Netflix Film Chief Wants to Release Christopher Nolan's Next Movie

Netflix film chief Scott Stuber wants to work with Christopher Nolan to distribute his future movies.According to Variety, Netflix's recent deal with Steven Spielberg's production company Amblin has "given Stuber hope that he might be able to lure Christopher Nolan" to release his next movie on the streaming platform, even though Nolan has always been a strong advocate for the big screen theatrical experience. Stuber says he'll do "everything" he can to change that."If and when [Nolan] comes up with his new movie, it's about can we be a home for it and what would we need to do to make that happen," Stuber said on the prospect of teaming up with Nolan. "He's an incredible filmmaker. I'm going to do everything I can. In this business I've learned you need to have zero ego. I get punched and knocked down and get back up."[ignvideo url=”https://www.ign.com/videos/2020/07/02/a-brief-history-of-time-in-christopher-nolan-movies”]Spielberg officially entered the streaming wars in June when Netflix announced it had reached a deal with Amblin that will see the company produce at least two films a year for its library for an unspecified amount of years. While most of these projects will only be produced by Spielberg, it is possible that movies directed by the filmmaker will also land on the streamer.Prior to this partnership, Spielberg had voiced his opinions on the differences between streaming and theatrical releases, sharing his belief that original movies produced for streaming platforms should not be eligible for Oscar competition. Spielberg later clarified that he did not attempt to prevent Netflix from winning Oscars at that year's ceremony.Nolan reinforced his distaste for streaming films last year when he voiced his concerns over Warner Bros.' decision to move its entire 2021 film slate onto HBO Max. He said the studio didn't understand what they were losing by dismantling their traditional release model in favor of moving to HBO Max, which he described as "the worst streaming service."

His last film Tenet underperformed at the box office last year, grossing just $45 million before theaters were permanently closed again due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.[poilib element=”accentDivider”]Adele Ankers is a freelance writer for IGN. Follow her on Twitter.
