While we nervously await more detailed news, let's revisit some of his greatest works, such as the 2014 wonder Interstellar, the amazing Inception and the mind-frak that was Memento, among others.

Click through and discover our top 8 Christopher Nolan movies.

8. The Dark Knight Rises

The Dark Knight Rises
We love the Dark Knight trilogy, but of the three films, we think The Dark Knight Rises is the weakest. And, honestly, it starts our countdown simply due to the escalating quality of the films that come ahead of this final chapter in Christopher Nolan's career.

7. Insomnia

Insomnia was Nolan's follow-up to Memento and although it didn't grab audiences by the neck like his previous one did, it was still pretty stellar. And seeing him get that wicked performance out of Robin Williams? Priceless!

6. Batman Begins

Batman Begins
Batman Begins began the wider audience love affair with Christopher Nolan that still carries through to this day. People wondered how you reboot a franchise that started so brilliantly with Tim Burton more than a decade prior. With Christopher Nolan, that's how you do it. And by Nolan casting Christian Bale... well, the rest is history.

5. Interstellar

Nolan swung for the fence with Interstellar, a film that pushes the boundaries of what film can accomplish. And although he hit many home runs with the flick, there were a couple of swings and misses too along the way. If nothing else, it has us beyond excited to think about what this filmmaker is going to do now that his superhero movie career is behind him and he's free to, frankly, do whatever he wants.

4. Inception

Nolan's Batman break movie was Inception and to this day it has fans marveling at the levels of mystery and mastery that was that cinematic Rubik's Cube!

3. The Prestige

The Prestige
The Prestige suffered from what could have been a classic Hollywood calamity. It arrived around the same time as another period piece movie about magicians, But, The Illusionist had nothing on Nolan's The Prestige. The mystery, the powerhouse performances and a movie that had as many twists and turns as a magician's show still to this day leaves us breathless.
