After his brilliant string of performances last year brought him thisclose to an Oscar nomination, Matthew McConaughey seemed guaranteed to move on to bigger things than ever-- and now, that first big thing may have come along. Deadline reports that Christopher Nolan has offered McConaughey the lead role in Interstellar, the project he's set up as his first effort since the conclusion of the Dark Knight trilogy.

Jonathan Nolan, Nolan's brother and frequent collaborator, has been developing the project since 2007, when Spielberg was set to direct it, and only earlier this month, after reshaping the script to include one of his own ideas, did the elder Nolan sign on to direct his brother's script.
