‘Hereditary’ star Alex Wolff joins director Christopher Nolan’s latest film project, ‘Oppenheimer’.
Reported from the Hollywood Reporter, Wolff will play a character that is still undisclosed. However, the actor is confirmed to soon be following other players who have already filmed the last few weeks.
The 24-year-old actor made his debut through the children’s film ‘The Naked Brothers Band: The Movie’ in 2005. He then began to star in several films and television series. His acting career soared when he starred in ‘Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle’ and played Peter Graham in the horror film ‘Hereditary’. Last year, Wolff starred in M. Night Shyamalan’s film ‘Old’ and Michael Samoski’s ‘Pig’.
Meanwhile, Oppenheimer’s film production has reportedly been going on since early March. The film takes place in New Mexico, California, and New Jersey. Universal Pictures and Syncopy have also released the first look on February 23, which features Cillian Murphy as J. Robert Oppenheimer, the scientist who invented the atomic bomb.
‘Oppenheimer’ is adapted from Pulitzer Prize-winning novel, ‘American Prometheus: The Triumph and Tragedy of J. Robert ‘Oppenheimer’ by Kai Bird and Martin J. Sherwin. The book is a biography of J. Robert Oppenheimer.
Besides Cillian Murphy, Emily Blunt, and Alex Wolff who recently joined, ‘Oppenheimer’ also stars a series of other stars, including Matt Damon, Robert Downey Jr., Kenneth Branagh, Florence Pugh, and Rami Malek.
Christopher Nolan fills the director’s chair as well as the scriptwriter for this film. He also produced the film along with Emma Thomas and Charles Roven.
‘Oppenheimer’ is slated to premiere on July 21, 2023.
