Peaky Blinders Cillian Murphy To Star In Christopher Nolan’s Next Film

‘Peaky Blinders’ star Cillian Murphy will play J. Robert Oppenheimer, the American physicist whose role in running the Los Alamos (Nevada) Laboratory and involvement in the Manhattan Project has led him to be dubbed the “father of the atomic bomb”, reports The last time we saw Murphy in a film was in John Krasinski’s ‘A Quiet Place II’.

The upcoming historical epic will be directed by Christopher Nolan, who has previously collaborated with Murphy in ‘Batman Begins’ (where the actor memorably essayed the role of Scarecrow), ‘Inception’ and ‘Dunkirk’. The last Christopher Nolan project that created a buzz was ‘Tenet’.

Universal Pictures, according to, will make the $100 million film after winning the rights in “a feverish bidding war that also saw the likes of Paramount, Sony and Warner Bros”.

The latter studio had released nearly every Nolan picture, the latest being ‘Tenet’, but their relationship grew strained after the filmmaker criticised Warner Bros for releasing its entire 2021 slate simultaneously in theatres and on HBO Max because of the Covid-19 pandemic.

The upcoming film is not only going to be written and directed by Nolan but it will also be produced by Emma Thomas and Atlas Entertainment’s Charles Roven and Nolan. The film is going to be based on the Pulitzer Prize-winning book ‘American Prometheus: The Triumph and Tragedy of J. Robert Oppenheimer’ which is written by Kai Bird and the late Martin J. Sherwin. Sadly, Martin J. Sherwin passed away earlier this week.

‘Oppenheimer’ is slated for a July 21, 2023 release across North America. Meanwhile, you can watch Cillian Murphy in ‘Peaky Blinders’, streaming now on Netflix.
