Last week, we reported that Matthew McConaughey was circling Christopher Nolan‘s upcoming sci-fi film, Interstellar. Nothing is known about the film other than it’s “a heroic interstellar voyage to the furthest reaches of our scientific understanding.” Today, the Star Tribune (via CHUD) reports that McConaughey told them, “I’m confirming.” He wouldn’t say anything beyond that, and I’m sure all of the actors who sign on will have the super-strict NDAs that come with joining a Nolan project.
McConaughey has entered a new phase in his career where he’s taking challenging and interesting roles, and I’m excited to see what he’ll bring to the project. The actor is currently filming the HBO anthology drama series True Detective with Woody Harrelson, and recently wrapped shooting on the AIDS drama, The Dallas Buyers Club. He’ll next be seen in theaters turning in another great performance in Jeff Nichols‘ Mud. Interstellar opens on November 7, 2014. Filming is set to begin this summer.
