Robert Downey Jr. and Matt Damon have joined the cast of Christopher Nolan’s Oppenheimer. Based on the book “American Prometheus: The Triumph and Tragedy of J. Robert Oppenheimer” by Kai Bird and Martin J. Sherwin, the film will follow the life and career of the man who invented the atomic bomb, as played by Cillian Murphy. Emily Blunt also as of late joined the cast and will play Oppenheimer’s significant other Katherine.
Presently, Deadline reports that two more huge names have been added to Oppenheimer. Robert Downey Jr. and Matt Damon have allegedly been cast in undefined jobs, joining Murphy and Blunt in the ambitious venture. While Damon recently worked with Nolan on Interstellar, this marks the chief’s first collaboration with Downey Jr. Oppenheimer is slated to begin shooting in the principal quarter of 2022 and appears to fabricate a gathering cast with these latest additions, with more names unquestionably en route to finish up the creation.
Downey Jr. as of late starred in 2020’s Dolittle, soon after wrapping the mega-hit Avengers: Endgame, in which he finished his run as Tony Stark/Iron Man in the MCU. The actor will next be seen in Jamie Foxx’s parody All-Star Weekend with Gerard Butler and Benicio Del Toro. Damon was most as of late in the thrill ride Stillwater, as well as the Ridley Scott film, The Last Duel, which he co-wrote with Ben Affleck.
Downey Jr. and Damon undoubtedly add to the family of what is looking like another solid outfit cast for Nolan, who has traditionally assembled such casts in past efforts. While Oppenheimer may not be the standard high-idea yarn that fans anticipate from Nolan, the chief has dabbled in evident life sagas before with Dunkirk, which actually managed to be a spectacle in its own right. Regardless of the subject, Nolan always has a particular take regarding his matter material and constructs an amazing cast around it, making for compelling, challenging and regularly awe-inspiring cinema. It will be interesting to perceive how he directs Oppenheimer to whatever take he has on the historical period, which will almost certainly be a treat for watchers when it debuts in July 2023.
