The odds of this happening are akin to successfully navigating an asteroid field, but it’s just so fun we had to pass it along. One site is reporting that Warner Bros. has offered Christopher Nolan the opportunity to direct Ready Player One, Ernie Cline‘s pop culture-infused sci-fi adventure, adapted by Zak Penn.
Recently, we reported that Penn’s script had been turned into the studio. If they like it, the timing is right to go out to directors. However, you have to think that Warner Bros. offers Nolan every single movie they have. If he wanted to direct Justice League, Wonder Woman, another Batman movie or The Hobbit, he could. So the question is, if this happened at all, would Christopher Nolan ever direct this film? Also, what does the offer say about the state of the property?

Joseph Gordon-Levitt is without a doubt one of the most interesting and distinct voices in modern Hollywood. Yes, he’s a great actor and has done some truly awesome films. He has also worked with many wonderful filmmakers, is sought after by even more and also happens to be one himself. He’s already directed one feature, Don Jon, is on the short-list for every big hero role out there, and is the founder of a crowd-sourced media company called HIT RECORD where people can contribute to not only a TV show, but short films and more, all online.
Levitt did a Reddit AMA to promote the first season of HITRECORD ON TV coming to DVD. During the event, he touched on a bunch of interesting topics. He discussed wanting to appear in Quentin Tarantino’s Django Unchained, how good he thinks Rian Johnson’s Star Wars Episodes VIII and IX are going to be, the latest on his DC/Vertigo adaptation, Sandman, if he thinks he’ll be in another Batman movie, what makes Christopher Nolan a good director, a possible 3rd Rock from the Sun reunion and more.

For as many fans as Christopher Nolan has, he has plenty of detractors as well. Who knew some were so closely tied into him, though. In a new interview Christopher Priest, who wrote the novel The Prestige which Nolan adapted, had lots to say about the director and his movies. First of all, he does like The Prestige as a movie but admits the two only met when Nolan finished the film. Since though though, Priest thinks Nolan has gone downhill, going so far as to call his Dark Knight Trilogy “boring and pretentious.” And that’s just part of it.

Christopher Nolan‘s Interstellar features a pretty powerful message about love, but it’s not all sweetness and light. It doesn’t shy away from the darker side of humanity, particularly in a third-act twist that puts our heroes in jeopardy.
In a new interview, Nolan discusses that divisive scene, laying out the logic and motivations that led to the big moment. We’re purposely being vague here because we’d hate to be the jerks who ruin the movie, so let’s just slap up a big fat spoiler warning and head to the jump where we can talk freely. Read More »
The tagline for Christopher Nolan‘s Interstellar is “Mankind was born on Earth. It was never meant to die here.” In all the discussions about the film post release, that idea has kind of been left in the dust (pun intended). The environmental issues in the film have been overshadowed by the science of the space sequences, and the sound in the theater. Hoping to focus attention back on that aspect of the film, Nolan and his team are doing a project to celebrate the planet we live on.
Nolan and his actors are asking fans, filmmakers and everyone in between to participate in a time capsule project. An Interstellar documentary, if you will, that will result in a film that showcases “memorable and inspiring moments of today to give future generations a way to remember where they came from.” David Brodie and Angus Wall are producing the film with Nolan curating the entries.

Major Spoilers For Interstellar
The finale of Interstellar has been quite a point of contention among film fans. Some intrinsically understand and decipher what Matthew McConaughey‘s character, Coop, experiences. Others are just totally in the dark and can’t grasp what’s happening once he goes into the black hole. And a very few actually know exactly what’s going on. No matter what, it would be nice to understand exactly what is happening once Coop begins floating around at the end of the film.
Enter Neil deGrasse Tyson, who has already had lots of interesting things to say about Christopher Nolan‘s film.

Get a look at the Interstellar comic after the jump. (But be warned there are massive spoilers for Interstellar ahead.)

From the first screenings of Christopher Nolan‘s Interstellar, you could hear the controversy coming. Audiences in different cities complained about the sound in the film. Nolan’s mix, or something in the presentation, resulted in several lines of dialogue – seemingly important lines – being blown out by sound effects and music. Was this an artistic choice by Nolan? Or was it the fault of individual theaters?
/Film reported on the sound issues, and as the story spread over days, no one would comment. Not Nolan’s camp, not Paramount Pictures and not IMAX. The only update was from one theater in upstate New York, which blamed Nolan for the sound. Now, finally, Nolan has responded to the controversy. Does he accept blame? Does he even think there’s a problem? Read Nolan’s quotes about the Interstellar sound problems below. Read More »
