Pattinson and John David Washington (‘Ballers,’ ‘BlacKkKlansman’) will play the two male leads, while Debicki has the female lead. There is also an older male co-starring role that has not been cast yet.

As for fake news, the film will be not be a romantic thriller in the vein of Alfred Hitchcock’s ‘North By Northwest’ and Nolan’s ‘Inception.’

However, it is still unclear whether or not there is truth to the previous crew announcements:

  • Cinematographer Hoyte van Hoytema (‘Interstellar,’ ‘Dunkirk’)
  • Production designer Nathan Crowley (‘Dunkirk,’ ‘First Man’)

Further, filming could begin this June.

Warner Bros. will release the film on July 17, 2020.
