Yesterday news came out via Deadline concerning a new film by Nolan about Robert Oppenheimer and the development of the A-Bomb. It was wishful thinking as you can see below, that I was hoping that Rob may be involved seeing as they said “there will clearly be many big star parts” [My emphasis]

And although at the moment the only person who seems to possibly be attached to the film is Cillian Murphy. Which had me even more excited about Rob hopefully being involved – that is until my excitement went up an even bigger notch when this interesting tidbit that Rob actually gifted Nolan a book about Oppenheimer surfaced thanks to @metaplexmovies:

Clearly Nolan and Rob have spoken about this project …. right? A girl can dream and Nolan does like working with people he loves and he certainly did love Rob.

    Alright, alright! Let’s have RP as Oppenheimer ok? He has already played a Physics major in Tenet and said he read Feynman. And maybe others like Oppenheimer (presumably, since it is said that he gifted the anthology of RO’s speech to Nolan). More than that he looks like RO a lot with high cheek bones and face outline and if the Internet is to be believed, Oppenheimer was 5’10”, so the height sort of works out (better than short people playing tall characters). Only wrinkle is Nolan is not happy with WB and what effect it will have with a Nolan-RP partnership. But can anyone else play a tortured soul like RP does? Because Oppenheimer was a tortured soul.

    He could play Feynman too. But he will have to play the goofy charmer.

    I am not going to lie. I am concerned about how the Batman physique will affect all these other characters we want him to play. I won’t lose sleep over it but it is there.

    Hi PM – I posted about this story of Rob gifting the book to Nolan and so moved your comments to this post.

    It's definitely something interesting to keep an eye on (which I will do) and hopefully Nolan and Rob have spoken about the movie given the uniqueness of the gift.

    Absolutely, a girl's gotta dream! And let's be honest: stranger things have happened, right? I do like the book link theory ……..

    Thanks, Maria. Saw a tweet yesterday saying Priya in Tenet mentions Oppenheimer. Today I saw this tweet with the scene and what she says:

    So many possibilities. The movie could be about this new Tenet scientist who is haunted by Oppenheimer's ghost, LOL. Since it is Nolan, I don't think it will be a straight biopic of Oppenheimer.
