The film, written by Nolan, features a cast led by Washington, who will be joined by Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Robert Pattinson, Elizabeth Debicki, Kenneth Branagh, Dimple Kapadia, and Michael Caine.

Nolan revealed upon the announcement of Tenet that the film would be an “event film” and that its debut will come in IMAX format –

“We’re jumping off from the point of view of an espionage film, but we’re going to a number of different places,”

“We’re crossing a few different genres in a hopefully exciting and fresh way. [Producer] Emma [Thomas] and I have put together a lot of large-scale productions, but this is certainly the biggest in terms of international reach. We shot in seven countries, all over the place, with a massive cast and huge set pieces. There’s no question, it’s the most ambitious film we’ve made.”
