New Info on Christopher Nolan’s INTERSTELLAR; Film Could Involve the Importance of Corn

     August 30, 2013


Details on Christopher Nolan‘s films are kept under lock and key until the marketing onslaught begins, but new info may have emerged regarding his new movie, Interstellar.  Previously, the logline only told us the story was about “a group of explorers who make use of a newly discovered wormhole to surpass the limitations on human space travel and conquer the vast distances involved in an interstellar voyage.”  Now, in an unexpected development, the reason for their exploration may involve corn.

Hit the jump for more.  The film stars Matthew McConaughey, Anne Hathaway, Jessica Chastain, Matt Damon, Bill Irwin, John Lithgow, Casey Affleck, David Gyasi, Wes Bentley, Mackenzie Foy, Timothée Chalamet, Topher Grace, David Oyelowo, Ellen Burstyn, and Michael CaineInterstellar opens November 7, 2014. [Possible spoilers ahead]

christopher-nolan[I personally don’t feel that the information below qualifies as a major spoiler, but some people treat spoilers like a livewire, and then get upset they’re singed by the livewire even though it was obvious they shouldn’t have touched it in the first place.  So if you don’t want to know what sounds like a minor plot detail that will probably be revealed by the studio down the line, stop reading this article]

Now that we’ve gotten that out of the way, the Fort Macleod Gazette [via JoBlo] is reporting the following:

Set in the future, the movie details the toll climate change has taken on agriculture, with corn the last crop to be cultivated. The scientists embark on a journey through a worm hole into other dimensions in search of somewhere other crops can be grown.

Oh, climate change.  Will you ever stop being a good source of inciting incident and social commentary?

The Gazette has also posted some unofficial set photos, but we won’t re-post them here because of copyright trolls and the studio will probably ask us to pull them down anyway.  All you need to know is the photos have McConaughey, Chastain, and Grace on set and there’s a dust storm in a small town.  In lieu of posting an image from the set, I will post this humorous comic strip from the Perry Bible Fellowship that involves corn:
