Everyone wondered what he would do after TDKR, now we know! Originally to be directed by Spielberg before he pulled out, Nolan will now direct sci-fi film Interstellar with the script written by his collaborator and brother Jonah.

The project involves time travel and alternate dimensions in a story that sees a group of explorers travel through a wormhole. The script is based on scientific theories developed by a Kip Thorne, a theoretical physicist, a gravitational physicist and astrophysicist at Caltech.
Sounds very interesting to say the least!

Confirmed.

Warner Bros. and Paramount are teaming up to produce and release "Interstellar" on November 7, 2014. The project has a script from his longtime collaborator and brother Jonathan Nolan and will deal with time travel and alternate dimensions, telling the story of a group of explorers who go through a wormhole.

Even though it sounds huge I think this film will be much much smaller than it sounds, mainly because it really isn't that far away and they've just started re-doing the script. TDKR was written quite far in advance as was Inception. Nolan has said he wants take a different direction after the Batman films. He hasn't made a bad film yet IMO so I can not wait!

The plot looks great and they have a director Nolan. They just some writrers jonathan nolan, david goyer and need a cast to fit the story very well. Makes us all wonder who be great to cast in Interstellar.

Very true some of the actors who worked in his other films could end up playing roles in nterstellar. It be great to see different actors work with Nolan and give other actors to a chance to work for Nolan. There must be loads of actors and actresses who love a chance to be in a film directored By Christopher Nolan.

Michael Caine recently said that he will be in Nolan's next film no matter what it is. Seemed quite serious don't think it was a joke.

I don't mind if he uses the same actors. They are good actors. As long as Tom Hardy and Joseph Gordon-Levitt are in it I'm happy (also Bale, Cillian Murphy and Marion Cotillard can all appear in it as well )

Sure, the supporting cast may include some of the usual suspects, but I'd expect the main leads to mix things up a bit. DiCaprio, for instance, isn't a Nolan regular, and neither is Hugh Jackman or Guy Pierce (I know I'm going back a bit here).

It's okay to collaborate again with one or two every now & then, but I feel he needs to spread his wings a bit and trust his own ability to find & work with new actors.

Plus I felt TDKR was the first time I was watching a Nolan film and wondering whether he was on his game. It was a pretty lacklustre effort I thought.

I hope he goes back to making something fresh and snappy again.

There were definitely some moments in TDKR that was very un-Nolany from sloppy editing, really obvious continuity errors to really poor exposition/dialogue.

It was a world away from the tightly plotted and pitch black Dark Knight but luckily the scale, acting, story and sheer ambitiousness of the film outweighed the poor for me.

For some reason even though it sounds like Interstellar will be full of big ideas I get the feeling it will be quite a small film.

Anna Hathaway is close to signing up to appear in Interstellar alongside main lead Matthew McConaughey.

Matthew McConaughey. I've only ever liked him when he's played a lawyer.

I'm glad he's finished with all the Batman malarkey. These are the kind of films he should be making.

As much as Matthew McConaughey has been on the ball recently, can't picture him in space. And given it was to be directed by Speilberg, I can't see it being as personal as other posters think it might be.

Poster has been released for Nolan's Interstellar.

Interestingly the main cast is noted as Matthew McConaughey, Anne Hathaway, Jessica Chastain, Bill Irwin, Ellen Burstyn and Michael Caine.

No mention of Matt Damon, Casey Affleck, John Lithgow, Topher Grace or Wes Bentley. I imagine they must have very small roles in the film.
