For the first time since 2005’s Batman Begins, Christopher Nolan will be using a new editor: Jennifer Lame. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Lame (Hereditary, Manchester by the Sea) will take the editing post held by Oscar winner Lee Smith for the last 15 years. Smith, who won an Oscar for Dunkirk, will be working on Sam Mendes’ World War I epic releasing this Christmas titled 1917.
Nolan’s project is still shrouded in secrecy, but The Hollywood Reporter states their sources have described the film as a “globe-trotting adventure that has shades of the mind-bending nature of Inception but does involve the time continuum.” These reports align with recent rumors pointing towards the film shooting in Italy, Norway, and Budapest.
Lame is known for her work on Hereditary and Manchester by the Sea, as mentioned above, as well as Noah Baumbach’s films The Meyerowitz Stories (New and Selected) and Frances Ha. Production on Nolan’s project is rumored to begin this June, with a release date set for July 17, 2020.
