In a recent interview with Elle magazine at the premiere of ‘Ain’t Them Bodies Saints,’ Casey Affleck revealed that he’s the latest addition to the cast of Christopher Nolan’s ‘Interstellar.’ When the magazine asked Affleck about what else he’s working on, the actor answered that he is “going to work on a Chris Nolan movie in the fall.” Affleck joins the increasingly impressive cast of Matthew McConaughey, Anne Hathaway, Jessica Chastain, Michael Caine, and Bill Irwin. Interstellar is set to start filming this August. Source: Nolan Fans.
Jonathan Nolan wrote the original script, which has since been merged with one of Christopher Nolan’s original sci-fi ideas. The director is also producing with Emma Thomas and Lynda Obst, while Jordan Goldberg will executive produce with Kip Thorne, who serves as a technical consultant on the project. While details on the film are currently few and far between, ’Interstellar’ will reportedly depict a heroic interstellar voyage to the furthest reaches of our scientific understanding. The story is said to be based on scientific theories developed by Thorne, a theoretical physicist, a gravitational physicist and astrophysicist at Caltech.
