The casting derby has been completed, the very vague plot synopsis finalized, and the real work is finally ready to begin. Christopher Nolan's Interstellar, which is looking like the most ambitious original sci-fi project in a market that's full of them, has finally started production
Interstellar is due for release on November 7, 2014, which puts Nolan and his team on a pretty short timeline to assemble what sounds like a special effects-heavy effort, complete with Nolan's customary stunning IMAX photography. Feel free to place your bets on when we'll actually know what role any of these people are playing in the film
Wes Bentley, still most famous for his monologue about that plastic bag in American Beauty, is lining up a significant enough stream of blockbusters that we might start remembering him for something else. Following up on his appearance as Seneca Crane in The Hunger Games last year, Bentley has now booked a role in Christopher Nolan's Interstellar; according to The Hollywood Reporter, he's the final member of the cast to get locked in place
Details about the story are slim at this point, but it's been said that the movie will follow a team of explorers who travel through a wormhole to another dimension. Jonathan Nolan, Christopher's brother, wrote the original screenplay, which Christopher rewrote and merged with pre-existing idea he had when he came aboard to direct.
As you might guess, a bunch of extras are included with the set as well. There will be two brand-new featurettes, one of them about the impact of the trilogy and one of them, unbelievably, with Christopher Nolan and Superman director in conversation. Though you probably don't have to go far to find people who were influenced by The Dark Knight, the first featurette includes interviews with the likes of Guillermo del Toro
It's been clear since the final moments of The Dark Knight Rises that Bale's Bruce Wayne was done with Gotham and super heroics in general, and though Man of Steel made reference to Wayne Industries, it had no explicit ties to Nolan's version of the Dark Knight. Henry Cavill is a new Superman, so he was getting a new Batman in the future… right?
Character actor Bill Irwin has built a long career of out strong supporting roles since making his first appearance back in 1980 (in Robert Altman's Popeye, no less). And it would seem that his years of work caught the eye of director Christopher Nolan, as the filmmaker has just cast the actor in his next film.
While Christopher Nolan, Jason Voorhees and Eric Cartman may seem like three disparate icons of pop culture, they all definitely have at least one thing in common: they’re cash cows. And while Regular Joes like you or me may never have to make a business decisions based around the director or the two fictional characters, Warner Bros. recently did - and they’re remaining firmly in Nolan’s camp.
And even though the film isn’t set to be released for another year and a half, Zimmer announced to Collider that he will indeed be composing the film’s score. Take a few seconds to say, “I knew it!” while you pump your fist up and down.
Most of us would say that Inception is the closest thing we'd ever see to a Christopher Nolan James Bond movie, but in fact the real deal might but happening too. The Daily Mail is reporting on "informal talks" between Nolan and Bond producers Barbara Broccoli and Michael G. Wilson about Nolan taking over Bond 24.
The director and the actor first paired up in 2005 when Caine played Alfred Pennyworth in Batman Begins. But not only did veteran character actor reprise that role in both Batman sequels, he also starred in Nolan's in-between movies, The Prestige and Inception. So it's completely without shock that we report the following news.
ery little is known about the story and the site gives no information regarding how Chastain will fit into the plot, but what is known is that the film will deal with the science of wormholes and their potential use for time travel, as theorized by Caltech physicist Kip S. Thorne.
Hoyte Van Hoytema, who served as DP on acclaimed films such as Let The Right One In, The Fighter and Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, has been selected as Nolan's cinematographer for Interstellar. The new film, which is set to star Matthew McConaughey and Anne Hathaway...
The news at Paramount's Cinema Con presentation tonight in Las Vegas that Nolan would be shooting a "significant" portion of Interstellar using IMAX cameras was not terribly surprising for anyone who has followed his career. The news that Michael Bay will also be using the cameras for the upcoming Transformers 4 was a bit more of a shock
After working side by side for more than a decade, Christopher Nolan and Wally Pfister are going their separate ways-- for now, at least. Pfister is embarking on his directorial debut, assembling the cast for the secretive sci-fi project Transcendence, while Nolan is moving on to his first post-Batman project… the secretive sci-fi project Interstellar. We would expect Pfister to have pretty similar taste to Nolan after working together for so long
