Christopher Nolan’s New Film Is Smaller Than Anticipated

Christopher Nolan has already finished his next film, but it’s not quite what you would normally expect.

The Nolan film to follow Interstellar is… a documentary. A short documentary about stop-motion animation; however, that’s not the only thing unexpected about this project. We’ll also be able to see it sooner than expected, with its screening in New York City this August.

The film itself, titled Quay, is about Stephen and Timothy Quay, a pair of identical twins who worked together in stop-motion animation. These influential brothers, known for working on titles like In Absentia (2000), The Comb (1991) and Crocodiles (1986). It’ll first screen for a Quay Brothers retrospective in New York City, which Nolan himself is working on.

Quay Brothers

It’s interesting to see Nolan branch out into other forms of media, as this will be Nolan’s first documentary he’s directed. It would be cool to see him try even more adventurous things. Animated films, perhaps even working with the Quay Brothers???

Another thing to consider is what we heard about Nolan earlier this month.

So, the question at hand now is: was this ‘comprehensive draft’ for this documentary? Or has Christopher Nolan already have his sights set on his next projects?

Regardless, I’m looking forward to see this upcoming documentary, and whatever else Nolan comes up with.
