Christopher Nolan in Talks to Direct INTERSTELLAR

     January 9, 2013


While you might know him from his directorial efforts in a little thing called The Dark Knight Trilogy, Christopher Nolan is set to tee up a new sci-fi picture which his brother Jonathan Nolan has written.  Titled Interstellar, Christopher Nolan will reportedly direct and produce the picture.  The basics of the plot involved a group of explorers traveling through a wormhole and deals with time travel and alternate dimensions.  The script is said to be inspired by the work of Kip Thorne, a physicist at Caltech.  Steven Spielberg was previously in the mix to direct the picture, but it looks like the Nolan brothers will reunite once again.  Hit the jump for more.

christopher-nolan-the-dark-knight-risesNews on Nolan being in negotiations to helm Interstellar comes via Heat Vision, after what is described as being a very complex deal-making process that has been underway for a number of months.  It’s unclear at this point whether Spielberg will have any involvement with the picture, though his schedule is considerably more open now that Robopocalypse has been shelved.  The deal is being set up at Paramount, though both Paramount and Warner Bros. will make the picture; Lynda Obst is attached to produce.

This should come as great news to Nolan fans, especially those who considered his original works to be the most rewarding of his career.  The layered storyline of Memento and the mind-bending concept of Inception could be but practice to what the Nolan’s have in store for Interstellar.  Considering the script is based off of the scientific theses of Thorne, who is a theoretical physicist, gravitational physicist and astrophysicist to boot, there’s no telling what level of brain-twisting we’re in for now that the Nolans get to play with wormholes and alternate dimensions.  I couldn’t be happier!
