Being one of the top directors in Hollywood certainly means a lot of people want to work with you and Christopher Nolan is taking advantage of that, gathering an excellent cast for the upcoming Interstellar.
The latest to sign up, according to TheWrap, is John Lithgow, who joins the likes of Matthew McConaughey, Anne Hathaway, Jessica Chastain, Michael Caine, Bill Irwin, Casey Affleck, and Mackenzie Foy in the movie.
As always with Nolan, the plot details are deliberately being kept fuzzy, but it’s reportedly based on physicist Kip S. Thorne’s theory that wormholes actually exist and can be used for time travel. The movie is said to revolve around a journey into outer space that pushes humanity’s knowledge of science and technology. The secrecy around the project means we have no idea who Lithgow will play.
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.
