INTERSTELLAR (2014): Michael Caine cast in Christopher Nolan Film

Michael Caine

Michael Caine joins Interstellar. Michael Caine has been cast in Christopher Nolan‘s Interstellar (2014). Michael Caine will be joined by co-stars Matthew McConaughey, Anne Hathaway (whose casting we reported on here: Interstellar (2014): Anne Hathaway joins Christopher Nolan Film), and Jessica Chastain in the film. Interstellar‘s script was written by Jonah Nolan.

On the evolution of Interstellar:

[It] was originally set up in 2006 by Steven Spielberg, when Paramount owned DreamWorks, and after Spielberg became intrigued by Caltech physicist and relativity expert Kip S. Thorne and his scientific theory that wormholes exist and can be used for time travel. Spielberg set Jonah Nolan to write the script, which made it easy for Christopher Nolan to come aboard after Spielberg left the project. After all, the Nolan siblings have a collaborative track record, with Jonah hatching the short story that became Christopher’s first hit Memento, and following that with two Batfilms and The Prestige. Christopher Nolan signed on in January to write a script that merged an original idea of his with the script that Jonah wrote.

On Interstellar‘s plot:

The ambition is a film that will depict a heroic interstellar voyage to the farthest borders of our scientific understanding.

An exploration of physicist Kip Thorne’s theories of gravity fields, wormholes and several hypotheses that Albert Einstein was never able to prove.

On the people behind the scenes:

Christopher Nolan and Emma Thomas are producing with Lynda Obst. Jordan Goldberg is joining as exec producer alongside Thorne, who’ll remain on as technical consultant.
