Interstellar, the ambitiously mind-bending next film effort from director, Christopher Nolan will apparently feature another one of the director's favorite repertory players. Legendary actor, Michael Caine has hopped on board this film, which will take things far beyond his three-film stint picking up Batman's underwear in Wayne Manor to the far reaches of space.
While exact details on the plot for this supernatural space thriller are as mysterious as the cosmos itself, it will apparently involve the elements of wormholes and time travel, reflecting research of famous physicist, Kip Thorne. However, what is clear, is that Caine will add distinction to a cast of already distinct names like Anne Hathaway, Matthew McConaughey, and Jessica Chastain. However, knowing Nolan, especially when it comes to his cerebral thrillers like the groundbreaking Inception, Caine and Hathaway may not be the only esteemed actors returning to the fold by the time this film's casting process is said and done. Indeed, you don't have to be much of a fortune teller to guess that people like Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Tom Hardy, Cillain Murphy, and maybe even Ellen Page probably have a copy of the script waiting in their inboxes.
With this increasingly-impressive cast and a cool setting that will be new territory for its visionary director, it's no wonder that Interstellar was the object of a rare multi-studio deal between Paramount Pictures and Warner Bros. to split co-production and co-distribution duties between the the domestic and international releases. It's about as surefire of a hit as they come, despite the nonexistent details.
Interstellar heads out to prove that some men just want to watch the world burn...through reentry when it hits theaters on November 7, 2014.
