Speaking with Total Film via Syfy, he said:

I kid you not, I read this screenplay more times than I have ever read any other thing I have ever worked on. It was like doing the Times crossword puzzle everyday, I would imagine. Except the film and the screenplay didn’t you or need you to be an expert.”

When asked if he plays the antagonist in the movie, he replied:

Given the nature of it, as Chris to some extent sort of reinvents the wheel here, a lot of people start engaging with ’s character in both expected ways… so you might expect me to be an antagonist… but then the story doesn’t quite follow what you might expect as the story plays out.

In the playing of it, and in the scenes, he keeps upturning or playing forward and backward, our expectations of what the character should be.

So my conversations with Nolan about the character were constant because the character’s evolution was not set. It was a series of constant surprises.”
