The Playlist bring word that Matt Damon has joined the cast of Christopher Nolan’s ‘Interstellar’ in a small, undisclosed role. The character, like all of the roles in the film, is being kept under wraps, but sources close to the actor tell the outlet that he’ll only be shooting on the project for two weeks in Iceland (the entire shoot is scheduled for four months). Alongside Damon, the top-notch cast of ‘Interstellar’ also includes Matthew McConaughey, Anne Hathaway, Jessica Chastain, Bill Irwin, John Lithgow, Casey Affleck, David Gyasi, Wes Bentley, Mackenzie Foy, Timothée Chalamet, Topher Grace, David Oyelowo, Ellen Burstyn, and Michael Caine.
‘Interstellar’ will be released in IMAX and 35mm theaters on November 7th, 2014. Paramount Pictures will distribute in North America, Warner Bros. Pictures internationally. Directed and co-written by Christopher Nolan (‘Inception,’ ‘The Dark Knight’ Trilogy), the production will travel the globe and utilize a mixture of 35mm anamorphic and IMAX film photography to bring to the screen a script based on the combination of an original idea by Nolan and an existing script by Jonathan Nolan, originally developed for Paramount Pictures and producer Lynda Obst. The new script chronicles the adventures of a group of explorers who make use of a newly discovered wormhole to surpass the limitations on human space travel and conquer the vast distances involved in an interstellar voyage.
Production Weekly are reporting that filming on ‘Warcraft’ is officially slated to begin on January 13th in Vancouver. Earlier this year it was announced that Duncan Jones is making the jump to big-budget tentpole movies, signing on to helm ‘Warcraft,’ Legendary Pictures’ live-action adaptation of Blizzard Entertainment’s video game universe ’World of Warcraft. ’World of Warcraft,’ one of the most popular multiplayer online role-playing games out there, is part fantasy, part science fiction and — depending on the game you’re playing — includes elements such as dragons and orcs, zombies and werewolves, and aliens and spaceships.
At present, Legendary Pictures are keeping the ‘Word of Warcraft’ script, written by Charles Leavitt (Blood Diamond, The Seventh Son), under wraps. Duncan Jones made his feature debut writing and directing 2009′s ‘Moon,’ the awesome indie sci-fi drama that starred Sam Rockwell and cost around $1 million to make. He followed that up with 2011′s ‘Source Code,’ a time travel thriller that starred Jake Gyllenhaal and cost around $35 million to make. ‘World of Warcraft’ is expected to have a budget north of $100 million. With Jones on-board as director my hopes are high for this one! A 2015 release is being eyed for the film.
