While promoting the much-anticipated film Ain’t Them Bodies Saints, Oscar-nominated actor Casey Affleck revealed to ELLE Magazine that he has joined the cast of Christopher Nolan’s sci-fi epic Interstellar.
Affleck will be joining the recently announced Jessica Chastain, Matthew McConaughey, Anne Hathaway, and Michael Caine. It’s been reported that Christopher Nolan will be merging an original idea of his own with the script that his brother Jonathan Nolan had already written when Steven Spielberg was attached to direct.
The ambitious sci-fi project centers on a heroic interstellar voyage to the furthest reaches of our scientific understanding. The film will be co-produced and distributed by Paramount Pictures and Warner Bros. The film will be scored by Hans Zimmer (obviously) and will be shot by Let The Right One In and Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy cinematographer Hoyte Van Hoytema.
This is going to be all kinds of epic. Interstellar will be arriving in conventional and IMAX theaters on November 7th, 2014.
