Back in March, we learned that Christopher Nolan’s longtime cinematographer Wally Pfister would be making his feature directorial debut on an untitled thriller for Alcon Entertainment. In not exactly surprising news, it was announced today that Nolan and his producing partner/wife Emma Thomas will be executive producing Pfister’s film. Pfister has served as cinematographer on all of Nolan’s films except Following and he won the Academy Award for Best Cinematography for his stellar work on Inception. His non-Nolan features include Moneyball and The Italian Job. Though this will be his first feature film, Pfister has previously directed a few commercials.
Also unsurprising, given his partnership with Nolan, is the fact that plot details for the untitled feature are firmly under wraps. The screenplay comes from newcomer Jack Paglen and production is set to get underway this fall or early winter. Hit the jump to read the press release.
