Hopefully he already has some ideas on what he wants to do next.
The award season will keep him busy longer than usual. Especially if he gets nominated as director. There's a lot of promotion you have to do with that. A lot of luncheons, dinners and butts you have to kiss.
Plus, I'm sure he was supervising the work on the 4K releases of his films and the release of Dunkirk on home media.
I believe, with the exception of The Dark Knight, Nolan's strengths are put to better use when the budget is tighter and the story is more confined. The Prestige, Memento, and Dunkirk are good examples of this.
I'd like to see something like The Prestige, something period-piece. I don't think he'd pull off horror, but murder mystery? Absolutely.
