Matthew McConaughey Offered Lead Role In Christopher Nolan's INTERSTELLAR

The Dark Knight Trilogy director Christopher Nolan has reportedly offered the male lead of his upcoming sci-fi film Interstellar to Matthew McConaughey (Magic Mike, Lincoln Lawyer).



After completing The Dark Knight Trilogy last summer, Christopher Nolan will be tackling science fiction for his next project, Interstellar. According to Deadline, the acclaimed writer-director is courting Matthew McConaughey (recently seen in Magic Mike) to take on the male lead role in the Paramount/Warner Bros. co-production. The name of the character is Cooper, and there's no word on whether McConaughey will sign on yet. Interstellar, which has a release date of November 7th, 2014, was originally written by Chris' brother Jonah for Steven Spielberg (who was then attached to direct). The script was inspired by physicist Kip S. Thorne and his theory about wormholes and time travel. When Chris Nolan signed on to direct earlier this year, he also began writing his own script that merged with Jonah's. Interstellar follows "a heroic interstellar voyage to the farthest borders of our scientific understanding." Do you think Matthew McConaughey is a good choice to star?
