The Corn Stalk Rises? Rumored Plot Of Christopher Nolan's 'Interstellar' May Literally Be Corny

So "Interstellar" is now shooting up in Canada (eh!), and of course, there are no specifics on the plot, because that's just how Christopher Nolan rolls. However, any morsels that do leak out will be dissected and discussed and perhaps blown out of proportion until Nolan decides to lift the sheet, and it can get a bit silly. But it's Friday, a long weekend is coming up, so why not waste a few minutes puzzling out this new bit of intel. And note: there may be spoilers ahead.

Christopher Nolan, The Dark Knight,

So "Interstellar" is now shooting up in Canada (eh!), and of course, there are no specifics on the plot, because that's just how Christopher Nolan rolls. However, any morsels that do leak out will be dissected and discussed and perhaps blown out of proportion until Nolan decides to lift the sheet, and it can get a bit silly. But it's Friday, a long weekend is coming up, so why not waste a few minutes puzzling out this new bit of intel. Please note there may be spoilers ahead.

What we do know thus far is that the movie involves a bunch of beautiful Hollywood people — Matthew McConaughey, Jessica Chastain, Michael Caine, Anne Hathaway, Casey Affleck, Bill Irwin, Ellen Burstyn, John Lithgow, Wes Bentley, Mackenzie Foy, Timothee Chalamet, Topher Grace, David Oyelowo and Matt Damon — traveling through a wormhole. But it could it be that Nolan's film is basically the $200 million dollar version of "At Any Price"?

According to the Ford Macleod Gazette (located in Alberta, where the movie is shooting, so not just some random story), they describe the plot thusly: "Set in the future, the movie details the toll climate change has taken on agriculture, with corn the last crop to be cultivated. The scientists embark on a journey through a worm hole into other dimensions in search of somewhere other crops can be grown."

"The Corn Stalk Rises"? Who knows what to make of this, and remember Nolan (and his team) tend to only reveal what they want to, so this could total subterfuge, a small point in a bigger story. Or maybe, "Interstellar" is basically "2001: A Corn Odyssey." Thoughts, opinions? You know where to leave 'em...
