Until the Hollywood strike comes to an end, Christopher Nolan has declared that he will not engage in the production of another film.

Christopher Nolan has spoken out amid the ongoing Hollywood strike, stating that he won't commence work on a new movie until the action is settled.
The strike taking place has seen thousands of Hollywood actors down tools alongside writers as they seek better working conditions and a fairer share of profits from streaming services.

Not only this but as AI sweeps through the world, actors are seeking to protect their image rights so they don't lose work to digital replicas.

The UK premiere of the highly anticipated Oppenheimer was interrupted by the industrial action being called, as top actors such as Cillian Murphy, Matt Damon, and Emily Blunt left the event in solidarity.
The director of the movie, Christopher Nolan, told BBC News that he wouldn't work on another movie until the strike action had come to a conclusion.

"It's very important that everybody understands it is a very key moment in the relationship between working people and Hollywood," Nolan said.

He went on: "This is not about me, this is not about the stars of my film. This is about jobbing actors, this is about staff writers on television programs trying to raise a family, trying to keep food on the table."

Nolan added that the team behind Oppenheimer was fortunate that they managed to conclude their work before the industrial action was called.

The emergence of streaming platforms has changed how actors get paid for their work - as before they would often get payment each time the movie was rerun on TV.

Nolan explained that streaming services haven't "accommodated how they're going to in this new world of streaming, and a world where they're not licensing their products out to other broadcasters - they're keeping them for themselves".

The Dunkirk director added: "They have not yet offered to pay appropriately to the unions' working members, and it's very important that they do so. I think you'd never want a strike, you never want industrial action. But there are times when it's necessary. This is one of those times."
During the Oppenheimer premiere in London, Nolan said: "It's very important to bear in mind that there are people who have been out of work for months now, as part of the writers strike, and with the actors potentially joining - a lot of people are going to suffer."

Oppenheimer follows the story of J Robert Oppenheimer, a scientist credited with the creation of the first nuclear weapon.
