Today's Nolan News: Christopher In Talks To Direct Brother Jonathan's Script INTERSTELLAR

More heady sci-fi filmmaking could be on the horizon for Christopher Nolan, director of those Batman movies, Inception and Memento. He is in talks to produce and direct, Interstellar, based on a script by his brother Jonathan, which in turn is based on a treatment by CalTech gravitational physicist and astrophysicist Kip Thorne. 

Prior to Jonathan Nolan's scripting involvement, Interstellar began as a treatment written by Thorne and producer Lynda Obst back when Spielberg was attached. According to Thorne, Interstellar concerns what he calls "the warped side of the universe" Movieline


This would mark the fifth time (more or less, Momento was simply based on Jonah's short story) that the brothers' creative juices will be combined to concoct the cinematic equivalent of... of... look, I'm not the creative one here, Chris and Jonathan are. Call it what you will: protein shake, juice bar, swamp juice, vodka tonic? It boils down to good cinema.  

The story involves time travel and alternate dimensions and sees a group of explorers travel through a wormhole. THR


I've included a video of Kip Thorne explaining his theories about warped time. It is pure science babble but should give an idea of the science that Chris and Jonathan will attempt to explain to us non-science types. Bring it!

    I was watching the extras on THE DARK KNIGHT RISES and I was struck by the odd realisation that while Chris Nolan is very British indeed his brother appears to be very American.

    Now that "Anybody Can Be Batman" is behind us, the Nolans can slip ever-more quietly away, like they deserve. There has never been a more-over-rated director. (Of course that's hyperbole: it's still the internet!) Yet, seriously --- Look: There's a head, talking. Now look: There's a head listening and responding. Now watch as the two heads walk their bodies, shoulder-to-shoulder across a space while talking, in turn. Look here: Actiony-stuff that you can't quite make out. Ah: Panorama. Now, more talking.

    So Christopher Nolan doesn't meet your desire for fancy shots that don't mean anything to the story or characters at hand. Nolan's reputation as a director was well-founded before the Batman films, and the man simply knows how to tell a story on screen, which something that far too many directors have forgotten how to do these days.

    Nonsense.
