Briefly: It has been confirmed by the man himself that he's taking the role in Chris Nolan's next movie, Interstellar, a sci-fi interstellar voyage script written by Jonathan Nolan, based on physicist Kip Thorne's theories of gravity fields and wormholes. Matthew McConaughey told Star Tribune (via SlashFilm) in a phone interview that he will be taking the role. When asked about the offer, McConaughey simply told them: "I'm confirming." This is very exciting to hear following news of the offer, as I believe Nolan's Interstellar will be the pinnacle of the new sci-fi era, and McConaughey's casting harkens back to the brilliance that resulted in 1997's Contact. We'll be watching development closely building to its November 2014 release.
