It’s been revealed that Robert Downey Jr. and Matt Damon have joined Christopher Nolan’s upcoming movie, Oppenheimer.
This news was revealed by Deadline.
The movie is being made under Universal Pictures’ banner.
This will be the first movie that Christopher Nolan will make that won’t be a Warner Bros. Pictures production.
The two parties ended up parting ways after the whole HBO Max debacle.
Warner Bros. revealed that they would be releasing their latest movies on their streaming service, HBO Max.
This angered many filmmakers and was the last straw for Nolan who decided to make movies with another studio.
