Matthew McConaughey and Anne Hathaway are getting some good company in Christopher Nolan’s new movie, “Interstellar.” According to new reports, Jessica Chastain is in talks to portray a “third lead” in the film.
Deadline doesn’t know more about her role beyond the fact that “this is a great follow to her Oscar-nominated turn in ’Zero Dark Thirty.'” In fact, little is known about the movie in general, and its stars plan to keep it that way.
When MTV News spoke with McConaughey recently, he stayed mum about any and all things related to the film.
“Oh, I can tell you a little bit, but even that is sort of under lock and key. It really is,” he said. “For whatever reason and most of them I understand, they choose to say ’That’s our business and how we do it. We don’t advertise it.’ I spoke to [Nolan] months ago, not about anything specific, but he, obviously, is a man who makes his own choices from an independent state. I’m glad that he saw something in me that he thinks that I should be the guy.”
As for the script, McConaughey said, “I give it a thumbs up.”
“Interstellar” is slated for a November 7, 2014 release, and will be shot in IMAX. It is reportedly about time travel and includes plot points like wormholes, alternate dimensions and some character named Kip Thorne. “Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy” cinematographer Hoyte Van Hoytema has been tapped to join the movie as well.
