Hoyte van Hoytema is known for the films he has made with Christopher Nolan, such as Interstellar, Dunkerque or Tenet, his new work will be with Jordan Peele.

At the end of July of this year we knew the Jordan Peele’s new project, one of the greatest masters of horror cinema today. Nope, the director’s next film, announced his cast and showed us his first poster. It is now confirmed that the director of photography of the tape will be Hoyte van Hoytema.

The news has been made public through Kodak, who has thanked several cinematographers in a publication for choosing celluloid instead of digital for making their films. Precisely one of the names that appear in Kodak’s long list is Hoyte van Hoytema’s for the movie Nope.

Hoyte van Hoytema is a Dutch cinematographer who has surely seen several films. The director has worked on Her (2013), by Spike Jonze, in Specter 007 (2015) by Sam Mendes or in Ad astra (2019) by James Gray.

But the highlight of his career is in the work he has done with Christopher Nolan, for which he has been director of photography in multiple productions, such as Interstellar (2014), Dunkirk (2017), or Tenet (2020).

His work has earned him a nomination for Oscar for Best Cinematography by Dunkirk and three award nominations BAFTA for the best photograph for Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy (2011), Interstellar and Dunkirk.

Another of Hoyte van Hoytema’s next projects with Christopher Nolan will be the film Oppenheimer, a biographical tape about the physicist J. Robert Oppenheimer and his role as the developer of the atomic bomb.

Oppenheimer will be released in theaters on July 21, 2023, while Nope will land a year earlier, on July 22, 2022. From Nope We hardly know details about its plot, and the only visual references we have about the film are in the poster that was published a few months ago when it was announced.
