Mackenzie Foy is known to Twilight fans for playing Renesmee, the child of Bella and Edward, in The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2. Now she’s got another role in a major film, as TheWrap reports she’s in final talks to join the cast of Interstellar for director Christopher Nolan.
As this is a Nolan movie, there’s no info on who she’ll play, but she joins a cast that includes Matthew McConaughey, Anne Hathaway, Jessica Chastain, Michael Caine, Bill Irwin and Casey Affleck.
The movie revolves around a journey into outer space that pushes humanity’s knowledge of science and technology. The plot is reportedly based on the scientific theories of Kip S. Thorne, who believes that wormholes actually exist and can be used for time travel.
Christopher Nolan is directing from a screenplay he co-wrote with his brother, Jonathan Nolan. Shooting will start in a couple of months time, with a November 2014 release date already set.
