Absolutely, it will be that.

Chris Corbould about him in the last EMPIRE magazine issue :
But if you look at Interstellar and Dunkirk, that's him coming out of his comfort zone. He doesn't stick to a safe formula in a safe genre. He goes up to outer space, he's in the Second World War. I think he's exploring his own boundaries.
I love this sentence. Nothing can stop this man, forget Dunkirk, it will be something even more special, daring and ambitious.

oh man, how exciting.

I have, however, seen him smile, and laugh, and joke. Nolan has been described as humourless and aloof ("He is a cold guy who makes cold films", one Hollywood producer once told the LA Times), but for all his focus and unerring commitment, it is clear that making movies bring him joy.
I'll be surprised if he ever tackles anything a romcom, and I can still only guess what his big 2020 "event film" is going to be (I certainly wouldn't bet on him returning to his abandoned 2002 Howard Hughes project). But one reason his movies do so well, aside from their impressively distinct, reality-based visual texture, is because they are downright entertaining. Nolan has an instinct for what people enjoy watching, especially if it's something they don't know they'll enjoy. And that stems from his own sheer enjoyment of filmmaking. Every project he embarks on is an adventure, whether it's to the beaches of Northern France, the streets of Chicago or the mountains of Canada. Where the next adventure will take him remains a tentalising mystery. But one thing's for sure : it won't involve doing anything the easy way.

"I certainly wouldn't bet on him returning to his abandoned 2002 Howard Hughes project" makes me thing Dan Jolin occasionally monitor these boards. It feels like we're the only ones predicting that one.

Would an Inception sequel get you guys excited?

So on the topic of adventurous settings, some 'push the limit' settings that would certainly challenge him as a filmmaker

Desert
Underwater
Jungle

Nope. Part of its charm is that it didn’t get any sequel treatment. A high end video game based on the world might be cool though.
