McConaughey to star in Chris Nolan’s “Interstellar”?

March 28, 2013

Now that he’s done with The Dark Knight trilogy, Christopher Nolan will be tackling science fiction for his next project, Interstellar. Word is the acclaimed writer-director is courting Matthew McConaughey to take on the male lead role in the Paramount/Warner Bros. co-production. The name of the character is Cooper, and there’s no word on whether McConaughey has or will sign on yet.

Interstellar, which has a release date of November 7th, 2014, was originally written by Chris’ brother Jonah for Steven Spielberg (who was originally attached to direct). The script was inspired by physicist Kip S. Thorne and his theory on wormholes and time travel. When Chris Nolan signed on to direct earlier this year, he also began writing his own script that merged with Jonah’s. Interstellar follows “a heroic interstellar voyage to the farthest borders of our scientific understanding.”

I’ve never been a big McConaughey fan so I don’t really know what to think.  Ever since watching THE TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE: THE NEXT GENERATION, I’ll never look at him the same way again.
