It’s been known for a while now that Christopher Nolan’s next project will be a biopic about the father of the atom bomb – American theoretical physicist J. Robert Oppenheimer. Cillian Murphy was confirmed to star in a titular role, and now the movie added two more super-stars.
As reported by Deadline, MCU’s star Robert Downey Jr and Oscar-winner Matt Damon joined the cast of Christopher Nolan’s new feature film. It is known that Nolan’s films are usually filled with some of the biggest stars, and this one is certainly no different. Deadline previously also reported that Emily Blunt is in talks to join the cast.

Following his disagreement with Warner Bros about the simultaneous release in theaters and on HBOMax during the pandemic, Nolan severed ties with the company and moved to Universal Pictures.
Written and directed by Christopher Nolan, and distributed by Universal Pictures, Oppenheimer will land exclusively in theaters on July 21, 2023.
