Christopher Nolan's new film confirmed and dated
How is Christopher Nolan following up The Dark Knight Rises? We've got the answer...
If you had Christopher Nolan down in the sweepstake to direct the 24th James Bond film, then you can cross him off your list now (although it was never really likely to happen, in truth). In fact, if you had him linked to any of the vacant seats on big blockbusters, then the same applies. Because for his follow up to The Dark Knight Rises, it's been announced that Nolan will be making a movie called Interstellar.
Based on a screenplay by his brother Jonathan, Nolan has rewritten the script and will be directing the film, of which very little is known thus far. We do know that it's a science fiction space adventure, and when word first broke of the project in January, The Hollywood Reporter described it as involving "time travel and alternate dimensions, and [it] sees a group of explorers travel through a wormhole". Steven Spielberg was originally set to make the film.
The film will be a co-production between Paramount Pictures and Warner Bros (for that read: it won't be cheap), with the former distributing in the US, and the latter around the world.
Furthermore, a release date for Interstellar has been announced. It will be in cinemas, and on IMAX screens, on November 7th 2014. When we find out more about it, we'll let you know...
