Wormhole Plot Confirmed for Nolan's 'Interstellar' as Shooting Starts

Briefly: Paramount has released a press release today announcing the start of production/filming in Canada on Christopher Nolan's Interstellar, his new sci-fi movie starring Matthew McConaughey, Anne Hathaway and Jessica Chastain. Their memo confirms most details already known, from cinematographer Hoyte van Hoytema to casting including Michael Caine, Ellen Burstyn and Topher Grace. However, they also include a slightly longer synopsis that confirms a plot element: "The new script chronicles the adventures of a group of explorers who make use of a newly discovered wormhole to surpass the limitations on human space travel and conquer the vast distances involved in an interstellar voyage." This is not a spoiler, as it's the official synopsis that will be everywhere from now on. We'll keep you updated leading to November 2014.

The only other worthwhile information to note from the press release (via ComingSoon) are a few tidbits of details. "The production will travel the globe and utilize a mixture of 35mm anamorphic and IMAX film photography to bring to the screen a script based on the combination of an original idea by Nolan and an existing script by Jonathan Nolan, originally developed for Paramount Pictures and producer Lynda Obst." In addition, "renowned theoretical physicist Kip Thorne is consulting on the film as well as serving as executive producer." Thorne's theories about wormholes, time travel and alternative dimensions were key inspirations in the sci-fi script. Nolan is also re-teaming with production designer Nathan Crowley, editor Lee Smith, visual effects supervisor Paul Franklin and composer Hans Zimmer. The voyage has begun.

      I have somehow always pictured the wormhole would be in space. Am I wrong?!
      • heller
        You are wrong, because in the stargate mythology they can open a wormhole pretty much anywhere the device is placed on, in real life, well lets not talk about that, we havent opened one yet.
      • dawko
        I imagine that they will send a spaceship with a crew into the wormhole somewhere in the space...
