Himesh Patel, star of The Beatles-inspired movie "Yesterday,"  is in negotiations to join Christopher Nolan's thriller "Tenet."

Naturally, we have no idea what role he'll play, since all we know about the project is it's "an action epic evolving from the world of international espionage."

A 60-second trailer recently showed in theaters only, focusing on John David Washington with the tagline: "Time has come for a new protagonist."

"Tenet" stars Robert Pattinson, Elizabeth Debicki, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Kenneth Branagh and Nolan regular Michael Caine. And It may or may not involve time travel. (Given Nolan's love of playing with timelines, this wouldn't be the least bit surprising.)

Patel also costars in the British period drama "The Aeronauts," which is in theaters on December 6 and will debut on Amazon Prime on December 20.
