Christopher Nolan’s time-travel film ‘Interstellar’ to bow in 2014

Hey, Christopher Nolan fans: You only have to wait another year and a half to see your favorite director’s next venture. Co-distributors Paramount Pictures and Warner Bros. Pictures announced Friday that the “The Dark Knight Rises” director’s new film, “Interstellar,” will debut on Nov. 7, 2014.

Written by his brother, Jonathan Nolan, “Interstellar” is a time-traveling epic based on scientific theories developed by Caltech physicist Kip Thorne, who will executive produce the movie.

Though plot details are being kept under wraps, the film appears to represent a return to Nolan’s mind-bending cerebral pictures, such as 2010’s “Inception” or his initial break-out hit, “Memento.”

A start date and cast are yet to be announced.

Paramount will handle domestic distribution of the movie, while Warner Bros., which has partnered with Nolan on the majority of his films, will release “Interstellar” internationally.


Nolan and wife Emma Thomas will produce the picture through their Syncopy Films, which is housed at Warner Bros.

Steven Spielberg, who was initially attached to direct the movie, is no longer involved with the project. However, producer Lynda Obst and her production company will remain on board.

Nolan, best known for his Batman trilogy, is currently producing the upcoming summer flick “Man of Steel,” with Zack Snyder directing.
