Warner Bros. has confirmed the release of director Christopher Nolan's next movie on July 21, 2017. This will be his first project since "Interstellar" that was released last November and grossed $673 million worldwide.

Variety has reported that the untitled film will be distributed by Paramount Pictures domestically and by Warner Bros. on the international roll-out.

All three movies in Nolan's Dark Knight series – "Batman Begins", "The Dark Knight" and "The Dark Knight Rises" – were handled by Warner Bros. along with his 2010 sci-fi hit "Inception". The trilogy garnered $2.45 billion worldwide while "Inception" grossed $800 million.

This will be 45-year-old director's 10th feature film after his debut in 1998 with "Following".

The latest project of Nolan was a short film about stop-motion animation masters and twin brothers titled "Quay" that was based on the life of twin brothers Stephen and Timothy Quay.

Warner Bros. has all the rights regarding the upcoming project, but it gave no details except for the release date.

Nolan produces his movies through Syncopy label that he co-founded with his wife Emma Thomas. Apart from directing, he had screenwriting credits on the Dark Knight trilogy, "Inception", "Interstellar" and 2006 drama "The Prestige".

Nolan directed "Interstellar" in early 2013, co-writing the script with his brother Jonathan Nolan while producing the movie in coordination with Thomas and Lynda Obst.

It will be fourth movie title to be dated for 21 July, 2017 following Universal's "Pitch Perfect 3", EuropaCorp's "Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets" and an untitled Blue Sky animation project from Fox.
