Christopher Nolan's Merging An Original Idea With Jonah Nolan's Old Screenplay For 'Interstellar'

It looks like Christopher Nolan fans will still have plenty to talk to about in 2013 -- and it won't all be about the Oscar snub "The Dark Knight Rises" received. Last night came word that, awards season or not, Nolan was already putting together a new project, the sci-fi pic "Interstellar." The big talking point around the movie was that it was something Steven Spielberg was once kicking around, with a script by Jonah Nolan and a story developed by theoretical physicist Kip Thorne. But now, there's even more reason to be excited, as the director will be putting his own distinct stamp on the material.

It looks like Christopher Nolan fans will still have plenty to talk to about in 2013 -- and it won't all be about the Oscar snub "The Dark Knight Rises" received. Last night came word that, awards season or not, Nolan was already putting together a new project, the sci-fi pic "Interstellar." The big talking point around the movie was that it was something Steven Spielberg was once kicking around, with a script by Jonah Nolan and a story developed by theoretical physicist Kip Thorne. But now, there's even more reason to be excited, as the director will be putting his own distinct stamp on the material.

According to Deadline, Nolan is taking the script that his brother wrote, and combining it with his own original idea, and writing a new script (the movie will retain the title). Thorne is still on board as a technical consultant. As for the exact story, yesterday it was said that it will follow a group of explorers who go through a wormhole, in a story about time travel and alternate dimensions. While today, things are a bit more vague, as stating it will "depict a heroic interstellar voyage to the farthest borders of our scientific understanding."

We can only imagine that just like the early days of "The Dark Knight Rises," there will be plenty of speculation and guesswork, but either way, I think we can all agree that Nolan taking his ambition on a bigger scale is something to really look forward to. He'll spend the early part of the year as executive producer on his friend and cinematographer Wally Pfister's directorial debut "Transcendence," and of course there's "Man Of Steel" coming this summer. It sounds as if he's still putting things together for "Interstellar," and if he's doing more writing, then it might not be camera-ready just yet. But hopefully once his commitments to those two movies wrap up, this won't be too far behind.
