Christopher Nolan’s Tenet Casts Its Final Role With Yesterday Star Himesh Patel

Christopher Nolan’s international espionage event film Tenet has cast one of its last remaining roles. British actor Himesh Patel who landed the lead role in Yesterday has been roped in for what Variety is touting “one of its lead roles”. His entry marks the second actor of Indian-born descent to star in Tenet after Dimple Kapadia landed one of the other pivotal roles.

Tenet is filming across 7 countries and is expected to continue principal photography well until December. The movie recently got a surge in social media activity when Warner Bros. secretly debuted a Tenet teaser trailer ahead of Hobbs and Shaw screenings, with no prior promotion. This was followed by the movie’s website and first poster going live, all with minimal fanfare thanks to Nolan’s social media abstinence.

Despite the secret nature of production, set photos have poured in regularly, showing us our first unofficial looks at John David Washington, Robert Pattinson and Elizabeth Debicki. The film should be winding up its schedule in Estonia as it looks to film in India next month.

Tenet releases in theaters next year, on July 17, 2020. It is written and directed by Christopher Nolan and stars John David-Washington, Robert Pattinson, Elizabeth Debicki, Clemence Poesy, Aaron Taylor-Johnson and Dimple Kapadia with Kenneth Branagh and Michael Caine. Nolan will produce with his partner Emma Thomas with the film being distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures.
