Has Steven Spielberg Picked Jonah Nolan’s INTERSTELLAR as His Next Film?

Steven Spielberg is attached to no less than five promising film projects.  From the long-anticipated Abraham Lincoln biopic to a rewrite of William Shakespeare’s The Taming of the Shrew by Diablo Cody, the acclaimed director has his pick of the litter.  One of those films, Interstellar, now appears to be in the pole position to take home the prize of being Spielberg’s next .  Vulture is reporting that William Morris Endeavor has added Jonah Nolan, screenwriter (along with older brother Christopher) of The Prestige and The Dark Knight.

It has been long known that Jonah Nolan has been working on the script to Interstellar, a sci-fi movie originally written by Caltech theoretical physicist Kip Thorne, but if Spielberg is likely to pick that script to direct then Nolan’s star-power is going to get a considerable boost.  Add in the likelihood that this summer’s Inception is poised to be a big success and it is easy to see why WME was so eager to sign Nolan away from United Talent Agency.  Short of confirmation by Spielberg himself, we can’t be sure what is going to happen with Interstellar, but WME’s move seems as good an indication as any that Spielberg may be getting ready to blast off.
