Seven Bucks banner with Dany and Hiram Garcia will help produce along with Kevin Misher.
The two actors will appear in Disney’s “Jungle Cruise,” which had been set to be released on July 24, but but was pushed to July 30, 2021 due to theater closures amid the coronavirus pandemic.
Johnson will next be seen in Netflix’s action-comedy “Red Notice” opposite Gal Gadot and Ryan Reynolds. He is repped by WME, TGC Management and Gang Tyre.
Blunt will soon appear in “A Quiet Place Part II,” opposite spouse John Krasinski, who also directed the thriller sequel. Paramount had planned to release the film on March 18, but decided to push it to Sept. 4 due to coronavirus. She is repped by CAA and Sloane Offer.
Gordon, who received an Academy Award nomination with Kumail Nanjiani for “The Big Sick” screenplay, worked on the Apple TV Plus series “Little America.” She is repped by UTA and Schreck Rose.
