While director Christopher Nolan and cinematographer Wally Pfister have a long standing relationship that stretches all the way back to Nolan's 2001 directorial debut Memento, it sounds like the filmmaker is taking on a different collaborator for his upcoming WWII drama Dunkirk. While many suspected that Wally Pfister would be coming aboard, Nolan has instead decided to go with his Interstellar director of photography Hoyte van Hoytema. The movie shoots this summer.
Dunkirk was announced in late December as director Christopher Nolan's next project. He has since been busy prepping the true-life tale. Composer Hans Zimmer, who created all of the music for the Dark Knight trilogy will be back to score the adventure drama. And the secondary cast is being played by heavy hitters such as Tom Hardy, Mark Rylance and Kenneth Branagh. The main actors in the film will be mostly unknowns, which are still in the process of being cast. »
Having already recruited German composer and good-luck charm Hans Zimmer, Christopher Nolan is set to welcome back Swedish cinematographer Hoyte van Hoytema (Let the Right One In, Spectre) for World War II drama Dunkirk.
First collaborating for Interstellar in 2014, Nolan and Van Hoytema’s working relationship was almost born out of necessity, given that the director’s reliable director of photography Wally Pfister – who has served as Dp on every Nolan film since his debut feature film Following – opted to forego the cerebral sci-fi film in favor of directing fellow genre piece, Transcendence.
But considering that Hoyte van Hoytema had by that stage attracted the attention of the Academy through his work on Her and Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, Nolan landed on a winner. Seemingly keen to keep the ball rolling, The Film Stage reports that the pair will collaborate once again for Dunkirk, swapping futuristic science fiction and wormholes »

Hoyte van Hoytema has certainly been making a name for himself in Hollywood lately. With blockbuster films like "Spectre" and "Interstellar" under his belt, the Swiss-born cinematographer is now poised to continue his foray into big-budget moviemaking by working with Christopher Nolan yet again for "Dunkirk." The news was first reported by The Film Stage. Before "Interstellar," Nolan had exclusively worked with cinematographer Wally Pfister, save for his directorial debut, "Following." The departure of Pfister (who went on to direct the lackluster Johnny Depp film, "Transcendence") led many to speculate as to who the next director of photography would be for the meticulous and demanding Nolan. The British director chose none other than the BAFTA-nominated Hoytema to work the camera for "Interstellar." The cinematography, which found Hoytema using »

When Christopher Nolan went into outer space for "Interstellar," it was without longtime cinematographer Wally Pfister, who had been with the director since "Memento," but turned to a directing career of his own starting with the unfortunate "Transcendence." Nolan's choice to lens his ode to the galactic power of love was Hoyte van Hoytema, who had quite the resumé behind him with "The Fighter," "Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy," and "Her." And it seems Nolan was pleased his work on "Interstellar."

As Christopher Nolan prepares for an early summer shoot of his World War II drama Dunkirk, he’s busy filling out his cast and crew. With composer Hans Zimmer returning, Mark Rylance, Kenneth Branagh, and Tom Hardy are filling out the ensemble and many unknown newcomers are still waiting to be cast. Set to shoot in IMAX 65mm and 65mm large-format film, many have wondered if longtime collaborator Wally Pfister would return or perhaps he’d reteam with Interstellar‘s Hoyte van Hoytema.
It looks like it will be the latter, as the announcement that Hoytema has deservedly joined the American Society of Cinematographers includes a note that he is “currently prepping an untitled feature for director Christopher Nolan, with whom he first collaborated on Interstellar.” Following his work on Spectre, Her, Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, Let the Right One In, and more, we look forward to how he pulls »
