Whether you like or hate him, you’ve got to admit that Christopher Nolan knows how to make a good looking film, with a decent story to boot. Plot holes be damned! With Batman behind him, and Superman hitting cinemas soon, Nolan is now once again tackling his own project in the form of Interstellar.
And he’ll have some familiar company along for the ride in the form of composer extraordinaire Hans Zimmer. So what’s the film actually all about then?
According to AICN, the next Nolan film will be about more than just wormholes and bleeding edge science theories. An older draft of the script hints at a future Earth, “in a time where crops are dying, food is scarce, governments and nations have collapsed, NASA is gone and the 20th Century is to blame. A mysterious rip in Space Time opens up and it is up to the remnants of the now extinct NASA organization to explore it and offer up a chance at salvation for Earth.”
Of course, things get more complicated according to AICN, but who knows what that complication really is? Only Nolan knows. Nolan has already cast a few of the folks for his film, in the form of Matthew McConaughey, Jessica Chastain, Michael Caine, and Anne Hathaway.
As for Zimmer, he confirmed that he’d be doing the soundtrack for the film, according to a question posed to him by Collider:
I wrote something…and I’m writing that. So, yes, we have started.
That’s a hell of a head start for Zimmer, as Interstellar will only be out next year November.
