Harry Styles’ acting career in full effect, no solo album yet
Harry Styles is of course currently taking a break from his singing career, and starting an acting career (unlike most of his One Direction counter-parts that have been making solo records). Harry’s first big acting break is not too shabby either, it’s directed by famed director Christopher Nolan. The movie is Dunkirk and it’s a World War 11 themed movie that also stars none-other-than Batman alumni Tom Hardy and Cillian Murphy, and is set to hit theaters July 21, 2017.
Dunkirk is an upcoming British epic action-thriller film written, co-produced and directed by Christopher Nolan. The story is set in World War II during the Dunkirk evacuation. Filming began on 23 May 2016 in Dunkirk, France and is shot on IMAX 65 mm and 65 mm large format film stock by cinematographer Hoyte van Hoytema.
Principal photography commenced on 23 May 2016 in Dunkirk, France; in the months following, production will proceed in Urk, Netherlands, Swanage and Weymouth in Dorset, United Kingdom and Los Angeles, United States. Filming in Dunkirk took place in the same location as the real historical evacuation. In the course of shooting, Dunkirk operates under the codename “Bodega Bay”.
The film is being shot on a combination of IMAX 65 mm and 65 mm large format film stock. Nolan reconditioned actual warships for the shoot, including the French Navy destroyer Maillé-Brézé, and reportedly spent US$5 million of the budget on a vintage aircraft so as to attach it with IMAX cameras before crashing it on-screen. Avoiding the use of computer-generated imagery, the production used cardboard cut-out props of soldiers and military vehicles to create the illusion of a large army.
