Matthew McConaughey Confirmed for Christopher Nolan's ‘Interstellar’

Matthew McConaughey confirmed to star in InterstellarMatthew McConaughey has confirmed that he is starring in director Christopher Nolan's upcoming film Interstellar. When asked about the project during a recent interview, the actor responded with a brief statement.

"I'm confirming."

We reported last week that the actor had been offered the lead role of Cooper, but it wasn't known if he had accepted or entered into negotiations at the time. No details were given for his character. The story will follow a journey into outer space that broadens our understanding of scientific knowledge. Our report from last week also revealed that the project is loosely based on the scientific theories of Kip S. Thorne, who believes that wormholes do actually exist and can be used for time travel.

Christopher Nolan is directing from a screenplay he co-wrote with his brother, Jonathan Nolan. Christopher Nolan is also producing with Emma Thomas and Lynda Obst, with Kip S. Thorne serving as an executive producer and consultant. It isn't known when production will begin.

Interstellar was released November 7th, 2014.

    I'm already very much looking forward to this, even though this movie is so far a mystery, Christopher Nolan is the greatest, the Batman trilogy and Inception has already #1 on my radar, and Matthew McConaughey is a very great actor.

      No doubt, @superman81. Haven't seen Killer Joe or Lincoln Lawyer, but it's obvious from the trailers he was excellent. I have seen The Paperboy, which he was also great in, and Mud looks to be another terrific effort from Mr. McConaughey.

        @thedude-abides if you have seen Killer Joe then you know he can be a serious actor. He was excellent in the Lincoln Lawyer. This will for sure be a movie to see
