“A heroic interstellar voyage to the furthest reaches of our scientific understanding.” Intrigued yet? Christopher Nolan, of Inception and Dark Knight fame, recently revealed that his next project is the sci-fi film, Interstellar (previously set to be directed by Steven Spielberg.)All we know so far is that Matthew McConaughey is set to star and the movie will explore physicist Kip Thorne’s theories of wormholes, gravity fields and other cool-sounding space theories.
Don’t know who Kip Thorne is? Well, he’s an American theoretical physicist and apparently an expert in Einstein’s general theory of relativity. Oh, and he’s good friends with Stephen Hawking and Carl Sagan. Hmm, I wonder if there are enough numbers to make up his IQ!
Recently, Nolan was interviewed about the work of Stanley Kubrick and talked a little about the classic 2001: A Space Odyssey and its influences on Interstellar. You can read the Entertainment Weekly article here.
I’m excited. I think Nolan will do a fab job with a sci-fi movie (even if it ends up as a whole bunch of confusing theories with mind-minding visuals ala Inception). Now, we just have to wait about a year and a half for the movie to hit cinemas!
