More and more details are finally starting to emerge about Christopher Nolan's secretive next film, including what it's actually going to be called.

Warner Bros announced on Wednesday (May 22) that Nolan's first movie since 2017's Oscar-nominated Dunkirk is officially titled Tenet.

This doesn't exactly give much away surrounding the plot, but the film is being described as an action epic following the world of international espionage, so at least we have a rough idea of what it's about.

The studio also confirmed more cast members, and in news that will surprise absolutely no-one, the legendary Michael Caine has signed up for his eighth Nolan feature. They first teamed up for 2005's Batman Begins.

Dunkirk's Kenneth Branagh, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Clémence Poésy and Dimple Kapadia join John David Washington, Robert Pattinson and Elizabeth Debicki in the star-studded line-up.

As usual, Nolan also wrote the script and is producing. Shooting has already begun and will span seven countries.

Dunkirk's same production and costume team are also onboard, while the score is being composed by Ludwig Göransson, who won an Oscar and a Grammy for his work on Black Panther. So, expect it to look and sound monumental.

Tenet will be released in cinemas on July 17, 2020.
