It’s Official: Chris Nolan’s ‘Interstellar’ Coming November 7, 2014

UPDATED: Paramount Pictures has officially found a slot for Interstellar, the next movie from Christopher Nolan: It will be released on November 7, 2014, smack in the middle of awards season. The date first mentioned when Paramount and Warner Bros announced a rare tie-up to co-produce the sci-fi pic. The cast has been shaping up for a while, with Matthew McConaughey, Anne Hathaway, Jessica Chastain and Nolan regular Michael Caine already aboard. Nolan and Emma Thomas are producing with Lynda Obst, and Jordan Goldberg is exec producing. Obst commissioned the original treatment and Steven Spielberg came aboard in 2006, when Paramount owned DreamWorks and after the filmmaker became intrigued by Caltech physicist and relativity expert Kip S. Thorne and his scientific theory that wormholes exist and can be used for time travel. Spielberg set Jonah Nolan to write the script, which made it easy for Christopher Nolan to come aboard after Spielberg left the project. The ambition is that Interstellar will depict a heroic voyage to the farthest borders of our scientific understanding. There is one other film that has set that date: Disney’s 3D-animated Big Hero 6, based on the Marvel comic property.
