Nearly six years ago, director Steven Spielberg was lined up to take on Jonathan Nolan's sci-fi script Interstellar, a story based in scientific theories by Caltech astrophysicist Kip Thorne that involved time travel, alternative dimensions and more familiar tropes as a group of explorers travel through a wormhole. However, no progress has been made on that project until now. THR says The Dark Knight trilogy and Inception filmmaker Christopher Nolan is looking at his brother's script as his next directing gig, and he will also produce the project through his Syncopy banner for borth Paramount Pictures and Warner Bros. It's not clear whether Spielberg is still involved in some capacity (especially since his own sci-fi film Robopocalypse is now postponed indefinitely), and he could always end up producing the film with Nolan. Either way, having the Nolan brothers team up on another sci-fi project sounds like just what the doctor ordered. »
