Anne Hathaway is Reteaming with Christopher Nolan for 'Interstellar'

April 9, 2013

Anne Hathaway and Christopher Nolan

Despite landing some fresh blood in the form of Matthew McConaughey for the new sci-fi film Interstellar, director Christopher Nolan will have at least one familiar face from his filmography. Deadline has word that The Dark Knight Rises star Anne Hathaway is currently finalizing a deal to star in the film with Nolan directing a script written by his brother and The Dark Knight trilogy collaborator Jonathan Nolan. Unfortunately, details are still just as sparse as before with most of the information on the project coming from vague details that were around when Steven Spielberg was going to direct the project. Read on!

For those just joining us, the film is said to be based on scientific theories by Caltech astrophysicist Kip Thorne that involved time travel, alternative dimensions and more familiar tropes as a group of explorers travel through a wormhole. McConaughey plays a guy named Cooper, likely part of the team, and we imagine Hathaway is another scientist of some sort as well. She's a fantastic addition to the film and surprised many with her turn as Catwoman last year, so this is great news. We know this is a big project because it's a co-production between Paramount Pictures and Warner Bros., and that doesn't happen very often. Shooting is supposed to begin this year with release planned for November 2014. Good news?

    Sick to death of her.

      Then don't follow news pertaining to her, take a break from Hathaway news for a while.
    • Someone is jealous.

        Everyone's a little jealous that it came true.
    • So Anne Hathaway is a little histrionic, she's a freaking actress. Marlon Brando was a freaking weirdo, Jack Nicholson always looks like a jerk to me, but who the hell cares, they are phenomenal performers. Personally, I say who cares what she is like off screen, that stuff is for people who are caught up in the personal lives of movie stars because their own are so boring. All that matters is that she is a fantastic and versatile actress. For god's sake, you should show interest in an actor based on their talent, and not pick apart their personal weaknesses, they're not your freaking friends, they are artists.

    Ah, good ole Nolan...I'm not a huge fan of his but he does good work, Prestige being his best imo. "Intersteller" seems to be going in the right direction casting wise. McConaughey will be brilliant! As will Hathaway, I'm sure. Its been fun seeing her grow as an actress.

      That's like saying "Ferrari makes fast cars"
      • Xerxexx
        Not sure I follow...are you saying that Nolan is amazing or something else...?

          Guest , who doesn't have enough guts to put a name behind his post , is just trying to bust your chops . , You CAN acknowledge that people in the entertainment industry do good work , without being a fan of them OR their genre ....Or maybe you just don't wanna join the lovefest all the others have with that person . For example , for me that's Kobe Bryant . not a fan of him or his sometime whining , but he can ball ....
          • Xerxexx
            Indeed. He is talented, can't deny that. I'm just not a huge fan.
          • thechillerdewd
            amen to that! he's good, but overrated! Memento/prestige are my personal favorites. on a side note: yes yes and yes to Mat. McConaughey!
          • Cody W
            Im a nolanite, I just feel like his hardcore fans and "overratedness" makes up for the fact the guy is never recognized at awards shows
          • Xerxexx
            True, true.
  • Ben
    Wasn't Spielberg originally going to direct this?
    • Read the last line of the first paragraph.
    • Chris Groves
      Yep, he was circling it for years...but as they say "sh!t or get off the pot"...he kept moving from one film to the next, each one NOT being Interstellar. I like the idea of the Nolans working together on this one.
  • Chris Groves
    I've become quite a big fan of Anne Hathaway. Her and McConaughey are promising casting choices. Now if only we can get Christoph Waltz in this thing, I'll be INSANELY stoked!
    She was successfully initiated in the Nolan Cabal!!!
  • Chris Groves
    Why are Pacific Rim and Interstellar my two most anticipated movies of the next two years? Because both are huge blockbuster films and are NOT adaptations or sequels! Not that I have anything against adaptations and sequels...but I love original ideas getting the massive blockbuster treatment as well.
    • Guest
      Pacific Rim is an original idea?
      • Chris Groves
        As in, not an adaptation or sequel. No idea is technically 'original' any more.
      E-L-Y-S-I-U-M. G-R-A-V-I-T-Y.
      • Chris Groves
        They are not in the same league as Pacific Rim and Interstellar. Elysium has like a $90 million budget, Gravity probably doesn't have a huge budget(and it's a rather 'small scale' story that is more intimate)...while Pacific Rim has a $200 million budget and Interstellar will likely have a budget in that same rang. Non adaptations and non-sequels that are among the MASSIVE productions rarely recent years the only films of that variety that we've really had were Avatar and Inception.
        • DAVIDPD
          Oh, you meant like grand scale? Yeah, than you are are spot on. But I meant more like anticipation of fucking amazing sci-fi features.
          • Chris Groves
            Oh absolutely, there have been/will be more than a few smaller scale and original films(sci-fi and otherwise) around, I mean, last year we had Looper which was a nice surprise.
          • DAVIDPD
            I think Abrams, Johnson, Jones, and Blomkamp represent a fresh new direction for sci-fi in the upcoming years. If they can make it popular again I will be happy.
          • Chris Groves
            They very much have already. Star Trek 09, Moon, and Avatar I think planted the seeds for a sci-fi resurgence. This year, we have stuff like Oblivion, Star Trek, After Earth, Man of Steel(Fringe, I know), Pacific Rim, Elysium, Riddick, and Gravity all coming...that's quite a few high-profile sci-fi productions.
