Matthew McConaughey to Headline Christopher Nolan's Sci-Fi Flick 'Interstellar'?

Matthew McConaughey

After an award-winning performance in Magic Mike, Matthew McConaughey may be ready to go Interstellar. Deadline heard that the actor has been offered the lead role in Christopher Nolan's sci-fi movie.

If McConaughey accepts, he'll play a character named Cooper.

Not much is known about the plot of Interstellar other than that it may center on a group of scientists/explorers who went through a wormhole and ended up in alternate dimensions. These characters may be doing some time travel as well.

The script is written by Nolan's brother Jonathan, but Christ is doing a rewrite to incorporate in some of his own ideas so the details above may have changed.

Interstellar was originally Steven Spielberg's, but it fell to Nolan when Spielberg cleared his slate to focus on developing a more personal telling of Robopocalypse.

The movie is a joint production between Paramount and Warner Bros, and the release date has been set for November 7, 2014.
