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!
Someone with a cell phone or crappy video camera caught this clip of ‘The Dark Knight Rises’ which is currently being filmed in England!
For fans of the franchise (myself included) this just wets my appetite for more!
Shot in Wollaton Hall in Nottingham, England — the stand-in for Wayne Manor — the blurry camera footage captures Christian Bale as Bruce Wayne confronting Anne Hathaway as Selina Kyle. Rain (or, hose water) pours down as the two talk, and soon Kyle leads Wayne away.
What it means, well, no one’s quite sure. But at least we now know what Wayne Manor looks like from the front, and that Batman and Catwoman have a plain clothes confrontation.
As for Hathaway’s Catwoman costume, sources recently told Hollywoodlife.com: “Anne’s outfit is more tactical, like the comic book, than the previous Batman movies,” a source very close to the costume design told the website. “She will definitely be wearing the goggles and it’s going to be less sexy than Halle Berry and Michelle Pfeiffer’s Catwoman costumes. She’s going to look more like a robber… But fan boys shouldn’t be worried. This costume is going to be form-fitting enough to make Anne look smoking hot.”
Also joining in the film will be Joseph Gordon-Levitt as a Gotham detective, Marion Cotillard as Miranda Tate, Tom Hardy as Bane and, of course, Gary Oldman back as Commissioner Gordon.
Warner Brothers announced yesterday that Diane Lane has been cast in the upcoming Christopher Nolan-produced, Zach Snyder-directed Superman. She’ll play Martha Kent, the Kansas farmer who finds Superman as a baby, and raises him as her own.
Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary Pictures announced today that Oscar®-nominated actress Diane Lane will play Martha Kent, the only mother Clark Kent has ever known, in the new Superman movie to be directed by Zack Snyder.
Snyder stated, “This was a very important piece of casting for me because Martha Kent is the woman whose values helped shape the man we know as Superman. We are thrilled to have Diane in the role because she can convey the wisdom and the wonder of a woman whose son has powers beyond her imagination.”
Lane will star with Henry Cavill, who was recently announced as the new Clark Kent/Superman.
According to French newspaper Le Parisien, the deal was made over the weekend in Paris.
Marion will be joining other ‘Inception’ cast members in the new Batman. Already attached are Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Tom Hardy.
No word on what role Marion will play.
Considering it was announced last month that Marion is pregnant, I’d be interested to see how this will all work out. Are they going to wait for her to give birth – then begin filming? Will they try and hide her pregnancy? Seems like odd timing.
