Batman Begins launched a new stage in his career back in 2005, followed by the awesome The Dark Knight. And then we found out that he’d made those two films first to show himself worthy of a big budget, and we were hit by the immensity that is Inception.
Fast forward two more years, and we see The Dark Knight Rises taking a billion dollars at the box office around the world.
As you can imagine, there’s every reason to look forward to his next film.
THR are reporting that he’s now in talks with Paramount and Warner Bros. to direct and produce Interstellar.
And to make things even sweeter, the script has been penned by Nolan’s brother and frequent collaborator, Jonathan Nolan.
“The story involves time travel and alternate dimensions, and sees a group of explorers travel through a wormhole. The script is based on scientific theories developed by Kip Thorne, a theoretical physicist, gravitational physicist and astrophysicist at Caltech.”
Steven Spielberg had previously been attached to direct and produce, and it remains unclear as to whether Spielberg will be staying on in a producing capacity.
According to their sources, negotiations have been going on for months, and are being described as very complex. The project has been set up at Paramount, but would be a joint production between Paramount and Warner Bros., which is where Nolan’s Syncopy production company is based.
You’d better believe we want this one to work out, because it would be amazing to see Christopher Nolan take the director’s chair on another script from his brother, Jonathan, particularly with a premise like this one. Here’s to hoping we’ll have some good news to share on this soon.
