Wes Bentley Rounds Out The Cast Of Christopher Nolan's INTERSTELLAR
The "final vacant slot" in the impressive ensemble cast of Christopher Nolan's Interstellar has been filled, as The Hunger Games' Wes Bentley is negotiating to join The Dark Knight Trilogy writer-director's highly anticipated sci-fi project.
With filming expected to begin later this year, the Paramount/Warner Bros. Pictures co-production Interstellar has added yet another name to its, er, stellar cast. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Wes Bentley (The Hunger Games, Lovelace) is negotiating for what's being called the final empty spot in the line-up of the Christopher Nolan-directed sci-fi epic. Matthew McConaughey, Anne Hathaway, Jessica Chastain, Michael Caine, Casey Affleck, John Lithgow and Topher Grace headline the highly anticipated film. As expected, plot and character details are being kept under wraps; however, sources tell THR that Bentley has a "meaty supporting role."
With a script written by Jonathan Nolan (and later rewritten by Chris to merge his own original idea), Interstellar follows a heroic group of explorers who travel through a wormhole and into another dimension. The ideas are based on the work of physicist Kip Thorne, who's also an executive producer. With filming expected to begin later this year, the movie is slated for a November 7th, 2014 theatrical release and will be shot in IMAX.
