New Info Makes Chris Nolan's INTERSTELLAR Sound Corny; First Look At Jessica Chastain On Set
Oh my goodness, did I put Chris Nolan and corny in the same headline? I guess I did. Relax, it's not what you think. New information about the film reveals that corn, the agricultural crop, will have a major role. Also, come see some new set photos.
This week, filming for Christopher Nolan’s big-budget sci-fi movie commenced in Fort Macloed, which is located in Alberta, Canada. The star of the film, Matthew McConaughey, and his fellow actors John Lithgow, Jessica Chastain and Topher Grace were all spotted on set. Most of the action has taken place on the town's Main Street. There, Nolan has had his crew using industrial-sized fans to whip up a blinding dust storm. Then vehicles with actors, such as McConaughey with John Lithgow, drove through the storm in a pickup truck.
A local paper, the Fort Macleod Gazette, has some additional information about the film:
"Set in the future, the movie details the toll climate change has taken on agriculture, with corn the last crop to be cultivated. The scientists embark on a journey through a worm hole into other dimensions in search of somewhere other crops can be grown."
