Filmmaker Christopher Nolan continues to add stars to an ever-growing ensemble for his next film, Oppenheimer. The Pearl Harbor star Josh Hartnett has now joined the cast of the Universal tentpole.
Josh Hartnett joins the cast of Christopher Nolan’s Oppenheimer starring Emily Blunt, Matt Damon and Robert Downey Jr.
According to Deadline, the details behind who Josh Hartnett will be playing are unknown at this time. He joins an A-list cast including Emily Blunt, Matt Damon, Robert Downey Jr., Florence Pugh, Rami Malek and Cillian Murphy, who is set to star in the title role as J. Robert Oppenheimer, the scientist who ran the Manhattan Project that led to the invention of the atomic bomb. The film is based on the Pulitzer Prize-winning book American Prometheus: The Triumph and Tragedy of J. Robert Oppenheimer by Kai Bird and the late Martin J. Sherwin.
Hartnett joining the cast is a full circle moment for both him and Nolan going all the way back to when Nolan was interested in him playing Bruce Wayne before ultimately tapping Christian Bale for the job in Batman Begins.
Nolan will also be producing Oppenheimer along with Emma Thomas and Atlas Entertainment’s Charles Roven.
On the work front, Josh Hartnett had a busy 2021 that included the Guy Ritchie action pic Wrath of Man. He can be seen next reuniting with Ritchie on Operation Fortune: Ruse de guerre and also has the Sky TV series The Fear Index.
The film will release on July 21, 2023, a slot typically saved for Nolan films in the past. It’s also roughly two weeks before the anniversary of the dropping of the bomb on Hiroshima. Universal will distribute Oppenheimer theatrically worldwide and release the film in North America.
