DP Hoyte van Hoytema is Reteaming with Nolan for 'Dunkirk' Next
Good news to report, Nolan fans! Nolan's new favorite cinematographer is coming back to work on his next film. Christopher Nolan is reteaming with Swiss cinematographer Hoyte van Hoytema for his next film currently titled Dunkirk, about the Allied evacuation from Dunkirk, France during the early part of WWII. This isn't surprising at all and it's exactly what we expected for this production, but this is the first time we've seen confirmation. The news is from a report on the American Society of Cinematographers (ASC) website via The Film Stage announcing that van Hoytema is a now a member of the ASC (he's also part of the FSF and NSC in Sweden and The Netherlands). Hoytema last worked with Nolan to shoot Interstellar.
An ASC Award nominee for Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, which also screened in competition at Camerimage, van Hoytema is currently prepping an untitled feature for director Christopher Nolan, with whom he first collaborated on Interstellar. His feature credits also include Spectre, Her, The Fighter and Let the Right One In.
Above is an excerpt from the ASC article mentioning his involvement in Nolan's next film. Ever since Wally Pfister move into directing, parting ways after shooting seven films, Christopher Nolan has been working with cinematographer Hoyte van Hoytema. Hoytema originally worked on Her, The Fighter, Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy and Let the Right One In before joining Nolan's crew. After filming Interstellar (with IMAX cameras) for Nolan, he went on to work on James Bond's Spectre for director Sam Mendes, and is now prepping work on Dunkirk. The original announcement for Dunkirk says that filming starts this summer, starring Tom Hardy, Kenneth Branagh and Mark Rylance (so far). It's set to arrive in theaters summer of 2017. We'll keep an eye out for more updates from here. Find van Hoytema's full filmography list on IMDb.
