Fan Sighting in Budapest in mid February.
Possible shooting location?
Jonah said he was scout locating around that time in his VES acceptance speech.
Budapest in February, Croatia in August... maybe Eastern Europe will have an important role.
Many, many Westerns were shot in Southeast Europe! Personally I don't think it will be a western but it will definitely have western elements in it.

Two thoughts:

1. The fact that Nolan was in Budapest and no one knew, and that I could very well have met him accidentally... well, at this point I just wish I never knew he was here.

2. I may be horribly wrong, but Nolan doesn't look like someone who "needed to" film in Budapest, unless of course he is making a movie set in Budapest. I always had the impression that movies with a tighter budget came to Budapest because it's much cheaper to shoot here for several reasons (not just prices but there's a tricky taxation reason). I'm not talking about low budget films, but films that should definitely look high budget but don't have all the money they need. Of course BR2049 and now Dune was and is shooting here, and I guess both of those movies had a lot of money to work with, still, the only reason they were brought out here must've been financial reasons, despite their otherwise fairly big budget.

And seeing how Nolan went to Dunkerque to shoot the freaking film, and blew up hospitals and other buildings in the past and travelled to Iceland and back for the scenery whereas I'm pretty sure he could've just recreated those visual in a studio... it just doesn't seem reasonable to me that a Nolan production would move to Budapest for financial reasons.

Regarding financial reasons..

Keep in mind that Warner Brothers had some big management changes in 2018 and that might affect where they are focusing their money and may have changed how easily Nolan can get as much money as he wants.

Good catch. Syncopy can put up a certain amount of funding, and if they team with Legendary and/or others they can get more to work with. WB isn’t gonna skimp on CN most likely anyhow.

Warner Bros needs a new CEO now.

Kevin Tsujihara is exiting his role as chairman and CEO of Warner Bros. Entertainment, a job he’s held since 2013.

"It is in the best interest of WarnerMedia, Warner Bros., our employees and our partners for Kevin to step down as Chairman and CEO of Warner Bros.," said WarnerMedia CEO John Stankey on Monday. The executive did not name a replacement for Tsujihara.

Stankey added, "Kevin has contributed greatly to the studio’s success over the past 25 years and for that we thank him. Kevin acknowledges that his mistakes are inconsistent with the Company’s leadership expectations and could impact the Company’s ability to execute going forward."

In a Hollywood Reporter article on March 6, text messages between the executive and Charlotte Kirk revealed that Tsujihara said that he would push for auditions for the actress amid an apparent sexual relationship that he was having with Kirk. The actress appeared in two Warner Bros. films: 2016's How to Be Single and 2018's Ocean's 8. Tsujihara's personal attorney stated, "Mr. Tsujihara had no direct role in the hiring of this actress." An outside law firm continues to investigate the claims made against Tsujihara.

During his tenure, Tsujihara turned to Brett Ratner's RatPac-Dune Entertainment to help finance a slate of films, striking a four-year deal in 2013 for $450 million in funding for 75 features. After Ratner was accused of sexual misconduct in 2017, the studio cut ties with the producer and opted not to renews the RatPac-Dune deal last year, finding other sources of financing such as a deal with Bron Studios to co-finance six films. As AT&T gets ready to offer its own WarnerMedia streaming service next year, Warners recently bought back RatPac-Dune's minority stake in such films as Wonder Woman, Dunkirk and It for $290 million.

Tsujihara has also taken a leading role in negotiating with theater owners to allow premium, in-home viewing of movies.

Hans Zimmer is scoring DUNE.

A Zimmer score for Denis and potentially Nolan in one year is Thanos snap level. Can we handle it?!!

From @Collins in the Soundtrack thread...

"He's also doing Wonder Woman 1984, Top Gun: Maverick and the SpongeBob movie all for summer of 2020."
