Actor Alex Wolff has joined the cast of Christopher Nolan’s Oppenheimer. A biopic on J Robert Oppenheimer, one of the fathers of the atom bomb, stars Cillian Murphy as the titular famed physicist. The details of who Wolff will play are not yet revealed.
Oppenheimer revolves around the theoretical physicist who helped in developing the atomic bomb during World War II, but later found his loyalty to the USA questioned by hawkish government officials.
Shooting on Oppenheimer has been underway in New Mexico for a few weeks now. Based on the book American Prometheus: The Triumph and Tragedy of J Robert Oppenheimer by Kai Bird and Martin J Sherwin, Universal Pictures has kept July 21, 2023 release date for the film.
