At some point in the last few months, everyone decided it was time to pour some haterade on Anne Hathaway for some reason. It's gotten to the point where the New York Times even did an entire article about it for some reason. Frankly, we don't get it -- she's an excellent actress, who has had some great success, which we suppose makes some people jealous or whatever -- but, Christopher Nolan doesn't read internet gossip and trash and realizes talent when it's in front of him.

And so, he's reteaming with Hathaway for his upcoming sci-fi flick "Interstellar," with a deal set to be inked soon. Of course, that's all there is with details remaining secret for now, but she is the first of Nolan's roster of previous players who's coming on board the movie, joining the already-cast Matthew McConaughey. Originating from a long developing script by Jonathan Nolan, with Nolan pouring his own special sauce on it with a rewrite, "Interstellar" will deal with time travel and alternate dimensions, telling the story of a group of explorers who go through a wormhole.  

We'll see how this all turns out on November 7, 2014. Until then, what other Nolan regulars do you want to see back in action? [Deadline]

    YES! Great choice, Maestro.

    I don't really get the hate, but then again I haven't watched that many interviews or awards shows. She's definitely talented, that's all I care.

    I'd rather watch Hathaway than some other big-name-oscar-winners (Julia Roberts, Sandra Bullock, Reese Witherspoon, Halle Berry, Renee Zellweger).

    BOOOORING. But at least she is trying to up her resume since winning the Oscar. Is she the female lead?? I wish Charlize Theron would work with Nolan and PTA instead of Seth McFarlene and other losers.

    Anne Hathaway has a very slight resemblance to a woman I use to know, who thinks she looks more like her than she does, and her sketchy character in "Havoc" was a lot like that woman. Anyway, someone speculated the "hate" is based on an assumption that Hathaway is always performing, but what makes people think other actors aren't "always performing" when they are on talk shows? There's just some jealousy over Hathaway, in addition to a sense some people get from taking her "The Princess Diaries" characters too seriously, as if they wanted her to play that kind of role forever. I'm always open to her films because she seems rather diverse and uninhibited for an A-list actress, and comedic.

    Nolan is the master of cinema. Finished. McConaughey is more of a talented force than most people think. Finished. Hathaway is talented and beautiful. Finished. Best film of next year. Finished. Hate this...you're an idiot.

    That's satire of a Nolan fanboy right?

  • rodie | April 9, 2013 5:54 PMReply

    I am not among them, but it is my understanding that people hate on Hathaway because they feel she doesn't come off as genuine in interviews and at awards shows. It's as if she's a supreme theatre kid who never found her own true personality so instead she's ALWAYS performing.

  • Alex | April 10, 2013 12:09 AM

    That's it basically.

    I don't understand the Anne Hathaway hate. It is beyond ridiculous, and it is based on absolutely nothing. Any young actress ( or any actress ) that can pull-off two iconic roles, like Catwoman & Fantine deserves her pick of the top coveted roles in Hollywood. Hathaway is very versatile, and she is one of the few young A-list actresses that will be around for a long time.

    I wish he'd bring back someone from his earlier films, like Guy Pearce, Hilary Swank, Joe Pantoliano, hell, Robin Williams in space.

    Kevin: It's not exactly a mystery why people started disliking Hathaway. I certainly agree that she's a great actress, but when you come across as phony as she did during EVERY awards show this past award season, it can't help but rub people the wrong way. The closing of her Oscar acceptance speech was one of the most pompous, self-important and asburd things I've ever heard, and it showed either an extreme lack of self-awareness or an extreme lack of judgment. In front of the camera, she's one of the best actresses around; on stage or in interviews, she's one of the worst. People know overly rehearsed phoniness when they see it, and Hathaway's got that in spades.

  • Chris | April 9, 2013 6:00 PM

    "Here's hoping that someday in the not-too-distant future, the misfortunes of Fantine will only be found in stories." Are you kidding me, dude? Who takes the opportunity during an award-show speech to make a ridiculous plea for the end of prostitution and poverty, while making a proxy association with her own performance? If you don't see what's so phony and disingenuous about that line ... well, I don't really know what to tell you. But good god. Also, it's not really schadenfreude, because schadenfreude requires misfortune (in this case on Hathaway's part), and from what I understand no notable misfortune has befallen her, and at least a large degree of the animosity toward her is not about hoping misfortune befalls her, but that she just stop being so fake and over-rehearsed. Personally, I don't really care about any actor or actress's public persona, because I have no personal relationship with her or any other performer. Hathaway is one of the best actresses around, and she's one of my favorites. Ultimately that's what matters to me, so she'll continue being one of my favorites.

    Oh give it a rest. When you win every single award in your category over the course of a dozen award shows don't you think things begin to sound repetitive? The only reason DDL didn't sound the same is because he did a fraction of the press for Lincoln that Hathaway did for Les Miserables-Any thing he said hadn't all ready been said. I call all the gossip mongers full of BS. Talk to an actual person who hasn't painstakingly watched every awards show, and you'll see the public perception of Hathaway isn't any different than any other actress or actor.

    "The closing of her Oscar acceptance speech was one of the most pompous, self-important and asburd things I've ever heard, and it showed either an extreme lack of self-awareness or an extreme lack of judgment." I've watched just watched her Oscar acceptance speech and it seems to be no better or worse, no less sincere or more phony than any other speech. This whole hatred of Anne Hathway is just hi-tech lynch-mob hatred. Classic schadenfreude.

    noooooooo. i was getting excited for this after the mediocrity of inception and tdkr, and now all of a sudden, im not

  • MikeM | April 10, 2013 9:36 AM

    Jonathan Nolan co-wrote Memento, The Prestige, TDK and TDKR. He did not co-write Inception or Batman Begins. Enough said? (TDKR, if you strip it down, should have been a great trilogy ender, it was just ... overladen with stuff, maybe?)

  • mpm | April 9, 2013 5:49 PM

    I liked TDKR, even though the film had some problems, but I would never refer to Inception as mediocre. Please, stop your trolling. Thank You !

  • Real | April 9, 2013 5:10 PMReply

    Nolan has got to be one of the most loyal directors around. Seems like if you work with him once and he likes you then you are set. Hope he can find some room in this cast for the underrated Cillian Murphy.

  • Jason | January 5, 2014 11:50 PM

    when someone used the phrase, 'dick-riding' they should be disqualified in an intellectual debate.

  • KT | April 9, 2013 6:23 PM

    @MPM

    Please stop your dick-riding. 'Inception' was mediocre. And 'The Dark Knight Rises' was worse.

  • caro | April 9, 2013 5:05 PMReply

    Michael Caine for sure! maybe Gary Oldman,Murphy and JGL! (Hardy and Bale are on other movies)
    now i understand why Spielberg delayed his sci-fi movie

  • jp | April 9, 2013 5:02 PMReply

    second, Caine said he was in already.
