Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar—the project he took over after Steven Spielberg moved on, in which explorers who travel into a wormhole launch “a heroic interstellar voyage to the furthest borders of our scientific understanding”— is coming together at a relatively quick clip. Yesterday, we noted that Nolan is already discussing Stanley Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey as an influence, and earlier in the month we reported that Matthew McConaughey has signed on as the film’s lead. Now it appears Anne Hathaway will join the cast.
Coming off a killer 2012 in which she shone in less than perfect films—Hathaway was one of the bright spots in Nolan’s uneven The Dark Knight Rises, and won an Oscar for her performance in the poorly-directed Les Miserables—the actress is reportedly in talks to reteam with Nolan as a co-star in Interstellar. And, because this is a Christopher Nolan movie currently in pre-production, we know absolutely nothing else about it.
Interstellar, which was written by Nolan and brother Jonathan Nolan, is set for a November 7, 2014 release date. Only another year and a half of endless speculation and over-analysis to go, guys!
