Christopher Nolan addresses on-set chair ban that’s sitting well as Twitter meme
If you were not allowed to sit at work, would you work more?Film director Christopher Nolan believes the chairs encourage the set of an unproductive film, according to actor Annie Hathaway, who worked with Nolan on the 2012 Batman film The Dark Knight Rises.
Hathaway told Variety on Monday, “Chris doesn’t even allow chairs … and if you have chairs, people will sit, and if they’re sitting, they’re not working.” “He has these incredible films in terms of scope and ambition and technical prowess and emotion. It always comes under schedule and at the end of the budget. I think he’s doing something with the chair thing.”
On Tuesday, a representative for Nolan released a statement detailing the chairs on the filmmaker’s set.
“For the record, only those things are banned [Nolan’s] The sets are cell phones (not always successfully) and smoking (very successfully), “a Nolan spokesperson told Indiewire.” The chairs that Anne was referring to are the directors’ chairs around the video monitor, which is not a physical need. Chris chooses not to use his own but has never banned chairs from the set. Cast and crew can sit wherever and whenever needed, and often do. “
Nolan released his statement, however, as fans were already taken to Twitter with their own lively reactions to opposing views.
Bill Corbett, author and actor of Mystery Science Theater 3000, suggested a chair prank for Nolan.
Other fans suggested that the musical chair and restaurant seating could be a net shock to Nolan.

Till hereThe gig is on.
One film fan recalled Nolan’s previous films such as the Batman film The Dark Knight, Inception and Interstellar, and Memento.

Fans will have to wait to see how much their characters sit inside them..
