http://www.comingsoon.net/news/movienews.php?id=98707In development for some time, the sci-fi tale Interstellar looks to have a found a new director in Christopher Nolan. The Hollywood Reporter brings word that Nolan is interested in developing the project, taking over the reins from the previously-attached Steven Spielberg.
Production on Interstellar would be a joint effort between Paramount Pictures and Warner Bros. and would see Nolan again tackling a screenplay from his brother, Jonathan Nolan (The Prestige, The Dark Knight Rises)
The plot is said to have been informed by a scientific theory by Kip S. Thorne, a Caltech physicist and expert on relativity. His theory suggests that wormholes exist and can be used for time travel.
As a director, I think Nolan is a perfect fit for Interstellar. I just wish that somebody other than Jonathan Nolan works on the script is this goes into production. Jonathan seriously needs to work on his dialogue. It's the biggest weakness in Nolan films.
