“Army of the Dead” breakout Schweighofer joins Nolan’s $100mln “Oppenheimer”

Matthias Schweighofer, the 41-year-old German actor, voice actor, film director and producer, has welded himself in the cast of Nolan’s much-hyped nuclear bomb movie “Oppenheimer,” enriching a film further which already has handful of stars including Emily Blunt, Robert Downy Jr., Matt Damon, Florence Pugh, Josh Hartnett, Rami Malek, Cillian Murphy and Kenneth Branagh among others.

Nolan’s Oppenheimer, which has a budget of $100 million, had casted Cillian Murphy in the title role as Robert J Oppenheimer, the scientist who had been one of the crucial figures in the United States’ Manhattan Project back in the days of World War II and had invented the atomic bomb.

Oppenheimer is set to release on July 21, 2023, a time-period which had been conventionally reserved for Christopher Nolan films in the past. More importantly, the movie has been set to drop in to the big screen just two weeks before the nuclear strike on Hiroshima.

Nevertheless, although Schweighofer joins the cast of “Oppenheimer,” it remains unknown the role he will be playing. Universal, in tandem, has not commented over the issue while being asked.

It is anticipated that the Universal will distribute Oppenheimer across the globe and initially release the movie in domestic box office in the Northern America.

Along with Nolan, the movie will be co-produced by Emma Thomas alongside Atlas Entertainment’s Charles Roven. Oppenheimer’s storyline will be chronicled in accordance with a Pulitzer prize-winning book American Prometheus: The Triumph and Tragedy of J.
