When last we reported on the sci-fi flick Interstellar, it was to tell you that Christopher Nolan (The Dark Knight trilogy) would be re-writing brother Jonathan Nolan’s script and was circling the director’s chair.  Now, Christopher Nolan has been confirmed as a director, but his partnership with brother Jonathan isn’t the biggest team-up news.  In a rare bit of cooperation by major studios, Paramount Pictures and Warner Bros. will team up to co-produce; Paramount will handle domestic distribution while WB goes international.  Legendary Pictures will not be involved, despite having backed The Dark Knight Trilogy and Inception.  Few plot details are available for the film, but it’s said to “depict a heroic interstellar voyage to the furthest reaches of our scientific understanding.”  We do know, however, that Interstellar is now slated for a November 7, 2014 release in IMAX.  Hit the jump for more.
