This project might just be Nolan's first outing outside the Warner Bros. setup. Nolan, who has been associated with the Hollywood giant since the 2002 film, Insomnia, is rumoured to move out of the collaboration, and this has piqued the interests of other studios, including Sony, Universal, and Paramount.
