Pre-production

Dunkirk, which revolves around the Dunkirk evacuation during World War II, is based on an original screenplay written by Christopher Nolan.[1] Hoyte van Hoytema was chosen to undertake the cinematography; Hoytema previously collaborated with Nolan on his 2014 film Interstellar.[2]

Tom Hardy, Kenneth Branagh and Mark Rylance were in talks to join the ensemble as supporting characters in late 2015.[1][3] Fionn Whitehead was cast as the lead in March 2016,[4] and Jack Lowden, Aneurin Barnard and Harry Styles were added to the list shortly after.[5][6] Cillian Murphy joined the following month.[7] James D'Arcy, Barry Keoghan and Tom Glynn-Carney were included in the line-up later that May.[8][9]

Filming

Principal photography commenced on 23 May 2016 in Dunkirk, France; production will proceed in the Netherlands, the United Kingdom and Los Angeles.[10] The film is being shot on a combination of IMAX 65mm and 65mm large format film stock.[1]

Music

By January 2016, composer Hans Zimmer had already begun working on the score.[11]

Release

In September 2015, Warner Bros. set the film for a 21 July 2017 release.[12]
