Man of Steel composer Hans Zimmer has been confirmed to provide the score for director Christopher Nolan's upcoming sci-fi thriller Interstellar. Here's what the composer had to say, revealing he has already started writing some of the music, even though shooting has not begun yet.

"I wrote something... and I'm writing that. So, yes, we have started."

The news isn't exactly surprising, since Hans Zimmer has composed the scores for Christopher Nolan movies such as Batman Begins, The Dark Knight, Inception, and The Dark Knight Rises.

Matthew McConaughey, Anne Hathaway, Jessica Chastain, and Michael Caine are confirmed to star in Interstellar, which centers on a journey through outer space that pushes the boundaries of science and technology. It isn't known when production will begin.
