Briefly: The collaboration between director Christopher Nolan and actor Michael Caine is moving towards its tenth year, the two having first worked together on Batman Begins, shot in 2004 and released in 2005. Caine was in all three of Nolan’s Batman films, and played roles in the director’s “in-between” films The Prestige and Inception.
Now Caine has been confirmed for Interstellar, the sci-fi picture that also features Matthew McConaughey, Jessica Chastain, and fellow Batman vet Anne Hathaway. The film was originally scripted by Jonathan Nolan, and depicts “a heroic interstellar voyage to the farthest borders of our scientific understanding.” Steven Spielberg set the project into motion a few years ago after being inspired by physicist Kip Thorne. Christopher Nolan has been reworking his brother’s script before shooting. Interstellar is set for release on November 7, 2014. [Deadline]
