Tenet: John David Washington opens up about potential sequel
With the theatrical release of Christopher Nolan’s Tenet in full swing, Golden Globe nominee John David Washington has finally opened up about returning for a potential sequel. In a recent interview with Esquire, when asked about the sci-fi film’s ending, Washington immediately expressed his excitement for the possibility of doing a Tenet sequel in the future!
“In my mind, that’s a yes!” Washington said. “We will be doing this again, we’ll see you in a couple of years. In reality, I don’t know. Chris does what he wants. Maybe he has something that he’s developed for years that he wants to do next, maybe he’s been inspired by something else he sees and wants to do that, I don’t know. I hope we get to do it again, I hope we get to explore more, because I think we found something really unique.”
Even though the film’s ending sure does set up the story for a potential sequel, the chances of Nolan making a follow-up is somehow slim because the acclaimed director isn’t very known for making sequels to his previous films such as Inception, Interstellar and Dunkirk. The only sequels he has ever made were for The Dark Knight trilogy, which is expected for the superhero genre.
Tenet is an international espionage thriller filmed across seven countries. John David Washington (BlacKkKlansman) stars, with a supporting cast that includes Robert Pattinson (Good Time), Elizabeth Debicki (Widows), Dimple Kapadia (Fugly), Aaron Taylor-Johnson (Avengers: Age of Ultron), Michael Caine (The Dark Knight Rises) and Kenneth Branagh (Dunkirk).
Armed with only one word—Tenet—and fighting for the survival of the entire world, the Protagonist (Washington) journeys through a twilight world of international espionage on a mission that will unfold in something beyond real-time. Not time travel. Inversion.
The director first made an impact in 2001 with his indie film Memento. His next film, Insomnia, was also a modest hit. but it wasn’t until Batman Begins hit theaters in 2005 that Nolan became a box office force in his own right. The Prestige was Nolan’s last movie to gross under $200 million worldwide. His other films include The Dark Knight, The Dark Knight Rises, Inception, Interstellar, and Dunkirk.
