Another Dutch news article that speculates quite a bit about stuff, like where extras are going to have to park and that the harbor has been rented by the crew (until september) and stuff. No real new info and no real confirmation, but you know

"At the borough of Urk, little more is known than the production has rented the harbor through august and the extras will have to park on the green slip next to the Urkervaart. How the contact with the filmcrew was brought about or how things will go this summer, the spokesperson can't say."

- The crew will film for 20 days in The Netherlands starting end june.
- They bought an 5 million dollar classic plane which they've rebuilt for filming. They will mount IMAX camera's on the plane and some actors (don't know who) will 'fly' the plane. (proffesional pilots will fly the plane, but like filming in a car, the pilots will sit at another spot in the plane, and the actors will sit at the main controls)
-
From what i've understood, they will also crash that expensive plane. (or at least a wreckage)
- One scene is on a (small?) boat where only eight people can be on (including crew).
- Nolan and crew will also blow up alot of stuff like they've been doing the last few days in France.

That same person has also read the script and said that he had 45 minutes to read it and like Star Wars, the script is dark red which prevents it from being copied. There are only three scripts in circulation and you have to get permission to read it and you can only read it in a specific room.
How did you get this infromation ? Beacause i live in the Netherlands. And i wanted to attent to be a extra on the film.
I hope you understand my question.

RUMOR: Warner Brothers Purchased a $5 Million WW2 Plane for Christopher Nolan to Crash
Christopher Nolan has been hard at work shooting Dunkirk for almost a month now and I’ve been hearing some interesting details from inside the production. Not surprisingly, the detail oriented director is shooting practically as much as possible, using real WW2 era warships at the site of the original battle in Dunkirk, France until the first week or July before moving to Holland, the U.K. and then Los Angeles.

For the unfamiliar, Dunkirk is the true story centering on the rescue of 330,000 British, French and Belgium Allied troops after Germany effectively cut off and surrounded them at the harbor of Dunkirk, France during World War 2. The operation, consisting of over 800 boats is considered by many to be the greatest military operation in the history of mankind.

To bring the amazing true story to life Nolan has enlisted an all-star cast consisting of Tom Hardy, Mark Rylance, Kenneth Branagh, Cillian Murphy and Fionn Whitehead, with smaller roles being filled out by Aneurin Barnard, Harry Styles, James D’Arcy, Jack Lowden and Barry Keoghan.

A source tells me that Warner Brothers recently signed a five million dollar check to purchase a vintage WW2 aircraft, (possibly a German Luftwafee) which will be outfitted with IMAX cameras to be used in what are sure to be some impressive sequences in the film. And when they’re done, they are going to crash it.

Buying and crashing a five million dollar plane might seem lavish and outrageous, but the source tells me that internally Warner Brothers are expecting Dunkirk to perform similarly to Nolan’s surprise runaway hit Inception, which earned more than $825M at the box office in 2010. Does Nolan really need to destroy an important piece of history? Probably not. Will it look amazing? I’m certain it will, but in an age of convincing digital effects it seems a bit unconscionable to me.

Dunkirk is set for release on July 21, 2017, but I’m told we could get our first look via a teaser trailer attached to Suicide Squad on August 5th.

With no survivors?

Oh fuck off

Interesting to note that WB sees this as potentially pulling an Inception at the box office. I would have expected Interstellar to be their goal.
