David Oyelowo (Lee Daniels' the Butler) and David Gyasi (Cloud Atlas) have signed on to star in Interstellar. As is the case with all of the Interstellar casting stories, no details about their characters were revealed.

The story centers on a group of explorers who go on a journey that pushes the boundaries of science and technology, which is based on the scientific theories of Kip S. Thorne, who believes wormholes exist and have the ability to take us through time. Matthew McConaughey, Anne Hathaway, Jessica Chastain, Michael Caine, Bill Irwin, Casey Affleck, Mackenzie Foy, John Lithgow, Topher Grace, and Wes Bentley are confirmed to star.
