While his involvement in the DC Universe beyond the Batman series is still unclear, Christopher Nolan appears to have at least one new project set in stone. Earlier today, Deadline announced that Nolan’s latest directorial venture, the sci-fi film Interstellar, will be released in theaters and IMAX venues on Nov. 7, 2014.
Paramount is set to distribute the film domestically while Warner Bros. will handle the international release. Incidentally, production will not include the collaboration of Legendary Pictures, which helped fund Nolan’s Batman movies as well as the upcoming Man of Steel.
Details of the plotline are still vague at best, but what’s confirmed is that Nolan will write and direct the film, which is based on a script by his brother Jonathan Nolan. The project, originally helmed by Steven Spielberg, will concern an interstellar, time travel voyage based on the theories of theoretical physicist, gravitational physicist and astrophysicist Kip Thorne.
