Christopher Nolan Looks to the Future for ‘Interstellar’

With the Dark Knight trilogy behind him, Christopher Nolan is looking toward the future—literally. The director's newest film will be Interstellar, based on a screenplay written by Nolan's brother, Jonathan. 

This time-travel twister was originally planned as a Steven Spielberg project back in 2006. He balked, however, when the opportunity to direct Robopocalypse presented itself. Despite that project being near death, Spielberg—Oscar nominated this year for Lincoln—won't return. 

Instead, it's Nolan who's taking the reigns. Plot details are scant, but Interstellar is said to involve time travel through worm holes. He's not yet a lock to direct (though reports sound promising), but regardless, Nolan will be heavily involved, and teaming with his brother once again means a screenplay and film on par with The Prestige, Memento, or The Dark Knight isn't out of the question.

At this time, Interstellar has no release date or cast. Chris Nolan is working on incorporating an original idea of his own into his brother's work. The film will be co-financed by Paramount and Warner Bros.
