Christopher Nolan, director of the last three Batman movies, has announced his new project! Christopher will reportedly direct “Interstellar” a twisty new science-fiction based on a script by his younger brother, Jonathan Nolan.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Nolan signed on after months of negotiations.
If “Interstellar” sounds familiar, that’s because you have a great memory. The film was first reported on back in 2006, when Steven Spielberg was attached to direct; Jonathan Nolan came on to write the screenplay in 2007. As late as 2010, the idea was still in play for those two to collaborate.
According to the initial reports, “Interstellar” was based on “a scientific theory by Kip S. Thorne, a Caltech physicist and expert on relativity. His theory that wormholes exist and can be used for time travel intrigued Spielberg, who attended a Caltech workshop on the subject with Thorne and other scientists.” Per THR, that logline has basically remained the same: The film will follow a group of scientists who travel through a wormhole into another dimension.
“Interstellar” would be Nolan’s first post-Batman project. The director is set up as a producer on “Man of Steel,” and had previously shot down the idea of directing “Justice League” for Warner Bros. Obviously no casting has been announced yet, but don’t be surprised if names like Tom Hardy, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Leonardo DiCaprio, Marion Cotillard, Christian Bale and Michael Caine get mentioned as possible stars, if only because of their prior relationships with the director.
I already love it, say no more. Christopher Nolan is one of those directors that I’ll see whatever he’s putting forth. No matter what. Love him!
