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?
