Briefly: Christopher Nolan has brought a couple more actors into his already impressive cast for the sci-fi adventure Interstellar. David Oyelowo (Lincoln, Jack Reacher, The Butler) and David Gyasi (Cloud Atlas), who worked together in Red Tails, have taken roles in the new film. The cast also includes Matthew McConaughey, Anne Hathaway, Jessica Chastain, Casey Affleck, Topher Grace, Michael Caine, Wes Bentley, Mackenzie Foy, John Lithgow, Ellen Burstyn, Bill Irwin and Timothee Chalamet.
This is where I recap the other spare details we know about the film, which depicts “a heroic interstellar voyage to the furthest borders of our scientific understanding,” and features “explorers [who] travel through a wormhole.” Christopher Nolan and his brother Jonathan Nolan scripted the current draft. Composer Hans Zimmer and cinematographer Hoyte Van Hotyema are also working on the picture.

Every time an actor signs on to Christopher Nolan‘s new film Interstellar, we have to write basically the same piece, because we still know very little about the film. There just aren’t many details to give out.
So: Wes Bentley is the latest actor to take a significant role. But in announcing the casting THR says he’s also the last major piece of the puzzle needed to assemble the sci-fi film about time travel, an alternate dimension, and a wormhole in space. Bentley has a “meaty supporting role,” says the trade. He’ll appear alongside such talents as Matthew McConaughey, Anne Hathaway, Jessica Chastain, Michael Caine, Casey Affleck and Topher Grace.

Briefly: Add one more to the cast of Christopher Nolan‘s new film, Interstellar. Topher Grace is in talks to join the cast, which also includes Michael Caine, Anne Hathaway, Matthew McConaughey, Jessica Chastain, Casey Affleck, Ellen Burstyn, John Lithgow, Bill Irwin, Timothee Chalamet, and Mackenzie Foy. (Grace actually just finished another movie with Burstyn, The Calling.)
Even as we know more and more about the cast, but the core of the film remains shrouded in relative secrecy. All we’ve got is what we’ve known for months, that the film depicts “a heroic interstellar voyage to the furthest borders of our scientific understanding,” and it features “explorers [who] travel through a wormhole.” Christopher Nolan and his brother Jonathan Nolan wrote the script, originally commissioned for Steven Spielberg and inspired by the theories of physicist Kip Thorne. Composer Hans Zimmer and cinematographer Hoyte Van Hotyema are also working on the picture.

From 2005-2012, Christopher Nolan reshaped the superhero world with his Dark Knight trilogy. Starting with Batman Begins, exploding with The Dark Knight and climaxing with The Dark Knight Rises, the director deconstructed one of our favorite superheroes in human terms, turning the whole filmed superhero genre on its head. As fans wait for another filmmaker to tackle the Caped Crusader, Warner Bros. is gearing up to celebrate Nolan’s achievements on the home market.
Last year it was revealed the third quarter of 2013 would see the debut of a Dark Knight Trilogy Ultimate Collectors Edition. A Polish website now has images that appear to be exactly that. Warner Bros. Home Video has yet to confirm or deny their legitimacy but these look so good, we figured they’re worth your time. Read More »

Christopher Nolan sure knows how to pick ‘em. Like most of his movies, Interstellar boasts an all-star lineup that combines old Nolan favorites with exciting Nolan newcomers. The Dark Knight Rises‘ Michael Caine and Anne Hathaway represent the former, while Matthew McConaughey, Jessica Chastain, Bill Irwin, and now Casey Affleck are among the latter. The Gone Baby Gone star confirmed his casting in a magazine interview published this month. Hit the jump for details.

Almost like a kid trading baseball cards, Warner Bros. reportedly swapped Jason Voorhees and Eric Cartman for Christopher Nolan. Nolan’s next film, Interstellar, is set up at Paramount Pictures and will be co-produced by Warner Bros. Some insiders wondered how the rival studios came to an agreement over this massive movie and now, The Hollywood Reporter has the answer. Warner Bros. had to relinquish partial rights they held to a new Friday the 13th sequel, as well as a second South Park movie, to Paramount in order to get a piece of Nolan’s November 2014 sci-fi film.
The one catch is Paramount would have to make those sequels in the next five years or Warners gets their stake back. Read More »
Briefly: Each time we get the chance to pass along a bit of info about Christopher Nolan‘s next film, Interstellar, it is typically just a name, as the details of the sci-fi script are being kept quiet. Matthew McConaughey, Anne Hathaway, Michael Caine, and Jessica Chastain are in the cast, for example, but we can’t tell you much about any of their characters.
We know that Nolan’s long-time cinematographer Wally Pfister won’t shoot the film, due to his directorial commitment on Transcendence, but that Hoyte Van Hoytema (Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy) will reportedly shoot instead. Nolan and Van Hoytema will reportedly use IMAX-format cameras for a significant portion of the film — more even than Nolan and Pfister used for The Dark Knight Rises.
Now there’s one more confirmed piece of the puzzle, and as with some of the cast it won’t really come as a surprise. Collider talked to composer Hans Zimmer about his work on Man of Steel, and asked about Interstellar. “I wrote something…and I’m writing that, he replied. “So, yes, we have started.”
Insterstellar, which depicts “a heroic interstellar voyage to the furthest reaches of our scientific understanding,” opens on November 7, 2014.
