Anne Hathaway will reteam with Christopher Nolan to star in the director’s upcoming sci-fi film, Interstellar. Since Nolan is all about the secrecy, all we know regarding the plot is that it’s about “a heroic interstellar voyage to the furthest reaches of our scientific understanding.” Matthew McConaughey has already signed on, but Deadline, who reported Hathaway’s casting, doesn’t have any details on either role. Hathaway is the latest actor who has clearly developed a strong working relationship with Nolan. She joins Christian Bale, Marion Cotillard, Tom Hardy, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and Michael Caine for the group of actors who have worked with the direction on more than one film (I don’t count Gary Oldman since it’s the same role in multiple pictures). Caine has been in every Nolan film since Batman Begins, and I hope there’s a role for him in Interstellar simply because he’s a great addition to every film.
Hit the jump for a refresher on Hathaway’s other projects.
Hathaway has a slate of indies coming up as she comes off her recent Oscar win for Les Miserables. She’s currently set to star in a modern retelling of Taming of the Shrew, the romance Song One, and Lynne Shelton‘s dark comedy, Laggies. She was attached to star in Steven Spielberg‘s Robopocalypse, but Spielberg took the project back to the drawing board, so Interstellar provides the nice blockbuster picture in the actress’ schedule.
