Nolan’s return and new Lord of the Rings films starring Peter Jackson are Warner Bros. plans.

Warner Bros. executives Film Group Michael de Luca and Pamela Abdy spoke to Variety about the company’s strategy for its film direction. For example, representatives of the WB once again confirmed the departure from the simultaneous display of films in cinemas and streaming.


Highlights from the conversation:

  • Warner Bros. Pictures hopes to bring back Christopher Nolan, who left for Universal Pictures after the first decided to release new films simultaneously in cinema and “digital”

  • WB executives have already taken the first step – paying Nolan a seven-figure bonus for Tenet; after that, the director was engaged in post-production of “Oppenheimer” at Warner Bros.

  • Warner Bros. The Film Group plans to work more often with auteur filmmakers and even intends to give them bigger budgets; contracts have already been signed with M. Night Shyamalan and Baz Luhrmann, and the rights to a new film directed by the director “Barbarian” have been bought, cooperation with Alejandro Gonzalez Inyarittu is planned

  • Speaking of budgets for auteur cinema, Greta Gerwig received about $100 million for Barbie, the director had never worked with that kind of money before.

  • Plans for new films based on The Lord of the Rings are also in force – for this, WB even rolled up to New Zealand to restore relations with Peter Jackson so that he would take part in the production, at least in the status of a consultant

One of the recent significant decisions by Warner Bros. bosses. was the appointment of James Gunn and Peter Safran to lead DC Studios. Both are now actively involved in the rebuilding of the DC Universe.
