Online commentators have expressed the disapproval they feel for the reported actions of Christopher Nolan. It was released that he was the Interstellar director planning to use a priceless World War II plane valued at $5 million in his latest movie, Dunkirk. The report claims that the plane is scheduled to crash and ultimately be destroyed. However, there has been no official confirmation that this story is true. It was originally reported by IndieRevolver’s Jay Carlson, and has been attributed to an anonymous source.
Previous media reports were inaccurate since the ship in question does not date back to World War II. It was built in the 1950s, and was first utilized in October of 1953. Despite this slight fact change, the decision to use this ship would still demonstrate a strong commitment to authenticity by the director. It seems likely that Nolan would jump at the chance to use a real World War II artifact in his upcoming film. The second part of the rumor is harder to believe. It seems a unlikely that Nolan would destroy such an artifact on purpose. The negative publicity alone would be a deterrent, especially for a man who wants people to come see his film.
The official press release said, “Principal photography on the epic action thriller Dunkirk is underway in Dunkirk, France. Christopher Nolan (Interstellar, Inception, The Dark Knight Trilogy) is directing Dunkirk from his own original screenplay, utilizing a mixture of IMAX and 65mm film to bring the story to the screen. The production will shoot in France, Holland, the UK and Los Angeles.” The film will open with hundreds of thousands of British and Allied troops being surrounded by the enemy combatants. They are trapped on the beach with the enemy all around and the sea at their backs. It depicts an impossible situation as the enemy quickly moves in.
