Ever since The Dark Knight Rises, we’ve been waiting to hear what Christopher Nolan would direct next. A few months ago it was revealed he was working on Interstellar, although at that point it wasn’t clear if it would be his next project, or indeed if he’d move on to another film.
Now he’s commited to the movie, with Paramount Pictures and Warner Bros. Pictures jointly announcing that Nolan will indeed make Interstellar, which will be co-produced and distributed by the two studios. They’re also set a release date, with the movie hitting cinemas on November 7th, 2014.
Nolan will direct and has been rewriting the script, based on his brother Jonathan’s original screenplay. And as this is Nolan, not much has been revealed about the movie, other than that ‘The film will depict a heroic interstellar voyage to the furthest reaches of our scientific understanding.’ It’s previously been revealed (back when Spielberg was interested in Jonathan’s script, that it was spawned from the ideas of theoretical physicist, gravitational physicist and astrophysicist Kip Thorne, with the story involving time travel, alternate dimensions and travelling through wormholes.
